Move-Out Information for Students & Families

Just like the move-in process, we want to make your move-out process as smooth as possible. In most cases, you must be completely moved out of your room and complete the checkout process prior to noon on the final day of your housing contract. Late stay options may be available at an extra cost and must be approved. Check your Purdue email and direct questions to your hall front desk or resident assistant (RA).

Express check out procedures

  • Pick up the "express check out envelope" at your hall's main office.
  • Do not sign up with your RA for a time slot.
  • Drop completed the "express check out envelope" and key at your hall's drop-off location after removing your belongings and cleaning your room.
  • The room must be in the same condition it was when resident moved in.
  • Lost key (not turned in at check out): $50 per lost key to replace the lock.
  • Residents will be billed for any damages that have occurred as determined by a university facilities team inspection.

Moving Company/Storage

If you are using a moving company to move and/or store your belongings you must be here to escort them when they come to pick up your items. If you have already left campus and/or are unavailable to escort them, you must designate another resident of this community (hall/apartment) to be an escort for you in your absence. You need to inform the hall front office/Purdue Village Administration Center (for apartment residents other than Hilltop) know who that person (your escort) is ahead of time in writing (send an email to the hall/community center email inbox or given to the front office in writing ahead of time).

It must include:

  • Student (your) name, room number and cell phone number
  • Escort name, room number and cell phone number
  • Date/Time of scheduled pick up
  • Name of company picking up

Improper Checkout/Items Left Behind

Please note, you will be charged $32 per night for each night that your items are left behind after the date of the end of your contract. In addition, if you do not designate an escort, you will be charged a $50 improper checkout fee.

Unused Dining Dollars

Any unused dining dollars will expire at the end of your housing contract.

Mail Delivery/ Forwarding

Be sure to change your forwarding address in My Purdue.

First Class mail will be forwarded. Most hall mail rooms will be closed for the summer. Packages will be returned.

Please do not order items that cannot be delivered before the end of your contract date.
