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 should make arrangements with their Resident Mentor 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 for a room key and $5 for a mailbox key.  Failure to complete the checkout processes will result in a minimum of $50 improper checkout 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 will be assessed within 30 days after checkout, and the notice of damage charges will be sent to the residents’ permanent address.  Any damages incurred by residents who do not return to University Housing for 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 the USC Columbia campus for checks to be issued.  This is process can take up to 6 weeks.  It is your responsibility to update your mailing address in Self Services Carolina (SSC).  Please make sure you that you update your mailing address in SSC, so that you can receive your refund check.
