UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
All residents leaving the residence hall are required to check out of their room with Residence Life staff before leaving campus.
Failure to properly check out or return the room/suite key(s) will result in financial charges to the resident’s account. This may include a room re-key fee and improper check out fee.
A Residence Life staff member will check to ensure that the resident has cleaned their room and will document any damages. Residence Life staff members will not check the room until the resident has finished cleaning the room and removed all personal belongings.
To schedule a check out appointment, residents can choose one of two options:
Schedule a check-out appointment with a Residence Life staff member 24 hours, or one business day, in advance.
Work with the Resident Assistant (RA) on duty between 6:30-10PM each day. The RA on duty can be reached at the RA kiosk in the hall lobby or by calling the RA on duty phone number. Phone numbers are posted at the exterior doors of the residence halls.
Prior to meeting with a Residence Life staff member to check out of the room, residents need to complete the following:
When a resident checks out of their room, the check in and check out sections of the Room/Suite Condition Report are compared to help assess damages that may have occurred in the room during occupancy, beyond normal “wear and tear. Approximate charges for damages are listed in the "Damages" section on the Administrative Policies web page.
To request a room move, please see the "Move Out" link on the Res Life home page.
To request a contract termination, please review the Residence Hall Contract Termination Request Form here. Residents who have withdrawn from the university have 48 hours to check out of their residence hall.
