Moving out of your hall

Your license agreement with University Housing is through the full academic year, ending in May 2020. You do not move out of your room at the end of the Fall semester. Preparing for a successful move-out in May requires planning and having the right information. To reduce the stress at the end of the Spring semester, follow the steps below for move-out dates, times, and procedures.

If you are not enrolled in classes and living with us for Summer 2020, you will need to check out of your room within 24 hours after your last final.

Checkout Checklist

To complete the check-out process, you must:

  • Return your mailbox key to The UPS Store (**if applicable) prior to your scheduled checkout time
  • Complete the final room inspection with a Community Assistant and sign a checkout form OR Complete the Express Check-out form and sign liability acknowledgments
  • Return your room key

 There are financial consequences if the proper checkout procedures are not followed.

How to set up your final room inspection?

  • Attend your Community Assistant’s closing meeting to find out more about the checkout procedures for your specific residential community.
  • Schedule a checkout appointment with your Community Assistant.
    Allow at least 30 minutes for your room inspection and checkout.
    Your room will be assessed based on the Room Inventory Report that you created at move-in.
    Students who are responsible for damages to a room, furniture or any part of the residence hall will be billed directly for repairs, missing keys, excessive cleaning, or missing furniture or equipment in June. If the damage is a shared responsibility, see your Community Director for specific instructions.
    End-of-term damage assessment notices are emailed to your address. Damage assessments are billed directly to your My ASU student account.
  • Make sure all of your personal belongings are removed from your room prior to the appointment.
  • Take time to clean your room and bathroom.
    Charges will be assessed for damages and cleaning, if applicable. 

*This process does not apply to Taylor Place Residents.

What assistance is available for packing, storing, and/or shipping personal belongings?

University Housing partners with University Student Services (USS) for a number of services, now including packing, storage, and shipping of personal belongings! This service is available for residents at the Downtown, Polytechnic, Tempe, and West campuses. For more information and to order these services, please visit their website:

What is express checkout?

Express checkout is available for residents who are unable to check out with your Community Assistant, due to reasons beyond your control. Failure to check out with your CA or refusal to sign the express checkout form does not release you of any cleaning or damage charge fees. Cleaning charges and any damage charges may be assessed to your account and remain your responsibility.
