Spring 2020 Housing Move-Out Information For Residents Sheltering Off Campus That Have Personal Belongings On Campus
On Thursday, April 23, Governor Pritzker extended the stay-at-home order for the state of Illinois through May 30. This included a provision for allowing students means to move out of their on-campus residence hall. Part of that order also stipulates that all persons must continue to follow CDC guidelines as it pertains to social distancing, as well as additional directives from the state of Illinois such as the use of face coverings/masks while in public (after May 1).
OPTIONS FOR MOVE OUT
- Option 1
- We have identified a time-frame for residents that have chosen to depart Campus Housing and shelter off campus during the state of Illinois stay-at-home order to return and collect personal belongings. That time-frame is May 16 - May 31. If you wish to collect your personal belongings, you will need to sign up for a check-out time below.
- Option 2
- Campus Housing has an identified vendor we coordinate with called Dorm Room Movers. We work with Dorm Room Movers to allow access to rooms for those that have hired their services in order to pack your items for storage and shipping without you present. This is a paid service which students will contract directly with Dorm Room Movers. More information is listed below.
- Option 3
- Abandon your personal belongings, mail your room key to Campus Housing (details here), and complete your check-out remotely. Personal belongings will then be disposed of by Campus Housing. To select this option, you must submit your intent to have personal belongings disposed of here.
