Not Returning for the Spring Semester

If you have requested to cancel your housing for spring, and the cancellation has been approved, you are required to complete the four steps below. Failure to complete any of the steps will result in a minimum improper move-out fee of $100 for each step not completed. Apartment residents may be eligible for a $300 refund if they move out December 17, 2021.

STEP 1: Begin to organize and pack your belongings. Decide when you will move-out. Residents must vacate their room within twenty-four (24) hours of completing their last final exam or by 6:00PM on Friday, December 17, 2021, whichever comes first.

STEP 2: Look around your space. Are you responsible for any damage(s)? If so, you must claim the damage(s) using the online “Damage Responsibility Form.” All residents responsible for damage must complete the form (some damage responsibility may be shared by multiple roommates). Any damage(s) not claimed will be split amongst all roommates.

STEP 3: You must clean and clear your space. DO NOT go to the Area Office until all belongings are removed and your space is clean. You won’t be able to swipe your OneCard/check-out until done.

STEP 4: All students must go to the Area Office to officially check-out, swipe their OneCard and sign the “Move-out Confirmation Form.” 

Guest Access

University policy requires that each student moving into on-campus housing be limited to 2 guests. Guests must be declared using the PreCheck-In form available on your Housing portal. Guests will be permitted access to campus all day and will be able to leave and re-enter through the main gate throughout the day as needed.

Parking

Residents arriving anytime from Jan 6 – Jan 9 may park in general parking spaces. When moving in please make sure you are parked in a marked parking space and that you observe all parking signs and personnel. Parking in red zones, fire-lanes or in any unmarked area is strictly prohibited. 

Important Expectations

Student Housing & University policies may be revised for the Fall 2021 academic year as pandemic conditions evolve. Information regarding these policies will be available through Student Housing communications and on this webpage. The University continues to practice appropriate measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Please keep in mind each person will need to comply with a mask requirement for indoor spaces. Please review the LMU Together webpage for University updates.
