To check out of the room, residents can work with the Resident Assistant (RA) on duty each day between 6:30-10PM. Residents can contact the RA on duty at the hall kiosk or by calling the RA on duty phone number posted on the exterior doors of the residence halls. Residents can also schedule and appointment with hall staffat least 24 business hours in advance. Room key must be turned in at the time of check-out.
Failure to properly check out or return your room key will result in financial charges to the student’s account, which may include an improper checkout fee and room re-key fee.

(Residents who have withdrawn from the university have 48 hours to check out of their residence hall)
A Residence Life staff member will check to ensure that the student has cleaned their room and will document any damages. Staff members will not check the room until the student has finished cleaning the room and removed all of their belongings.
The following description should be used by students as a guide to follow prior to checking out of their room:
When a student checks out of their room, the check-in and checkout sections are then compared to help assess damages that may have occurred in the room during the student’s occupancy, beyond normal “wear and tear.”
Approximate charges for damages are listed in the "Damages" section on the Administrative Policies web page.
