Spring Move Out

College Houses Close

Undergraduate move-out for non-graduating seniors is Wednesday, May 15 at 5 pm. Non-graduating undergraduate students must move out of their College House by 5 pm on that day.

Seniors graduating in May or August 2024 will automatically receive an extension to move-out on Tuesday, May 21 at noon. 

Guest Passes

You will be able to sign up your guests via the RHS Portal. This process will generate a mobile guest pass, which each guest must show – in addition to photo ID – to the Allied Guard at the turnstile of the residential building. This is the same process you use during the academic year.

Summer Storage

Residential Services does not provide storage but works with College Butler to provide storage options to Penn students. If you are in need of summer storage, please contact College Butler via their website

Moving Out

May 1-10: 

On these dates, you will be able to sign out a cart for one hour to help with your move. The streets will not be posted for parking and there will not be staff available to assist with parking and moving items down steps in selected buildings. 

May 11-15: 

You will be able to sign out a cart from the Info Center or a tent for one hour to help with your move. If you are moving out between 8 am and 5 pm, parking will be reserved around residential buildings and staff will be on the street to help with parking.  Staff will also be available to help residents move items down steps at Du Bois, Gregory, and the Quad and up steps on the south side of the 1st floor of Hill. If you are moving out outside of the 8 am to 5 pm timeframe, there will not be moving help and you will need to work out your own parking. 

May 20-21 (Graduating Residents only):

Seniors graduating in May or August 2024 will automatically receive an extension to move-out on May 20 or 21. You will be able to sign out a cart for one hours to help with your move. For check-outs occurring between 8 am and 12 pm, parking will be reserved around residential buildings and staff will be on the street to help with parking.   

Checking Out

Once you have removed all of your belongings from your room, made one FINAL check of closets, drawers, cabinets, back of doors, and locked your door (bedroom and suite/apartment) upon exiting your room, you must finalize your check out via our mobile self-check out tool via the RHS Portal. Residents will be able to use this tool starting on May 4.
