Tips for a Successful Move-Out
Dan Morrison Director of Residence Life, Department of HousingRemember August? It was hot and you likely moved your student into Tech Housing along with several hundred other families. Well, it may not be as hot, but most everything else will be the same during May move-out –including the parking lot congestion, the boxes of stuff, and the lack of elevators!And just like move-in during the fall, move-out requires some planning and preparation. Here are a few suggestions from Residence Life to help make this process as smooth as possible for you and your student:Familiarize yourself and your student with the housing deadlines and timelines. These can be found at www.housing.gatech.edu – click on Spring 2012 Closing Information.
- For students not living on-campus during summer semester, the check-out deadline is 24 hours after their last final exam. This may likely be before the weekend, and we ask you abide by that deadline. It makes everything else go smoothly if everyone doesn’t try to move out at once on Saturday.
- The final deadline for a student to be completely moved out — room cleaned and returned as it was found in August or when student moved in — and checked out by staff is Saturday, May 5, at noon.
- For students who are graduating in May, he or she must be totally moved and checked out by staff by Sunday, May 6, at noon.
- For students staying for summer school, if he or she is staying in the same room occupied during spring semester, there is nothing that needs to be done – so you can relax! If your student is moving to another hall for summer, she or he will need to do so on Sunday, May 6, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. These students will receive correspondence from their hall director if the room will be ready as early as 9 a.m.
- Housing cannot extend these deadlines since our student resident assistants (RAs) will be going home as well. We cannot allow students to stay in an unstaffed building.
