Spring Closing Information

In preparation for the Spring 2015 Closing, the Offices of Housing & Residence Life wish to provide you with some helpful information which will help minimize stress as you prepare to move-out of the residence halls at Santa Clara University! 

All residence halls (including the University Villas) close on Thursday,  June 11, 2015 at 9:00PM! Please take note of this date & time as failure to checkout of your room by 9:00PM will result in an automatic charge of $25.00 per 15 minutes you are LATE moving out!

Watch the "How to Checkout" video! 

Watch the training video that all Community Facilitators & Neighborhood Representatives use to learn how to conduct checkouts. Ensure you know everything the CFs and NRs are looking for during a checkout to avoid unnecessary penalties and damage charges!

Review and understand the Closing Checklist!

Make sure to follow all of the procedures and expectations listed on the Closing Checklist (which can be found below)! A Closing Checklist will be placed on your room or apartment door prior to move-out.

Reconfigure furniture before quiet hours begin.

Beds should be debunked and at their original height/setting to avoid a $200 fee. Your room must be left the same configuration as you found it when you arrived.

Use all of your Resident Dining Meal Plan Points!

Resident Dining Meal Points do not rollover from Spring 2015 to Fall 2015. The Spring 2015 Resident Dining Plan ends on Saturday, June 13!

Thoroughly clean your room or apartment.

All rooms, sinks mirrors and appliances (vacuum, dust, etc). Remove all trash to large dumpsters. 

Forward your mail!

Before you depart campus, make sure to forward your mail by updating your address via eCampus!

Discuss any room damage with your roommate(s).

Room damages are automatically divided between roommates unless you fill out a Roommate Responsibility Agreement form. This form allows each roommate to specify which damages are his/her responsibility. Discuss damages now and don't assume that your roommate will notify the Community Facilitator or Neighborhood Representative during check-out.

Summer Storage?

Bronco Storage makes summer storage simple as students don't have to coordinate the transportation of their belongings off-campus or deal with the hassle of trying to secure a space at a local storage location. Bronco Storage is so easy that all students need to do is make a reservation online, pack their items in the free boxes provided by Bronco Storage and drop off the boxes at an on-campus location. Students also have the option to have their packed boxes picked up at their room. The belongings are safely stored for the entire summer and even (for students studying abroad) through Fall quarter! Reserve by June 5th and Save $50!! Learn more about Bronco Student Services Summer Storage!

Retrieve all items left on campus (i.e. bike, clothes, supplies).


Donate any usable clothing items.

Food donations will also be accepted at the Library and Cellar Market in Benson.


Every resident must check-out. Failure to make and keep your appointment will result in a $25 improper check-out fee. Checkouts will not begin until all personal belongings are removed from the building. Failure to check-out on Thursday, June 11, 2015 for all campus residence halls (including University Villas) may result in a $25 per 15 minute late charge.
