Christmas break

Students not returning as a student for the winter semester must contact Nate Wright, Residence Life Coordinator to arrange a move-out date before the Christmas break.

Tower residence Christmas eco-checkouts

All tower residents are required to complete an eco-checkout before leaving for Christmas break. The tower residence is closed for Christmas break, and students will not have access to the residence. All tower residents must leave within 24 hours of their last exam or by noon on the day following the end of the exam period (whichever comes first).

Eco-checkouts are an opportunity for residents to ensure their rooms are fulfilling community cleanliness standards and are prepared for an extended absence. Eco-checkouts are completed by both roommates, with the last roommate to leave being responsible for the final check. It is up to each roommate to ensure their space is prepared for their absence.

The following should be checked during an eco-checkout:

  • Windows closed
  • Lights off
  • Fan off
  • Appliances unplugged
  • Taps not dripping/toilets not running
  • Room cleaned
  • Garbage emptied/recyclables removed
  • Fridge cleared of perishables

All dripping taps, running toilets, and rattling fans should be reported to facilities at before the eco-checkout occurs. Students returning to residence for the winter semester do not need to remove their belongings for Christmas break.

Any questions can be directed to a residence assistant or Nate Wright, Residence Life Coordinator.

Residence deposit deadline 

Residence deposits are due June 15, 2020 to guarantee a spot in residence for the fall semester. Residence deposits are $500 and non-refundable. See residence applications and deposits for more information.

Reading week

From February 17-21, 2020, no classes are held for a spring reading week. Students are welcome to remain in residence during the break.

Moving out of residence

Students moving out of residence are required to do a formal check out within 24 hours of finishing their last exam in the winter semester. Students should consult their exam schedule when planning to move out.

Residents who are not returning as students for the winter semester must contact Nate Wright, Residence Life Coordinator as early as possible to make a formal checkout appointment before the Christmas break. The requirements for the move-out process are the same for residents who leave King's after the fall semester.

Moving out processPDF of full move out process

Students moving out of residence are required to do a formal check out with a Residence Life team member. This check compares the recorded condition of your room at move-in to the condition at move-out. Each roommate does their own check out with a residence team member, with charges in common areas split between all roommates.

Checkouts consist of inspecting the room for damages and cleanliness. At this point, students must be ready to return their room key. Students are charged for any damages, cleaning requirements, and missing items (including a lost key). All belongings must be removed from the room at the time of check out.

When preparing for check out, students must leave enough time for cleaning once their belongings are moved out. Use the cleaning checklist to make sure you don't miss anything. Residence staff will complete your electronic check out during your check out appointment. A copy of the checkout report will be emailed to you immediately after submitting the report.

Contact Nate Wright, Residence Life Coordinator with any questions about the move out process.
