Congratulations on another successful year! Now that the academic year is winding down, it is important to pay close attention to several important dates and procedures that are coming up! A brief description is located below for closing procedures as well as summer housing information. Detailed information and a step-by-step checklist for closing will be sent to you from your residence hall staff via UNH email and posted in your MyHousing account.
Room and Apartment Inspections:
During final room and apartment inspections, each RA will review the current condition of your room or apartment with you and your roommates. The RA’s will examine your entire living area for maintenance concerns, cleanliness and damages.
Roommates should discuss amongst yourselves and specify to your RA in advance who is responsible and who should be billed for any damages to the room or apartment. Please arrange a mutually convenient time with your RA for the room inspection to take place. To ensure success of this process, ALL roommates must be present.
Check Out Procedures:
Please make arrangements to vacate the residence halls no later than 24 hours after your last final exam. The residence halls will officially close at 10am on Thursday, May 12, 2016 for all undergraduates (except graduating seniors). Graduating seniors must vacate their rooms by Sunday, May 15, 2016 by 5pm.
Alert your RA/RD to the time you are departing campus, by signing up on their schedules posted on their doors. All students must officially check-out with a staff member and be cleared in order to hand in their keys prior to their departure. All students MUST turn in their residential keys at the time of their checkout with their RA/RD before leaving campus.
Express Check Out:
For students who wish to opt out of completing a check out with a residence life staff member and/or are moving out after the posted check-out hours, you will be permitted to complete an express check out form and place your keys in the provided envelope. For more information, please see posted signage in your lobby and or your RA the first week of May. Note: those who choose to complete an express check out will agree to responsibility of any damages found in their apt/room and waive their right to contest these damages.
