Room Move Information

If you are staying on-campus for the summer period or have an approved contract extension for 2020, please remain in your room until you receive further information regarding your move. Not everyone on an extended contract will be required to move rooms, but some residents may be required to.

To make the process easy for our maintenance team and you, please come and collect an ‘I’m still here’ door hanger to hook on your current apartment/ room door handle, and a sheet of ‘keep me’ stickers to place on the room items you plan to hold onto for your Summer Stay/Extended Stay.

We recommend consolidating your items so it’s clear to our maintenance staff which belongings need to stay. For example: Consolidate your food to one or two fridge shelves, keep utensils to one kitchen drawer and grooming items to one bathroom shelf or box.

You will be notified via email of your new room number and move date closer to the time of the change. For more information about moving out, click here.
