As a resident of the college community, you must abide by all rules and regulations outlined in the Residence Life Policies and Procedures. Be sure to familiarize yourself with proper check-out procedures before leaving for winter and summer breaks, as outlined below.

May 2021 Move-Out

The Move-out Period

The spring 2021 move-out process will take place between Saturday, May 1 through Thursday, May 13 at noon. Halls and apartments will close to all students at noon on May 13 and late departures will not be granted. Although we understand residents may have circumstances that warrant a request to depart later than May 13 at noon, we are not approving late departure requests for the spring 2021 semester. 

The Move-out Process

Specific information about the move-out process will be shared with residents via email by Associate Director Charlene Kilpatrick. Additional information will be displayed in the residential halls in addition to closing meetings by the RLO student leaders. To facilitate the move-out process, the RLO office will be on swipe access for residents with 24/7 access from May 1 through May 13 at noon. Each resident must:

  • Bring their room key(s) to the Residence Life office, deposit it in their assigned key envelope.
  • Sign their card
  • Place the sealed envelope in the lockbox on the wall in the RLO lobby or with the person on duty at the front desk (if checking out during business hours).  

Please note:  Mail keys are not turned into RLO.  Graduating students are to return their mail key to the campus post office and all other students will keep their mail keys over the summer.

Move-out Assistance

Students departing their residential space for spring 2021 may bring up to two assistants to help at move-out. The assistants may only be in the halls/apartments while removing belongings from the room and must leave the halls/apartments once everything is moved out to minimize the amount of non-resident contact. Masks must be worn during move-out at all times. We ask students and families to understand that we continue to work to meet expectations that have allowed us to be residential in the spring and request their continued understanding at this time. Please contact the Residence Life Office by emailing rlo@davidson.edu with any questions.
