Frequently Asked Questions

What is the move-out day process?
  • Your selected time is the FINAL check-out time, so plan to be ready to lock your room and leave during the window you have signed up for. Card access to your building will be turned on four hours in advance of your check-out time to allow you the time to pack and move.
  • Park your vehicle in any available parking lot. Do NOT park in fire lanes. Do NOT park in loading zones, unless actively loading your vehicle.
  • A Housing & Residential Life staff member will meet you at your room at your chosen time. At that time, the staff member will conduct a visual room inspection, lock the room, and collect your key. That will be your official check-out from your room.
What other items should I be prepared for before returning to campus for move out?
  • Anyone who is sick, exhibiting symptoms or has been instructed to self-quarantine should NOT return to campus.
  • Housing and Residential Life staff will NOT be able to touch student belongings or assist with moving items.
  • Assistive equipment (dollies, carts, etc.) will NOT be available. You are welcome to bring your own to use.
  • Student Life Building Services team members will be present to regularly clean and disinfect public spaces.
  • Residents will NOT be expected to unloft or adjust the frame height of beds.
  • Residents should refrain from removing adhesive items attached to walls.
  • Residents will be expected to remove ALL trash and complete basic room cleaning (sweeping, wiping down visible grime, etc.) with their own tools, but will not be expected to fully cleanse and disinfect the room.
  • Staff members have already visited and checked rooms for visible damage. Rooms with visible damage on precheck will be checked out with full paperwork documentation.
  • Boxes will be available in the building lobby to collect items from Dining Services (trays, utensils, etc.).
  • Boxes will be available to collect any nonperishable food donations for Jack's Cupboard.
  • Please complete other tasks across campus while you are here. See details below in the "What should I do with other items ..." question.
How do I get my mail and packages?

Packages for students checking out during Phase II or "Second Chance" Move-Out (April 15 - May 8) will be brought to them at the check-out time for which they have signed up. If you have a critical package that you need to access prior to your check-out time, please contact SDSU.reslife@sdstate.edu indicating the nature of your package.

Students are encouraged to check their residence hall mailboxes when they check out.

I've been staying on campus for the extended spring break. Do I have to move out?

No, if you were approved to stay on campus prior to March 24, 2020, then you will remain approved to stay on campus throughout the remainder of the semester, to May 8. After our main phase move-out process we may ask students who remain living on campus to consolidate into one location. We will know more details if that process would occur after April 9.

What should I do with other items I have to return or pick up at other academic departments or the library?

Take advantage of the time you will be on campus for checkout and return any equipment or supplies on loan from an academic department.

  • Please contact your academic department or specific faculty member for your class to arrange specifics for returning and collecting items.
  • If you have library materials to return use the outside book depository located at the northeast corner of the library by the parking lot.
  • Return athletic equipment or uniforms.
  • Return Army ROTC equipment to the basement of DePuy Military Hall (available 9 a.m.-4 p.m.).
  • Return or collect items from your campus workplace.
  • School of Performing Arts students will have locker access (individual communication to come from ensemble leaders, etc.).
  • School of Design students will sign up for times to access studios with faculty and staff.


As this situation has continuously emerging guidance from federal and state authorities, please continue to monitor this page and your email for new guidance, which may alter this schedule.
