End of the year Check-out procedures

At the end of the spring semester, residents must vacate their apartment/suite within 24 hours of their last exam or by 10:00 am.  Students who are participating in graduation ceremonies will need to check out by 10:00 am the morning after graduation.

Each resident will need to make arrangements with their RM to have their apartment/suite inspected for damage during the specified checkout hours.  All personal property must be removed prior to the time of inspection.  The resident must take all personal property with them upon their departure.  Any property left for 30 days after vacating the apartment/suite will be considered abandoned and will become the property of USC Aiken.  Items left will be disposed of as the University sees fit.  Failure to remove items from the suite/apartment will result in removal charges and storage fees starting at $20 per item.

During the inspection, the resident will be required to return all keys and equipment that may have been issued to the resident by University Housing.  Keys that are not returned at the time of checkout will result in a lock change fee of $100 and $5 for a mailbox.  Also, failure to complete the checkout processes will result in a minimum of $50 improper check out fee and any charges incurred for the removal of all personal property and possible storage charges.  Final apartment/suite inspections will be conducted by a professional staff member of University Housing.  

Damages outlined in the community guide handbook will be assessed within 30 days after checkout and notice of damage charges will be sent to the residents’ permanent address.  Any damages incurred by residents who will not return to University Housing the following academic year will be taken from the $125 security deposit.  Any remaining amount will be refunded to the resident.  Refunds are processed by USC Aiken and then forwarded to USC Columbia campus for checks to be issued.  This process is timely and can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks.  It is your responsibility to make sure you change your address in Self Service Carolina.
