Ready to move out? Here, you'll find the resources and information you need to plan for your move-out day.
Residents who are not participating in Furman's commencement ceremony or taking a May Experience class are expected to check out within 24 hours of their last exam. Graduating seniors will move out the day after Furman's graduation.
Our residence halls will close on May 4. However, graduating seniors may remain until May 7.
Preparing for Move-Out Day
- Damages and lost keys
- Forwarding your mail
- Leaving a vehicle on campus
Students may leave their vehicle on campus by parking in an unreserved space behind McAlister Auditorium. Be sure to provide the Furman University Police Department your name and cell phone number along with the make, model, color and license plate number of your vehicle. When you return to campus and remove your car, contact the University Police at 864.294.2111.
The Housing and Residence Life Office is unable to provide storage options because of summer camps and conferences. However, if you're an international student, the Office of Study Away and International Education provides some options.
Each resident is responsible for completing the steps listed in our move-out checklist. If you fail to complete one of the steps, you may be assessed a fee.
- Remove personal items
Remove all personally owned furnishings and belongings from your room. Our office is not responsible for items left behind. Residents will be charged for the removal of any property.
- Remove trash
Remove trash from your room and transport it to the appropriate dumpster. Do not take the recycling bin provided by the university, or you will be assessed for the cost.
- Remove adhesive products
Remove adhesive products from any surface within the apartment. Be sure to examine and remove residue from the front door, windows, balcony and patio area.
- Clean room
Clean your room or apartment thoroughly. This includes microfridges, suite bathrooms, cabinets and drawers. The walls, ceiling, trim, mini blinds and furnishings should be free of dust and dirt.
- Clean showers
Shower units should be washed and soap scum buildup should be cleaned. We recommend Tilex soap scum remover. Do not use abrasive cleansers on acrylic surfaces.
- Remove temporary fixtures
Temporary fixtures, such as mirrors or shelf lining, should be removed.
- Clean flooring
Carpeted areas should be vacuumed and stain free, while tile floors should be swept and mopped.
- Complete your move out
Lock your room, and take your key to the Resident Assistant Office. A resident assistant will accompany you back to your room or apartment, and will inspect the room for any damages. Once the review is complete, the resident assistant will ask you to sign and date your Room Condition Report.
Appeal Closing Fine
If you want to appeal any portion of the fines made at the end of a term, please complete and submit the form before the required deadline.
