These forms are online at: http://inside.loras.edu/StudentDevelopment/ResidenceLife/Lists/End%20of%20the%20Year%20Stay%20Late/overview.aspx and must be submitted by May 15, 2015. Each student is allowed to submit the request form only once. Once you submit your request form, you will need to contact your Area Coordinator directly if you need to make a change to your information. Please be sure to include all dates you will be remaining on campus – from the date of your departure to the date of your return – so that your access fob can be programmed for your stay.

Please avoid this situation by respecting academic hour guidelines.

Preparing for Checkout!

Residents should complete the all required tasks prior to checking out of their room. Please remember that you may be fined for improper checkout if you fail to complete items on this list. Residents should:

  • Remove all belongings from room and hall
  • Sweep and mop floor (including under bed), and clean hallway outside of room
  • Remove all stickers, sticky tack, tape, from all college property

Beckman Hall Parking Lot (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.) or Rohlman Hall Parking Lot (3 p.m. - 4 p.m.)

All bedlofts will be collected by the bedloft company on Saturday, May 16.

If you are concerned about how to fit your personal items in your room once your loft has been removed, please see the Residence Life Staff in your building for assistance.

Elevators Will Be Turned On May 11!

Residents are able to use the elevator to move out. Please remember that many other people may use the elevator during the days/times people are not moving out. Proper etiquette is to put all belongings by the elevator and when everything is ready to go, then load the elevator. Propping the elevator door can be damaging and will not be permitted. Elevators will be turned on for student use on Monday, May 11. Damage to the elevator may result in the elevator being turned off. Please note that the elevators should not be used to transport bedlofts.

Trash and Recycling

Please be sure to properly dispose of or recycle your trash when checking out of college housing. Large items such as couches, carpets, lumber, etc. should be disposed of in the dumpster provided outside the building. Large items should not be left in hallways, on loading docks, or in bathrooms. Dumpsters for large item disposal will arrive on May 11. Recycling bins are provided in all housing items. If you have a large amount of recycling, please contact your RA for specific instructions for your hall.
