At your registered check-out time, please remove all personal belongings and tidy/clean the space before departing.  A key envelope will be provided in advance in which to return your room key(s) to a key drop box around campus. 

A non-refundable $100 fee will be assessed for keys not returned by June 1st in addition to the standard lock change charge. Checkpoints should NOT be returned unless you are  transferring or otherwise leaving the College permanently.
