Move-In/Move-Out Information

Fall 2021 Move Out Information


Greetings Jumbos!
This website is designed to help you coordinate your move out for Fall 2021 and move in for Spring 2022.

All students, unless otherwise approved, are required to vacate campus housing by 12 PM on Thursday, December 23, 2021. 
Returning students are able to return to campus housing at 9 AM on Sunday, January 16, 2022.


Below you will find information regarding move out, the check-out process, general information regarding request for winter housing and more.

All students are required to vacate campus residence halls no later than December 23, 2021, at 12 NOON.

Students seeking winter break housing will be encouraged to apply for seasonal housing through the Dean of Student Affairs Office. More information on that request form will be available shortly. Whereas there is no housing cost associated with this stay, please note that students may be required to relocate to another location during this period of time.

Move Out Specifics!

It is imperative that students leaving campus properly prepare their rooms for an appropriate winter break. Please be sure to follow the below guidelines for ensuring that your residence hall space is properly set up for your departure this winter.

All on-campus residents are required to vacate campus housing by or before December 23, 2021, at 12 NOON. Students who have applied and been approved for on campus housing may be required to relocate to an available space on campus.

Preparing your room for break:

  • Throw out any garbage or perishable items (food, etc.) Please be sure to use dumpsters located around campus as the hallway bins will fill very quickly! Need help locating your nearest dumpster and recycling area? The Office of Sustainability has a pretty cool map that’ll help you find something close!
  • Don’t unplug your refrigerator! Unplugging your unit may lead to defrosting which may cause structural and or personal damage to your items in your space. As a reminder, the University is not liable for any damage to student items.
  • Donations! Are you planning to get rid of any personal items that may still be usable? Join the NRHH and Eco Reps with donating available clothing, textbooks, etc. by placing your items in the provided boxes in your residence hall lobbies.
  • Remember your valuables! While you are not required to pack all of your items before leaving, we do think it is important to ensure that you are taking all of your valuable items and anything you will need while over winter break as you will not be able to re-enter the building during break.


Winter Break Housing

Click here for more information on Seasonal Housing and how to submit a request for Winter Break Housing.

Students who need winter break housing are urged to complete a request for winter break stay with the Dean of Student Affairs (DOSA) Office. As public health considerations require us to limit the number of students on campus, this process requires application and approval through DOSA. We remain committed to working individually with people who have no feasible alternatives due to international travel restrictions, severe financial hardship, or the lack of safe housing outside the university.

Please note that application for winter break housing is not for students who only wish to stay on campus – approval is for those with a legitimate need. Eligible individuals must:

  • Be participating in the fall 2021 and spring 2022 terms in person.
  • Have a fall 2021 and spring 2022 on-campus housing assignment.
  • Have an extenuating circumstance that prevents you from finding housing elsewhere during the winter break period.


Students who are approved to remain on campus following review may be required to relocate from their current housing assignment to a temporary assignment for the duration of the break.  Information about these location changes will be available prior to residence hall closing on December 23, 2021.

Most campus services will be closed during the winter break period. Dewick-MacPhie Dining Center will be open for breakfast and lunch January 3-7 and 10-14. An intersession meal plan is available to access along with JumboCash. 

All students who are granted approval to stay on campus over winter break must continue to take COVID tests and follow all COVID safety protocols.

Spring 2022 Return

The residence halls will reopen for students on Sunday, January 16, 2022, at 9 AM. Unless otherwise approved, students will not be eligible to arrive early to campus. Students who have been approved to live on campus during the winter break period will be required to vacate any mandated moves by Saturday, January 15 at 12 NOON.

Planning Your Return to Campus

Students can begin returning to campus on Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 9 AM.
All returning students are required to test at 62R Talbot Ave prior to returning to your on-campus placement.

Students who are returning for the spring semester will need to test at 62R Talbot and pick up any room keys at 120 Packard Ave.
