Checkout Instructions

1. Schedule a room inspection.

Once you determine your checkout date, make an appointment at least 24 hours in advance to have your room inspected by your resident adviser.  

2. Notify your roommates and suitemates that you are moving out.

Discuss responsibility for any damage that occurred while you were living in your room and/or suite. Charges for cleaning, damage, missing items or trash disposal are automatically split between roommates/suitemates unless you clarify individual responsibility at the time of inspection. 

3. Vacate and clean your share of the space

You are expected to leave your room clean, empty and properly assembled for the next person to move in. Clean your share of your room and/or suite; responsibly dispose of your trash, recyclables and reusable items.

4. Complete your room inspection.

Your resident advisor will assess the condition of your room while you are present.

5. Check out in person at your front desk.

Go in person to your community's front desk to hand in your old room keys and complete a checkout receipt with your RA.

6. Stop using your meal plan as soon as you check out.

If you are moving out of a residence hall, your meal plan will automatically terminate on the day you check out. Using your meal plan after your checkout date will result in additional charges.

7. Redirect your postal mail and packages

If you are moving off of campus completely, inform Western of your new mailing address by updating Web4U; please wait 3-5 business days after checking out before you can make this change.
