END-OF-YEAR CLOSING & MOVE-OUT PROCEDURES
All residence hall students are required to move out at the end of the semester. The halls officially close at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 15.

If you are participating in commencement activities this semester, please contact your assistant/community coordinator for specific instructions.
 
To prepare to move out, Housing and Dining Services recommends the following:
  • Gather packing materials such as boxes, bins, totes, wrapping paper, etc.
  • Take home any larger or un-used items (futons, fridges, storage containers, etc.) before finals week.
  • Identify your finals schedule. Residents should plan to depart no later than 24 hours after their last final.
  • Make plans with family or friends if you need assistance checking out of your room. HDS will allow family or friends to assist residents with the check-out process. All guests must follow the current COVID-19 protocols, including wearing a mask.
  • Have all of your room keys. If you do not have your room key, please stop by the front desk so staff can issue a lock change.
  • Attend your community meeting with building staff.
 
All students will be required to sign up and complete a check-out appointment. At the time of appointment, all of the following must be completed:
  • All furniture and furniture parts must be accounted for in the room. If the beds are lofted, push the desk and dresser underneath.
  • Take all trash and recycling to the outside dumpsters.
  • Completely clean the room including vacuuming, sweeping and wiping all hard surfaces such as drawers, cabinets, dressers and desks.
  • Close all windows.
  • Set the thermostat to “auto.”
  • All personal belongings must be out of the room at time of inspection.
 
Students will go to the front desk at the appointment time to begin the check-out process.
Residents are able to modify their check-out appointment by returning to the link and selecting a new time. Note: Appointments are based upon staff availability and available spaces may change as students sign up.

Any damage, key or improper check-out charges will be applied to the resident’s KSIS account and will be visible on the June bill.
 
Questions about the check-out process may be directed to your assistant/community coordinator.

To help with traffic conditions, HDS recommends the following:
  • Pack all of your items first. Then, once packed, move your vehicle to the front of the building and load all your items.
  • HDS has a limited number of carts to use. We recommend bringing your own cart or dolly.
  • Do NOT park in meter spaces unless you pay the meter. Meter spaces will be enforced during the move-out period. However, you may temporarily park in spaces near your building to load your vehicle.
If you have any questions, please contact the Housing and Dining Services office at 785-532-6453 or housing@k-state.edu.
 
Sincerely,
Housing and Dining Services
