Spring move-out

End of year means move-out for residential students

Every May, thousands of University of Delaware students pack up to leave residence halls for the summer -- some as newly minted graduates.

Move-out typically begins on the last day of classes -- Tuesday, May 16 -- with peak move-out expected on Wednesday and Thursday, May 24-25.

Students are required to check out and leave the halls within 24 hours of their last exam; however, they may request a late stay through 10 a.m., Friday morning at no cost.

“Students who are graduating or those who are working or volunteering for Commencement can also apply to stay until 6 p.m., Saturday, at no charge,” said Kristin Rolnick, housing systems coordinator, Residence Life and Housing.

To request a late stay, students should complete the Late Stay Spring 2017 application in the Interim Housing section of the My Housing portal, available through May 24.

Full information about late stay options is available here.

Students must check out of their current assignment with a Residence Life and Housing staff member during posted checkout times or by appointment. Failure to do so may result in a fee.

“Now is a good time for students to report any maintenance issues to Facilities, Real Estate and Auxiliary Services via the online ‘Fix It’ form,” said Suwan Phommachanh, Facilities customer service supervisor.

Students must remove all of their belongings from their current room assignment and leave their room in good condition.

Very soon after move out, residence halls will be used for Alumni Weekend and summer camps and conferences.

“As students leave, they should remember that cars parked in the fire lane must always have a licensed driver in attendance with the vehicle,” said Jenni Sparks, manager, Parking Services. “Parking and loading/unloading are prohibited on certain city streets, including Academy Street.”

Some gated walkways will be open to allow vehicles to approach residence halls from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., on Wednesday and Thursday, May 24-25, including:

• The gates off David Hollowell Drive by Thomas McKean;

• The gates by New Castle Hall off the Caesar Rodney loading dock; and

• The gates off Wyoming Road by Eliphalet Gilbert.

Additionally, University Police suggest that students should continue to use crosswalks and be vigilant about their safety when walking, as there are likely to be many drivers in the area unfamiliar with campus.

More information about spring move-out can also be found on the Residence Life and Housing website.
