Vacating Your Apartment
  1. Each occupant is responsible for the entire period designated in the contract and until the apartment is checked out, the keys returned, and separation has been approved. An apartment is not officially vacated until the keys are returned to the Supervisor and the "move-out" forms are signed. Failure to vacate on the designated date shall result in a charge of $30 per day for each day occupant fails to vacate.
  2. Vacating residents are responsible for cleaning the apartment thoroughly. A vacating brochure will be sent to each resident when the University Apartments Office has been notified of a specific move-out date.
  3. One week prior to your move out you must make an appointment with your apartment supervisor to check out of your apartment.
