UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
All residents leaving the residence hall are required to check out of their room with hall staff before leaving campus. The student needs to contact their Hall Director (HD) to schedule an appointment at least 24 hours, or one business day, in advance of the day they want to check out.
Failure to properly check out 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Residents who have withdrawn from the University have 48 hours to check out of their residence hall.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 checklist 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.
