Moving Carts

Residents may borrow moving carts from the lobby of their building on an honor system. Residents will be billed for unreturned or damaged moving carts. 

Moving Assistance

Professional moving assistance is NOT available when moving out. Beginning Friday, June 4, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m., residents will have the option of issuing visitor wristbands to up to two (2) visitors (parents or guardians only) who are actively involved in their move-out. The wristband will allow your parents/guardians to come in and out without needing to be signed in and out each time. All parents/guardians are required to show a valid state- or government-issued ID and have a resident present before being issued a wristband. This option may only be used once by each resident.

Parking Information

Issued visitor wristbands also include one day of complimentary on-campus parking in the Sheffield Avenue parking garage, starting Friday, June 4, 2021, through Saturday, June 12, 2021. Only pre-approved seniors are allowed to move-out and access free garage parking as late as Sunday, June 13, 2021. There are certain street locations that have free parking as well. Please be mindful of city metering, tow zones, no-parking areas and street signage. There is no parking available for trailers on university property.​

Lincoln Park Meal Plan

After Friday, June 11, 2021, any balance remaining on your meal plan will be forfeited and is not refundable.

Common Damages & Cleaning Charges

Each room will be inspected by staff for damages and cleaning charges. If damages or cleaning issues are found, a fee will be assessed and an email will be sent to the email address you have listed in Campus Connect by June 25, 2021.
