Each student must notify the Office of Residential Life staff of his or her decision to leave the residence hall. The student must fill out, sign, and return a completed Check-out Envelope, including the room key. The room must be checked by a staff member, or the student must sign a waiver of their rights to appeal damage charges. Failure to do so will result in an improper-checkout fee. A student may also be charged an improper-checkout fee for missing or being late for a prescheduled checkout appointment with a Residential Life staff member, or not leaving the residence hall by the designated closing time.
