Update on residence hall move-out process for students

Dear students,

Please share with your parents or guardians.

We are writing to provide an update on the residence hall move-out process. After early move-out is concluded on April 5, we will have nearly 2,400 students completely moved out of the residence halls, allowing us to reduce the number of staff needed on campus and consolidate residents so we have space to quarantine individuals or respond to community requests.

During the month of April, moving/storage companies will come to campus to collect belongings already boxed by students and to begin a packing and storing process for students requesting that service. You may find these storage companies listed on the Residence Life website if you wish to utilize this option.

We are working to schedule the next round of move out beginning May 11, 2020, contingent on alignment with safer at home orders from state and local authorities. Please check the Campus Living portal in CheckMarq next week to sign up for a May move out timeslot, knowing the dates could change if government orders change. There is no need to fill out an exemption form if you plan to sign up for a May move-out date.

We ask that prior to coming to campus for May move-out, each student verify via the Residence Life website as well as the Campus Living portal in CheckMarq that we are still allowing the move out process. We reserve the right to cancel these appointments as recommendations are made by city, state and health officials.

This information is also available on the Residence Life website. If you have additional questions, please check the FAQs or contact ORL via email.

Please know the health, safety and well-being of our students and their families, as well as our Residence Life staff, is our top priority. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this very complex and fluid situation.
