Move Out Information

Get Your Move On

We're here to help you prepare for your move.

As school winds down, you're probably busy with finals and other activities. But it's still important to prepare for moving out to remove stress and ensure a smooth transition. We encourage you to think about starting to take some items home throughout the spring semester to make move out smoother.

Cleaning supplies


Your RM will hold a meeting before semester break and before the end-of-the-year closing to inform you of what needs to be done. You will also receive information via email.

At the end of the year, in order to avoid cleaning charges, you will need to move your things out of your space and clean your space thoroughly. Damages and repairs not related to normal wear and tear will be billed to the resident. Contact Housing and Residential Education at 920-465-2040 for more information about reporting damages prior to check-out.

In spring, all residents must officially check out through one of the two options below. You will complete the move out process after all of your belongings have been moved out of the room and you have cleaned. When you check-out, your building access will end. Housing personnel will inspect your room after check-out to assess cleanliness and needed repairs.

Students have two options to complete a check out when departing university housing or changing rooms/apartments. Both check out options can be found on UW-Green Bay Housing Hub under the Check-Out section. If a student needs computer access, there are kiosk computers available in the Community Center, if needed. To make sure your room is ready to check out you can look over the check out cleaning checklist. Students failing to follow the check in or check out procedures will be charged a $50 fee. Below you will find more information regarding each option.

Traditional Check Out

A Traditional Check Out will require students to schedule an appointment with an Resident Mentor (RM) to complete their check out process. A list of RM contact information will be provided after selecting the Traditional Check Out option on UW-Green Bay Housing Hub. Students must schedule the appointment a minimum of 24 hours in advance so please plan ahead. The student checking out must be present at the time of the appointment, have their belongings moved out and their room/apartment cleaned to avoid an improper check out charge. Building access will be removed at 10 p.m. the evening of the check out appointment.

Check-out Appointment: Students are strongly encouraged to schedule a check out appointment with their Resident Mentor (RM), but appointments can be scheduled with any RM in the building if a specific time is not available with the designated RM.

Express Check Out

Express Check Out allows a student to check out completely online at any time without signing up for an appointment with a Resident Mentor (RM). Access to the building will be removed immediately after the Express Check Out is completed. It is the student’s responsibility to clean the room/apartment, remove belongings and trash, and report any damages that have occurred while living in the room/apartment. The student’s room/apartment will be inspected after move out has occurred, and charges will be assessed for any damages, missing items, and/or cleaning charges will be applied, if applicable. Damages, missing items, and/or cleaning that no one claims responsibility for will be divided equally among those living in the room/apartment.

Right to Appeal Damages: Students who select Express Check Out waive the right to appeal charges or be present during the departure inspection process.
