Check-out schedules will be posted by the RA on Reading and Review Day. You must sign up for a check-out at least 24 hours prior to your move-out.
The check-out process is simple and quick, but very important. If for some reason you are unable to line up a time with your own RA, they will help you set up a time with another staff member.
Check-out times are between 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
If you need to check-out before or after these times or if you signed up for an extended contract and you will be here past the time the hall closes, special arrangements can be made through your Hall Director. You must schedule a check-out time at least 24 hours prior to check-out. Residents who fail to check-out with a staff member will be charged $50, in addition to the cost of key replacement/recore and any cleaning or damage charges.
When your scheduled check-out time arrives, all of your belongings must be out of your room. Your area should be clean and in the same set-up arrangements as when you moved in. When you check-out with your RA, please make sure you have taken care of the following items:
- Room has been thoroughly cleaned (see room cleaning instructions).
- Return safety railing, ladder, and Rental Fridges to Open Service Center (if applicable).
- HDTV boxes are returned to a service center or Housing staff member.
- Lights are turned off.
- Keys are turned in to RA.
- Check-out forms have been properly completed.
- RA has been told of any repairs needed in room.
- Forwarding address updated in your Housing Self Service.

MORE MOVE OUT TIPS
Trash bags may be obtained from your RA. All trash is to be taken to the dumpsters. Place furniture and other large objects you are going to throw away beside the dumpster.
If you have a bike chained to a bike rack, don't forget to take it with you or move it to Noren Hall if you are staying for summer school. Bikes left after May 17, 2017 may be removed by the University.
If you live in a suite, the housekeepers will not clean your bathroom during finals week unless you make arrangements with your BST.
Your Postal Mail
During the summer months, all mail received by the Housing Office is forwarded to the Forwarding Address indicated in your Housing Self Service under Personal Information>Addresses.
To receive your mail faster, please:
- Change the address of all your magazines and newspapers before you leave school for the summer. (Non-1st class mail will not be forwarded.)
- Notify friends and family of your new summer address and when the address will be in effect.
- Go to your Housing Self Service, "Personal Information" and change your "Forwarding Address" to where you want to receive mail for the summer. This change occurs immediately.
- If you are attending summer school, please notify family, friends and all business contacts that all correspondence must be addressed to:
Room XXX Noren Hall
Grand Forks, ND 58202
The "XXX" is your summer assignment room number. Incoming mail with any other hall address (example: Squires Hall or Walsh Hall) will be forwarded to your home address.
Do you need to stay in your hall after the hall closes on Friday, May 12 at 7:00 p.m.?
Contact your RA or Hall Director or sign up for a Late Departure or Summer School Contract in your Housing Self Service. If you are staying for the graduation weekend, you must be checked out of your room by Noon Sunday, May 15.
