Spring Closing 2021

Buildings close: Sunday, May 2, 2021 at 12:00 pm CDT

Spring 2021 Semester Closing 

Finals Week is April 26-30, 2021. Students should plan to complete the checkout process 24 hours after their last final. All residence halls, residential colleges, and Northgate Apartments close on Sunday, May 2, 2021 at 12:00pm CDT.

Starting on April 12th, students are permitted to have two guests assist them with the checkout process. Each guest will need to stop at the front desk to get a wristband, which will identify them and provide them access to assist students moving out.

Prior to checking out, student rooms must be completely empty and clean. Personal items should not be left in any room or hallway. All trash must be brought to the dumpster. Rooms left excessively dirty or left with personal items may result in additional fees.

Students must properly check out within the Student Housing Portal using one of two options.

Express Checkout  The student is fully responsible for independently verifying that they are ready to properly check out of their room. The student will complete the checkout process online at their convenience. No Student Housing staff member will be present to physically check the student’s space while the student remains in the room. 

In-person Checkout  The student can complete the checkout process in-person with a Student Housing staff member. The student should go to the front desk of their assigned residence hall or apartment and request an in-person checkout. In-person checkouts will be available daily. A Student Housing staff member will be present to physically walk through the room with the students to verify potential damages and cleanliness of the student’s space.

Students must login to the Student Housing Portal and select Checkout from the red menu bar. They will then be directed to either the express checkout process or the in-person check out process. Both require the student to check out in the Student Housing Portal. Students should not check out at the front desk.

Damage Charges

Any applicable damage charges will be added to student Bursar accounts in late May. Student Housing encourages all students to review their Bursar accounts for potential damage charges. The damage charges appeals process is open from May 17, 2021 to July 1, 2021 at 4pm and will be available in the Student Housing Portal. Anything submitted after that date will not be considered. All questions regarding damage charges should be directed to Bree Gates at
