Spring / Summer 2021 Move-Out

Students on main campus (James River Hall, Potomac River Hall, Santoro Hall, Warwick River Hall and York River Hall) are expected to move out within 24 hours after their last spring semester final exam or by noon on Friday, May 7, 2021, whichever is earlier.

On or around April 25, we will send residents a link to register for a move out date and time. You should pack in advance of this date and time as you may not have packing assistance from family members. In order to move out quickly, you may have one helper to provide assistance in moving packed items out of the building and into vehicles. We ask that residents limit the number of helpers who come to campus to no more than two.

Students in 10-month occupancy units (CNU Landing, Monroe, Presidents, Taylor, Tyler, Washington and Wilson) will follow check-out procedures and may depart anytime prior to Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at noon.

Students in 12-month occupancy units (Greek Village, Harrison, Jefferson, Madison and Rappahannock River Hall) will follow check-out procedures and may depart anytime prior to Sunday, July 11 at noon.

Students in 10- or 12-month occupancy units who retain the same room at 100% occupancy into a 12-month occupancy unit (Monroe, Presidents, Rappahannock River Hall, Washington) for the 2021-22 academic year, are not required to move out.
