standard check-out procedure

All residents are required to schedule a check-out time with their Resident Advisor. Check-out appointments will be available beginning Monday, May 15 through Friday, May 19 at 10 p.m.

All of your belongings must be removed from your room prior to check-out and the common space (apartments only) should be cleaned. During the check-out process you will complete a Room Condition Report and turn in all of your keys. You will be emailed a copy of the RCR as proof of your check-out process.

If you intend to check-out before May 15, contact your Resident Advisor to schedule a check-out appointment.
Residents are encouraged to leave within 24 hours of their last final.

TIP: Do not remove or throw away the small black trashcan and/or toilet plunger found in your living space – you will be charged if these items are missing upon check-out.

Any items left in your space after you have completed your check-out appointment will be deemed abandoned and a fee ($120) will be assessed for improper check-out.

Overnight Check-Out Procedure

If you intend to check-out between the hours of 10 p.m. and 8 a.m., Monday, May 15 – Friday, May 19, you will need to notify your Resident Advisor that you would like to complete an overnight check-out. Your RA will provide the necessary forms to complete this process. Should you choose to complete an overnight check-out, you waive your right to complete the Room Condition Report and appeal any fees charged for damage to your living space.

Request for Late Check-Out

If you are a graduating senior or an official participant in commencement, you may request to stay in your room until Sunday, May 21, 2017.

Donate unwanted clothing, housewares, e-waste etc. and help create jobs in Orange County. Bins will be located on the first floor of each Residence Hall and Single Apartment Building in addition to the Cypress MPR.

  • J Lot (Turn Around)
  • Cypress
  • RH Lot (Between Holly and Fig)

MicroFridge Return

Any resident who has rented a MicroFridge is instructed to leave the unit in their assigned room. All units will be picked up the week of May 22 – residents do not need to be present for pick-up.

To avoid a $30 cleaning fee, units must be:

  1. Left Inside your Room: If you have moved or transferred the fridge to another room, please notify Collegiate Concepts. If the MicroFridge cannot be found, you will be billed for a replacement unit.
  2. Fully Defrosted: Unplug the unit the night before. Do not use any sharp objects to defrost the unit.
    Tip the unit back to collect water so as to not spill on to the carpet.
  3. Completely Clean and Dry: This includes seals and inside/outside surfaces of the refrigerator, freezer and microwave. There will be a $30 charge assessed by Collegiate Concepts if not cleaned.
  4. Returned with all parts: Ice cube trays and ice scraper, top shelf and bottom shelf, microwave plate and ring. There will be additional charges for missing parts.
  5. Please leave refridgerator and freezer doors open.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call Collegiate Concepts Customer Service Department at
515-597-2303 or email: sales@collegefridge.com.

Spectrum Cable Boxes

All residents who have contracted with Spectrum Cable need to make arrangements to return their cable boxes directly to Spectrum Cable – boxes should not be left inside your residence hall room or apartment living room. Housing and Residence Life is not responsible for the return of cable boxes.

Housing tip: You will not have access to your room once you have checked out. It is your responsibility to ensure your cable box is returned or taken with you prior to check-out.
