Residence Hall Move Out

Posted on May 12, 2022 | Filed under Archive

This post has been archived. Information below may be out of date and/or relate to a past event.

Students are expected to be moved out of their residence within 24 hours after their last exam, and no later than May 22 at noon.

  • Students who are participating in the Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 21 may stay until noon on Sunday, May 22.
  • Students who are waiting to take the next available airport shuttle may stay until their shuttle departs campus:
    Thursday, May 19 at 8:00 am to the Pittsburgh Airport
    Saturday, May 21 at 7:00 am to the Pittsburgh Airport and Megabus Station
  • Students who are approved to stay for the summer who are transitioning directly to summer housing may stay until their transition date the week of May 23.

Due to the short amount of time between the end of exams and commencement, students should complete the Express Check-out Form when they have vacated their room. This will indicate to the staff that you have removed all your belongings, turned in your key to the Campus Center Drop Box, and your room is ready for staff to inspect and turn to housekeeping.

We anticipate that there will be a lot of activity on campus May 21 and 22; if possible, we recommend taking home non-essential belongings prior to moving out.

The following areas will have limitations during the times/dates listed:

  • Friday, May 20 12:00 Noon – Saturday, May 22 at 6:00PM
    Students parking in the Oddfellows lot (21A and B) will need to relocate their vehicles to Allegheny Commons Lot (47)
    Students Parking in the Crawford Lot (7) will need to relocate their vehicles to Lot 4 behind Edwards.
  • Saturday, May 21 11:00AM-5:00PM – Students in Schultz, Brooks, and Walker Annex may not move out due to commencement activities (sidewalks and parking lots will not be available) [Brooks Walk will be closed until at least 6pm]
    *If it rains and Commencement is in the Wise Center, Students in Crawford, Edwards may not move out between 11:00AM-5:00PM.

Check Out Procedures:

  • All of your personal items must be removed from the room. All surfaces should be clean and free of debris. All furniture should be returned to its standard placement. Floors should be swept/vacuumed. All items (including tape, command hooks, etc.) should be removed from the walls.
  • All garbage should be taken to the nearest dumpster. See attachment for locations. Garbage bags that are left in rooms or hallways are subject to damage billing fines. Do not leave any items in the lobbies of the buildings; there is no donation collection.
  • Houses: Trash may not be stacked up outside of the house — it must be taken to a campus dumpster.
  • If you have a loft kit, it should be dismantled and returned to the designated spot in your building before you check out. Ask your RA for your building’s specific location.
  • Complete the Express Check-out Form to confirm the condition of the room upon leaving. RAs are not able to determine if there will be any damage charges; you will receive communication via email from Residence Life if there are any charges.
  • Once you have checked out, you must return your key to the Student Life Suite Key Drop Off area (third floor of the Campus Center) between 6:00 AM and midnight. Keys not returned to the Student Life Suite will incur a $125 lock change fee per key. There is a drop box for keys to be returned after business hours at this location.
