Moving Out of UF Housing

Thank you for living with UF Housing. As you prepare to leave your room please follow the steps below to fully move out of your space.

Residents contracted for the spring semester who elect to move out are still responsible for the entire housing agreement and rental balance. 

Step 1: Attend a floor meeting with your Resident Assistant for building-specific move-out instructions.  

Step 2:  Consider keeping your move-out team to a minimum.

Step 3Upon guest arrival, head directly to your room to pack all items. Any property left in your room will be disposed of. 

Step 4Place all trash in exterior dumpsters–trash should not be left in your room or on your floor. If dumpsters are full, place items neatly beside the exterior of the dumpster. Make sure your room is clean, lights are off,  blinds are open and your windows and closed and latched. Collect any packages or mail from your mailbox before turning in your keys.

Step 5: Once ready to leave, visit your area office for your express check-out envelope.  Please complete the label, insert your keys, and return to your area office staff or key dropbox. Log into and update your mailing address. 

After Hours Move Out

If you are leaving after hours, please follow the steps above, and when ready to leave visit your Area Office to return keys.  A key drop box and express check-out envelope will be available at your area office. Complete the information on the envelope, insert keys, and place in the dropbox. You will receive a confirmation email that your move-out has been processed the following business day. For any assistance with your after hour move-out please contact your Resident Assitant on call. 

Requesting Check-Out Extension

If you need a move-out extension, please email by December 8, 2021 at 12 p.m. You will receive a notification of the status of your request by Monday, December 13, 2021.

Staying For Spring

Residents staying in the same room for Spring 2022, need to sign-up with their RA to inform them of the day and time they are leaving. After this, you will need to complete the following steps:

  • Take the items you’ll need while you’re away
  • Empty trash cans and recycling bins
  • Gather all your items from common areas/lounges
  • Clear the bathroom counters
  • Do not unplug your refrigerator
  • Dispose of all perishable food

A collection box is available in your Area Desk for any non-perishable food items you may want to donate to the Field and Fork Pantry.
