Packing

 

To assist with move out, it's often easier to start moving items home in smaller loads, it is advised that you have all of your belongings packed and ready to go before your family and friends come to pick you up. Parking will be restricted during move-out, so it will be easiest if you prepare prior to your ride's arrival. Starting Monday, May 13th, no overnight permits will be sold. Have everything packed in containers that are easy to stack, and do as much cleaning in advance as you can. You may want to start moving out winter clothes and larger items during the weeks before final exams.

Extra cardboard boxes are available on the upper level of the Sandburg parking garage, and in Cambridge Commons and RiverView garage. Some boxes may be broken down, so you will need packing tape to reassemble them.

 

Cleaning

 

Cleaning supplies are available for pre-order ($10) at your floor's closing meeting. Pre-ordered supply buckets will be delivered to you, and billed to your PAWS account. A limited number of cleaning supply buckets will be available for walk-up purchases at the Service Desks. Supply buckets purchased at the Service Desk will cost $15.

Make sure to thoroughly clean your room before you check out. Please see the last page of the Move Out Guide for a suggested cleaning checklist.

Although University Housing has vacuums and carts available for check out, the wait can take over an hour during peak times. If you would like to avoid waiting, please bring your own vacuum to clean your room or suite.
