College Move-Out Checklist

Gather Packing Supplies

You won’t get far without boxes, packing tape, and other packing supplies.

Review Move Out Procedures

Review the move-out policy and guidelines provided by your college or university, and make sure you understand them. You may need to attend move-out meetings, return certain items, or complete other tasks.

Do a Quick Clean

Clean your dorm room thoroughly before leaving. This includes dusting, vacuuming, wiping surfaces, and taking out the trash. Make sure everything is in order, and you haven’t left any personal items behind.

Return School-Owned Items

Take inventory of all the school property in your room, such as furniture, electronics, keys, and other school-owned items. Return all school-owned items, such as keys, textbooks, library books, and other materials.

Pack Up Your Things

Create a plan for packing and start early to avoid last-minute stress. Make a list of all the items you have, and categorize them into things you will need to bring with you, those to dispose of, donate, or sell.

Do a Final Sweep

Check your mailbox and clear out any mail that may have been sent to you. Double-check your room to ensure that you have packed all your belongings, and there are no forgotten items. Finally, say goodbye to your dorm room!
