Fall Opening

Fall Closing (Winter Break)

Residence Halls (Except for Potomac Hall and 9-month Harbor floors) close Wednesday, December 19th @ 8 pm.

Checkout
In order to support an environment conducive to study and to stagger check out times across the week, we ask students to move-out of their rooms within 24 hours after their last final or no later than 8 p.m. on December 19th.

Staff will provide students with a closing check list. RAs will inspect rooms after we close on 12/19.
Sample closing check list here.

Remember students who are not returning to the same space or who are leaving UMBC or UMBC Housing should schedule an appointment with the RA at least 48 hours before they wish to check out. At this appointment, the RA inspects room damages, takes room key and resident ID. Failure to make and keep a scheduled check out appointment is one of the more expensive check out charges ($50.00). Key and ID charges add up, too. If you plan NOT to return to UMBC or UMBC Housing remember that you'll need to file a PETITION with Residential Life to request release from housing license. Please stop by the Residential Life Office to pick up a form Erickson Hall 184 from 8:30AM-4:30PM.
