Mid-Semester Move-Out

Students typically move-out of their room mid-semester for two reasons:

  • Room Change - If you are participating in the room change process, please follow specific instructions provided to you by the Area Assistant Director staff and/or Housing Operations staff.
  • Withdrawal/Leave of absence/Transferring - Students who are withdrawing or taking a leave of absence must officially do so through the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies

To properly check-out of your Residence Hall, you must completely remove all belongings from your room and return your key to the Student Life office in Seton Court, 08-B. Failure to turn in your key will result in a re-key of the room and a $100 re-key fee.

Undergraduate Move-Out

All non-seniors need to check-out of their room within 24 hours of their last exam or by 3pm on undergraduate move-out day, whichever comes first.  NO EXCEPTIONS!  Check-out for non-senior students can be done in two ways:

  • You can either schedule a traditional check-out with your RA (it must be scheduled 24 hours in advance)
  • You can do an express check-out and return to your key to the mailbox outside of your Residence Hall’s Area Office. 

Common Move-Out Fees

  • Re-key (for lost or non-returned key): $100
  • Improper check-out: $50
  • Check-out after final closing deadline: $100/hr
  • Cleaning: Varies by specific condition of room
  • Damages: Varies

More specific information about move-out is emailed to students’ Loyola email prior to move-out. This will include any area specific information.

Graduating Senior Move-Out

The residence halls close promptly at 8 p.m. on Graduation Day for seniors. All residents will be expected to remove themselves and their belongings from their room (and building) by this time. No entry will be allowed after 8pm on this day.  No exceptions. You will be charged $100 per hour after 8pm if you do not leave by the closing deadline.
Student life strongly encourages residents to move out prior to graduation.  Please utilize Senior Week to pack and prepare for move-out. We want you to be able to enjoy graduation day with your family, and you can if you take some time during senior week to clean, pack, and prepare for closing.  In past years, residents who have moved out Friday night and returned their keys before graduation on Saturday have had a relaxing and celebratory graduation day.  We HIGHLY encourage you to take this opportunity so that you can celebrate without the stress of moving out.

Common Move-Out Fees

  • Re-key (for lost or non-returned key): $100
