Adjusted Procedures for Move Out

  • Parking management will not be present. 15-minute parking passes will be available at the Front Desk – someone must be present with the vehicle during this time.
  • Only one person can be in an elevator at any time.
  • Guests should be in good health. Individuals in the following categories should refrain from helping residents move out:
    • Older adults
    • Women who are pregnant
    • Individuals with serious underlying medical conditions
  • Roommates are asked to coordinate their return and are discouraged from being in the room at the same time.
  • Items to bring:
    • Face coverings/masks are required for both yourself and your guest at all times¬†
    • Sanitization supplies (ex: wipes, disinfectant, hand sanitizer)
    • Please bring your own dolly or cart if needed. A limited amount of moving carts are available.
  • You will have one hour to move your belongings out of your assigned unit.
  • Make sure to carry your i-card and keys with you at all times during your check-out so that we can minimize lock-outs and issuance of loaner keys.
