OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Express Check-Out Option: If you do not want to wait/sign up for a RA to check you out, you may do an Express Check Out. Please note that by selecting the Express Check Out option, you will forfeit your ability to appeal any charges found in your room. If interested, please go to the Information Desk to sign the Express Check Out Form. At that time you will need to turn in all your room/suite keys to the Receptionist. You will not be allowed back in your room after that point. PLEASE NOTE: This is the only option available to students who are checking out between 10 P.M. and 8 A.M. It will be at the discretion of your RA whether they will make an exception and conduct a traditional Check-Out during those times.
Summer Housing Contract: Summer contracts are currently available and can be completed via your myWSU portal. Summer Term runs from Saturday, May 13th - Monday, August 1st. Students needing to stay for the Intersession (August 1st- August 18th) would also need to fill out an Intersession contract.
Parking During Check-outs: Parents or those assisting students with the move-out process can park in the Shocker Hall residential parking lot (Orange Lot #5) or the Fairmount residential parking lot (Brown Lot #22) between Friday, May 5th and Saturday, May 13th. No tickets will be issued during this time. Once the student is packed up and has their moving boxes loaded and moved outside, the student or parent may go retrieve their vehicle and park in the Morrison reserved lot (Red Lot #8) or the Shocker Hall loading zone. Each student will be issued up to 2 parking forms (one for each vehicle) to place on their front dashboard while they are loading the belongings into the vehicles. This form allows students and parents to stay parked in the Red lot for 30 minutes. Housing staff will be on-site at the Red lot to issue parking forms and assist with watching moving boxes while people retrieve their vehicles. For a map of campus parking, click HERE.
Dining Information: Shocker Dining closes May 12th after Late Night and will not reopen for summer until May 30th. Remember, Shocker Dollars do not carry over from Spring semester to Summer. Use your Shocker Dollars now- they expire on May 12th! The GroundHouse will be open limited hours over the summer, opening at 5PM and closing at 10PM between the days of May 16th and August 16th.
Mail: Mail will continue be placed in mailboxes through your check-out date. You should fill out a Forwarding Address form online prior to or at the time you sign up for your Check-Out. We recommend changing your address with the companies that send mail to you to ensure you continue to receive it after Move-Out. We also recommend you change your address on your myWSU account. This change will ensure all mail sent by the university will be directed to your new address effective immediately. NOTE: If you do not fill out a forwarding address card, all mail you receive will be returned to sender.
Cleaning: To avoid a minimum of a 3 hour cleaning charge ($90), please take advantage of the cleaning kits available at the Information Desk. These kits include sprays to clean your room and bathroom. The Information Desk also has a vacuum cleaner for your carpet. You may check out any of these cleaning items with your Shocker ID.a valid state issued ID. There are dumpsters outside of Fairmount Towers and Shocker Hall to allow for the disposal of larger items. Please take ALL of your trash to the appropriate receptacles.
Quiet Hours and Policy Violations: Quiet Hours will begin at 10:00pm on Sunday, April 30th and run through 12:00pm on Saturday, May 13th. During this period, no noise should be heard outside of your room and you should control noise in the public and outside areas of the building. Please be considerate of others during this finals period. Failure to honor quiet hours will result in immediate referral to the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) for disciplinary action. All policy violations will be referred to the RLC and will be subject to the conduct process. Please understand that staff will still follow up with all policy violations, even if the students involved do not plan to return to Housing or to the University.
Crime: Now is the time to be especially aware of locking your room! With all the commotion of move-out and finals, it is easy for a thief to steal something and go unnoticed. Please be careful and lock your door whenever you leave the room. Please report any unusual behavior or suspicious people to a RA right away.
Confiscated Items: If you had any prohibited items confiscated by HRL Staff and you are moving out, you will need to pick them up upon your check-out. If these items are not retrieved by the resident, the items will be disposed of as stated in the Housing contract. Additionally, any items left in your room will be kept for 14 days and then promptly disposed of, as is outlined in the Housing and Residence Life Contract.
