UCF Move-Out Guidelines

Hello, Knights! We really hope you enjoyed
living on campus this semester. Now that it’s move-out time, we have some important reminders and tips to help you on move-out day. Prior to the move-out dates, you
will receive a newsletter with information on closing meetings and
move-out procedures. It’s important that you read this information carefully. Also, check your Knights email for more instructions. Everyone has to return
their room key to their community office and their mail key to their mail center.
If you don’t, you will be charged. While you’re at it, update your mailing address so all your mail and packages can be forwarded. Items that can not be
forwarded will just be returned to the sender. And if you’ve lost your room key
or card, you’ll still need to sign out at your community office. So if you have any
questions, ask there. For a stress-free move-out process, students should follow these guidelines. Being move-out ready starts with having everything clean and empty. Remove all personal items, including decorations, throughout your room, bathroom, and kitchen and living room, if you have them. Some other things you’ll want to do are close your blinds, set your thermostat to 72 degrees, and
leave all housing appliances, including cable equipment, plugged in. If your unit
had a fridge, microwave, or stove, clean the entire inside and outside of each. If
you brought a personal mini fridge, defrost it ahead of time. Lastly, make sure all floors are vacuumed or swept. Whether you live in a private room or share a space with a roommate, everyone moving needs to meet with a housing staff member to complete a walk-through of your room and sign your room condition form. And if you do share a room,
make sure you indicate which side was yours. Once the last roommate checks out,
they’ll also perform a walk-through with a staff member to make sure the room is
move-in ready for its next residents. Once you’ve completed these steps, you’re ready to leave. Make sure you grab any final personal items. because you can’t re-enter your room once you’ve moved out. Don’t leave trash in the hallways. Place all trash and cardboard boxes in the dumpsters closest to your building. Here are some additional tips for a smooth move-out. Report any maintenance
issues immediately. It’s your job to let staff know of any problems in your room
before checking out. Do not park in fire lanes. For a speedy move-out, residents should go check out with a photo ID and their keys while their
family and friends can begin loading their items. And prepare for Florida’s weather changes by bringing plenty of water and an umbrella. Well Knights, that’s all for now. By taking personal responsibility for these easy steps, we know you’ll have a successful move-out. As always, go Knights!
