Move Out Guide

Spring 2020 Move Out

Move Out will look a little different this year as we maintain social distancing guidelines to protect the safety of our students, staff and their families.

 

On May 8, 2020 we reached out to all residential students requesting an update about their current room status on the Spring 2020 Move Out Form. Some students took all their belongings in March, others need to return to campus to move-out.

 

Students who consider themselves moved out are required to electronically check-out on the Spring 2020 Move Out Form.

 

Residents who need to return to campus will have the opportunity to select an appointment to move out. This opportunity was offered in two phases: Delaware residents began Move Out appointments on May 12 and Out-of-State resident appointments begin May 17.

 

Students and their guests who are coming to campus to move out are required to take COVID-19 safety precautions and will be asked to complete and monitor a pre-Arrival Health Assessment, practice social distancing and wear a face covering. 

 

Please reference the Move Out Guide below for more details about our Move out Process. We thank you for your patience and flexibility during this time.

Spring 2020 Move Out 

We are now able to begin to develop a Move Out process for all students who were residing on campus in Spring of 2020. However, many of the State of Delaware travel restrictions remain in place. For this reason, we will be implementing a multi-phased Move Out plan.

Our first step is to collect information from ALL students about their Move Out status. Please fill out the Spring 2020 Move Out form at your earliest convenience.

  Driving Directions to Campus

We thank you for the information you provided us back in March, however since that survey, many students’ situations have changed. We now need to collect up-to-date information about the current status of your Move Out. (Information such as if you have belongings left in your room, if you are completely moved-out, etc.). We will use the information collected to help us to devise the necessary systems for a safe Move Out process that minimizes contact.

 

Please complete the first part of the Spring 2020 Move Out form.

 

This form will help us to know the exact needs of our residents from this point forward. This form will also offer any students who do not need to return to campus to move out their belongings the opportunity to officially “check out” of their residence hall electronically from home.

If you do not need to return to campus to remove any belongings and you complete the form, there are no other steps to complete.  Thank you for your cooperation and we hope you have a safe and restorative summer!

 

If you DO need to come to campus to remove belongings:

2.  Select an Appointment to remove your belongings before Sunday, June 7:

An appointment will allow you to come to campus to retrieve items during the first Move Out window for Delaware state residents. Appointments will be available on specific days and include time intervals to minimize the number of people being in the same areas of a residence hall at the same time. Due to the current climate around COVID-19, we will be enforcing social distancing through our process and encourage everyone to adhere to the strict appointment time that you choose as well as our recommended guidelines you will find in your confirmation email.

Our Move Out timeslots are in 2 hour increments Tuesday - Sunday and restricted by building and floor to encourage social distancing. For this reason, please arrive on time for your timeslot. You will not have access to your building until your timeslot begins. Timeslots will be enforced by University of Delaware Police Department.  

 

3.  Prepare to return to campus for Move Out:

Please carefully review the guidelines for returning to campus listed below.  Please note the restrictions on guests, social distance measures and additional safety precautions we are taking at this time. 

Due to the COVID19 crisis and statewide health and travel restrictions, the following guidelines are for all students and guests who will return to campus to remove belongings during Move Out 2020. 

We have designed our Move Out process to be contactless. There will not be any face-to-face contact with our staff during your appointment window. Access to the buildings will be automated based on your appointment time and activated using your UD ONEcard.

For any urgent matters, there will be signage in the building providing the contact information for a staff member on call. There will be restrictions on what our staff will be able to assist you with, as support is only available by phone.  Adherence to the guidelines we have provided will be essential for a safe and efficient Move Out for all.

 

Appointments:

Students may only return to campus during their designated appointment. Their building access will only be available during their selected appointment window. There will be no way to extend a student’s access beyond their scheduled appointment time.

Appointments have been organized to maximize social distancing. This precludes students from the same floors to select the same window of time. We encourage roommates to avoid selecting back-to-back appointment times to allow for custodial staff to disinfect public spaces, door handles, etc.

 

Moving Assistance:

Students may be escorted by a maximum of 2 guests to help them remove belongings (who are not displaying any COVID19 symptoms).

UD moving carts will NOT be available. Students should bring any equipment they need to remove their belongings.  Dumpsters will be readily available for disposal of any unwanted items.

 

Pre-Arrival Health Assessment:

Students and guests must complete and continue to monitor a health assessment. Only students and guests who qualify based on this screening may come to campus.

1.     Take your temperature. If your temperature is over 99.4F

o If YES student/guest should consult medical professionals; they may not come to campus

o if NO then proceed to #2

2.     Do you have symptoms of respiratory infection (fever, cough, shortness of breath, or muscle aches)? 

o If YES, or student/guest is otherwise symptomatic and considered at risk for COVID-19 exposure, they may not come to campus.

o If NO, proceed to #3 

3.     Have you been in close contact (e.g., within 6 feet for more than a few minutes) with a person with confirmed COVID-19 infection?

o   If YES, student/guest may not come to campus. They will be invited to campus at a later date to remove belongings.

o   If NO, student/guest may proceed to campus. 

 

Social Distancing and Protective Gear:

In accordance with State of Delaware’s Emergency Declarations (link) students and guests must wear face coverings at all times including parking lots, hallways, and student rooms. Coverings can be regulatory masks or scarves/bandanas but must cover nose and mouth;

 

Students and guests should remain at least 6 feet from any other individuals in the building (custodial staff, UDPD, other students, etc.);

 

Only one student with their two helpers may ride in elevator at a time;

 

Doors will be marked for entrance and exits, and directive signs will note walk-way direction to minimize groups crossing paths.

Items to Bring with you to Move Out:

It is important to stick to your designated 2-hour Move Out window. Therefore we ask all students be prepared for their Move Out with the following items:

 

·      A State Identification Card

·      Your UDID

·      Your Room Key

·      Face Covering (worn at all times while on UD Campus)

·      Any equipment needed to move your belongings (Carts will NOT be available)

·      Moving Equipment (boxes, bags, luggage, etc.)

·      Trash bags (dumpsters will be available on all parts of campus for trash)

 

At the conclusion of your appointment:

 

Return your Keys:

Please return your keys. There will be signs directing you on how to do so in your building.

 

Complete the Electronic Check Out:

You will receive an email directing you back to the “Electronic Check Out” form after your appointment is over. Please complete this final step to close out your housing completely.

 

Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility! We hope you have a safe and restorative summer!

We recognize that some of our students may not be able to return to campus for a variety of reasons. RLH has another option to assist our students in coordinating their Move Out.


Students can designate someone to move out for them during their appointment time. In the Spring MoveOut 2020 form students will be asked if they would like to designate someone else to complete their move out. This person can be UD staff or student, or a family member/friend. Professional moving companies cannot be proxies (they must be escorted by a student or proxy).


Proxies must adhere to all of the guidelines outlined in this Move Out Guide.

Parking Regulations

Vehicles are permitted to load belongings in driveways adjacent to residence halls for up to 30 minutes when students move in and out of the residence halls.

Vehicles are not permitted to park in fire lanes.  If you must be in a fire lane or driveway, a licensed driver is required to stay with the vehicle at all times. 

Each vehicle must be attended by a person who can move it immediately in the event of an emergency; any unattended vehicle will be towed at the owner's expense. 

Handicap parking spaces are enforced at all times.

Parking Services supervises and directs parking when it is for the purpose of loading student possessions during the change of semesters.

Contact Parking Services at (302) 831-1184 if you have additional questions about traffic or parking.
