Residence Hall Year End Closing

The Department of Housing and Residence Life requires that resident students move-out of the residence halls within 24 hours after their last academic commitment is completed at the end of the Spring semester. Residents with concerns about their move-out date should be in touch with their Residence Hall Director as soon as possible. Please be aware that any residents found in violation of any Residence Hall or College policy once classes end will be removed from the residence halls immediately. 

Please note that given the volume of students moving out in May, there is a limited number of bins available at the front desks of Artists' Residence, Tree House, and Smith on a first come, first served basis. We ask that bins not be checked out for more than an hour at a time to allow others to use them. In order to borrow a bin, you must bring a MassArt or government-issued ID. Therefore, in order to help alleviate the stress of moving out, we strongly recommend  bringing a hand truck, dolly, or other assistive devices to streamline the move out process. 

Residents will receive a closing memo from their residence hall director explaining in great detail the process for moving out, including how to sign up for a check-out slot, how to express check-out, and what to expect on the day of check-out. Additionally, meetings will be held in each building every night the first week of May to provide further clarification on the move out process.

Below are the specific closing dates and times for different class years living within the residence halls:

Studio Foundation Students living in Smith Hall, Treehouse, Artists' Residence, or Rodgers Hall must move out 24 hours after their last academic commitment or by 7:00pm on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, whichever comes first. 

Upper-Classmen (sophomores and above) living in Treehouse, Artists' Residence, or Rodgers Hall must move out 24 hours after their last academic commitment or by 7:00pm on Thursday, May 23, 2019, whichever comes first.
