Residence Halls Check Out

On-campus housing:

Beginning Tuesday, March 24, 2020, UNC Asheville will begin its move out process for residential students. Students have been sent an email with a link to a form to complete.

UNC Asheville will be following the social distancing guidelines that have been issued by the CDC and WHO. This means that students will need to sign up for a general timeframe to check out of their residence halls. Students will have a choice between three (3) different timeframes:

Morning (8:00 AM - 12:00 PM)
Afternoon (1:00 PM - 4:00 PM)
Evening (5:00 PM - 8:00 PM)

Students can follow the link to complete a Residence Hall Check Out Request. In addition to timeframes, UNC Asheville is asking that students are allowed to bring only one (1) guest to assist in the check out procedure, as this will also aid in following the social distancing guidelines previously mentioned.

Once you have collected all of your belongings from your room, please visit the Mountain Suites, located in Highsmith Student Union, to turn in your room key and complete the checkout process.

We understand that some students may not be able to retrieve their items at all due to extenuating circumstances. If you are unable to retrieve your items, please complete an Unable To Retrieve Items Request that can be found here. Please understand that we will respond to your request as soon as our office is able as we are continuing to navigate this situation.

For those students who already moved all of their belongings out of their residence hall, we do ask you to mail your key back to our office. To ensure your key is received, please follow these steps:

  1. Tape your key on an index card/piece of paper.
  2. Write your: Name, Residence Hall, Room Number, University ID Number, and UNCA email address on the index card/piece of paper.
  3. Address the envelope to the following address:

  1. Tape the envelope shut to ensure it is sealed.
  2. Place your envelope in the mailbox.
