All non-seniors and/or students not required to stay on campus for graduation activities must move out of their room or apartment by Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 12:00 noon. Students approved to remain for Senior Week must vacate their housing assignment by Sunday, May 19, 2019 at 6pm.
Resident Assistants will hold floor meetings to review University Check-Out procedures.
Before Leaving Your Room/Apartment:
When you have checked your room/apartment and are ready to depart, review the Express Check-Out Form posted beside your room/apartment door.
All University furnishings present in your room/apartment at the time of check in must be in your room/apartment when you depart. Replacement costs will be assessed for all missing furniture. All furnishings must be returned to their original positions in your room/apartment. If you have "unbunked" your beds, please do not "rebunk" them. "Rebunking" beds without the appropriate hardware has resulted in a number of injuries to custodial and maintenance personnel over the years. Please be considerate of the safety of these individuals.
Furnishings and other items which are the personal property of residents, such as couches, chairs, rugs, and shelves must be removed from your room/apartment prior to departure. Dumpsters will be located near your hall to assist you with the disposal of these items. You will be assessed a labor charge for the removal of all personal items left in your room/apartment. As removal costs for items/trash pushed out into the hallways or left in stairwells will be assessed against all residents of a floor or building, please do not dispose of your items/trash or allow others to dispose of theirs in this fashion. All decorative items such as corkboards, mirrors, shelving, posters, hooks, and contact paper must be removed. Decals, stickers, marks, tape, adhesive, nails, "Stick Up" Air Fresheners and lettering on ceilings, doors, furniture, walls and windows should be cleaned off and/or removed. You will be charged to remove, clean and/or repair damage from these items.
The majority of the most common tasks or repairs assessed are avoidable. Below is a list of the most common items which students are assessed for at the end of the year. All costs are calculated by the Facilities Management Office.
*Please do not attempt to mask damages by attempting to spackle and repaint your room. This often results in having to repaint the entire room and the cost will be assessed to the residents of the room/apartment.
There are a number of ways to avoid being assessed floor/wing and common area damage. • If vandalism has occurred on your floor or within your building and you know who is responsible, we encourage you to approach the individual(s) and ask them to come forward. If this is not possible, please report the situation to your RA. These actions must be taken prior to the close of school and the departure of residents, so issues can be appropriately resolved while students are present.
Do not throw trash or discard personal belongings (i.e. couches, textbooks, carpet remnants, paper) in the hallways. If excessive trash is found on a wing or hall, the entire floor will be assessed a Custodial Service removal charge.
As required, end-of-year charges for room, floor and common area assessments will be included as a part of a student’s account balance and billed by the Bursar’s Office in late June. Residence Life will post on-line statements itemizing specific charges for each student and/or building in late June. You can view these damage statements through the Villanova Housing Web Page - https://housing.villanova.edu.
