Spring Closing Newsletter

Can you believe we are already near the end of the academic year? Please read the important move out information to avoid unnecessary charges and ensure a smoother move-out process.

Move out Deadline

You must check out of your room by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 14.

Failure to check out by the deadline will result in an improper checkout fee and other avoidable charges.

Start Packing Now

Don’t wait until final’s week to start packing and cleaning! If you start early and pack a little bit each day, it will make your checkout much easier.

Tip: If you are headed home over Memorial Day weekend, take some stuff with you! Unlike Fall Move In, we don’t have student volunteers available to help you move out.

Bed Parts

Before moving out, return all bed parts to your building's bed parts room and assemble your bed as noted on the checkout sheet given to you by your RA.

For bed parts return schedule and room locations visit Bed Parts.

Checkout Procedure

Remember these five steps when checking out:

  1. Schedule a room inspection
  2. Notify your roommates/suitemates that you are moving out
  3. Vacate and clean your share of the space
  4. Complete your room inspection
  5. Check out at your front desk

For more information on proper checkouts please review Checkout Procedure.

Dispose of Trash, Compost, Recyclables and Donate Unwanted Items

Take out trash, recycling and compost. Please rinse out your compost bin and leave it in your room for our staff to collect in the summer.

Every community has a designated collection area for students to donate reusable clothing, technology, toiletries, etc. Donations are processed by the AS Recycle Center and donated to charity.

Dining Services

Friday, June 14 is the last day to spend your Dining Dollars!

Note: lunch is the last meal served in each of the dining commons. For a full list of dining hours during Crunch Week and Finals Week please visit Campus Dish.

Personal Storage

Western does not offer student storage. If you have a lot of gear you don’t want to take home, you may want to arrange for personal storage.
