The residence halls will close at noon on Saturday, June 8, 2019 for all residents. No one will be allowed to stay in the residence halls after this time. Residents who are intending to stay for summer classes and have signed up for summer housing will have a transition time period on Saturday June 8th.  Please contact or 509-963-1831 for questions regarding summer housing or go to

Checking Out of Your Room

A checklist is placed on all resident doors that outlines specific items that must be done before leaving for the year.  Please refer to this checklist for specific items in your residence hall.  In general, all students must return their rooms to move-in condition and ensure the following is done before leaving for break:

  • Ensure all University furniture is in room
  • Remove all personal belongings and personal furnitur
  • Remove all trash and recycling
  • Clean room: Dust, Sweep, Mop, etc. to return room to clean condition
  • Close and lock all windows
  • Close drapes/blinds
  • Turn-off all lights
  • Lock doors
  • Return rented books

Note: Any room damage, not returning your room to move-in condition, or improper check-outs will result in fees.

Check-Out Procedure 

  • Schedule a checkout time for a walkthrough of your room with the RA
    • Go to your MyHousing portal and select the button that says “student check-out”
  • You will select a time (24 hrs in advance as to when you are needing to leave)
  • When it is time for your scheduled check out time, you will meet the RA at your room to begin the check-out process
  • Much like the beginning of the school year, the RA will go through the Room condition Report with you
    • When the RCR is complete you will hand in your keys directly to the RA
  • Lastly, you will depart and have a great summer

Top 5 Things to Remember

1. Show up to your appointment
a. We schedule over 2,000 appointments in two weeks, if you don’t show up you will have to wait until an RA come available
b. If you leave the school without checking out, fees will be associated with an improper check out
2. Take all your belongings out of your room
a. We can’t check for damages when there are belongings in the room
3. Fully clean the room
a. If you are in a suite ensure the entire suite is clean (including bathroom, common area)
4. Maintenance Request
a. Look now and report any work order maintenance concerns with your room
5. Keys and Signing Off          
a. Turn your keys over to the RA, check your mailbox one last time and sign off on the check list outside your door!

Other Reminders: 

  • Sign up to be a Mover and Shaker for Fall 2019 and help move in the new first year class 
  • Start taking some belongings home over the next three day weekend
  • Start cleaning early (it sneaks up on us fast with finals and the accumulation of stuff)
  • Take a minute to reflect on making it through the school year! Good Job!
