News from Meredith Residence Life

It’s never too early to think about the end of the semester! It is important that all residents make their move out plans before the last minute. Below is some helpful information for parents to know about the end of the semester, move-out and more.

End of the Semester Closing
Residents will be receiving move-out and end of the semester information prior to Easter break.

For residents in Vann, Stringfield, Faircloth and Brewer, if they have lofted, bunked, or otherwise repositioned their bedsprings on the end and foot boards, they need to re-set their beds to the sixth rung from the bottom. This is required to be done by Reading Day so that when the resident is ready to check out after finals, she does not have to worry about re-setting her bed to the proper height. Each resident who has lofted her bed is responsible for taking it down.

Other tips for move out include beginning to recycle items such as old notebooks and sorting items that can be donated. The campus re-use area, Daisy Trade, is primarily stocked with clothing, books, and other items that are donated during move-out. Complete information will be provided to students prior to the end of the semester.

Move-out schedule
The last scheduled final is on Thursday, May 7. All residents are encouraged to move out of their residence hall room within 24 hours of their last exam. This allows residents who have finals later in the week to study and not be distracted by residents who are finished with finals.

Freshman deadline for moving out is Friday, May 8 at 2 p.m.

Upperclass residents who are not participating in graduation (Chorale, Orchestra, etc.) should be moved out by Saturday, May 9 at 2 p.m.

Seniors in the residence halls and residents participating in graduation should be moved out by Sunday, May 10 at 12 p.m. when the residence halls close for the semester.

Seniors in the Oaks will have specific move-out information provided in the next few weeks. The last day to move out of the Oaks as a graduating senior is May 15.

Oaks Summer Billing Reminder
Residents of the Oaks who are not graduating are responsible for their summer rent as the Rental Agreement is for 12 months. There are three billing cycles for the Oaks: Fall, Spring, and Summer. The summer rent bills will be sent to residents in April and the full summer rent amount is due by June 1.
