Moving Out

RESIDENTS MUST VACATE by 9:00 am on the day following their last final exam or by 5:00 pm on May 22, 2017, whichever is earlier.

Residents with class on May 22 must register with Residential Life to remain beyond 5:00 pm.

Graduates registered for commencement will be granted an extended stay and will be contacted about special check-out hours. Only those registered for cap and gown will be granted an extended check-out date.


  1. Remove all your belongings from the room and make sure you meet with your RA to schedule the completion of your RCR. Failure to complete your RCR will waive your right to contest any damage charges.
  2. Go to the “Express Check-Out” station located in the lobby of your building.
  3. Swipe your ID OR click on “Check-Out Another Way” (enter last name and date of birth) and follow the prompts. Make sure you click “continue” on the last screen to insure check-out.
  4. Place your key/s/key card (if applicable) in the envelope, fill out the information required on the envelope and drop it into the box (envelopes are located at each station). There is a $50.00 charge for unreturned keys.

You’re done! Keep your ID and remember to check for discount offers to students over the summer!


Rooms must be left in move-in condition (broom swept, drawers wiped clean, floors mopped, etc.). Unwanted items and garbage must be discarded. Apartment residents are responsible for cleaning their refrigerator, stove, kitchen cabinets/sink and bath/shower/bathroom areas.

Where: 27th Street - A dumpster is provided on 27th Street in front of Nagler Hall.
Kaufman: Place large items in floor trash rooms.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOUR ROOM IS NOT left in “move-in condition”, you will be charged a cleaning fee determined by FIT’s maintenance department. If items are left in rooms after you have checked out, you may be charged for summer housing.


Residents who live within driving distance should consider moving their possessions on the weekends of May 6 and/or May 13. If you are not within driving distance, consider shipping your belongings home.

DO NOT LEAVE CARS UNATTENDED. Please note that NYC will tow and ticket unattended cars on the street.

Forward Your Mail

Two weeks prior to moving, contact individuals, companies, and subscriptions with your forwarding address. Supply the mailroom with enough forwarding labels (8 ½ x 11 sheet) to last for 30 days. Once labels are used, all mail will be returned to sender. Mail is forwarded for a maximum of 30 days.


Remember: Meal plan and declining dollars must be used or they will be lost. Plan accordingly. Use this opportunity to stock up on items you can use during the summer or treat friends, but use it up!
