Campus Living - Residence Life


Moving Out

Request your preferred check-out time from Campus Living. Schedule a time by which you can prepare your room and after which you are able to leave your room. If you are unprepared for your scheduled check-out, late check-out fees may apply! Campus Living will confirm your move out day by email. If you do not request a specific time, a time will be assigned between 7am and noon on your scheduled move out day.
Update your Refund Address on the Portal. Without a Refund Address, you will be ineligible to receive a deposit refund, and refunds expire 6 months after your check-out day! You can update your address on the Portal's "Profile" page.
Pack your things and clean your room. Pack and/or remove your personal items from your room (and shared spaces such as fridges, cupboards, storage locker, and basement storage where applicable). Any personal items left behind will be discarded within 10 business days and the cost of their disposal will be deducted from your deposit. Thoroughly clean all surfaces of your room (including walls, floors, toilet, etc.). Any cleaning charges incurred by UW for the room will be deducted from your deposit.
Be in your room for your scheduled check-out appointment. A staff member will meet you at your room to complete the check-out process with you. If you are not there or are unprepared, a late check-out fee may apply.
Have all applicable keys, cards, and fobs. Residence room keys, fobs, and laundry cards must be returned during the check-out appointment. (Your Salto card is also your student card, so you do not need to return it – Campus Living will deactivate your access based on your scheduled check-out time.)
Be prepared to leave your room after checking out. Once you complete your check-out, you can wait in your building's common areas or leave residence, but you will no longer have access to your room.
