Express Check Out
Express Check Out
Housing and Residence Life staff continue to work with campus partners on UTEP's response to COVID-19. Effective immediately, all residents are asked to make arrangements to move out of campus housing by 5:00 p.m. Sunday, March 29, 2020.
Beginning Wednesday March 19, you can check—out at the front desk of your property. Sign-up for a time window of when you will be visiting the front desk to check-out. At that time you are to have an empty, clean apartment that has none of your belongings within. At the desk you will complete a form and turn-in your keys. As a continued health and safety measure no staff member will walk -through your apartment and bedroom at this time.
There will be very few residents who are granted permission to remain on campus. International students whose home country has closed their borders and whose flights have been halted or students who do not have a suitable alternative may be examples of an exception. In these cases students should speak with the Coordinator regarding next steps prior to Thursday, March 26, noon. These students may also be required to relocate to another apartment or property for safety and social distance reasoning.
We’ve received further guidance and will be prorating your housing expenses based on your move-out date. Also know that there will be no contract cancellation fee. Regarding your housing deposits, we are working through how best to process the return of housing deposits for students without a housing application/contract for Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 we will update you soon about next steps.
For storage of your belongings until returning in August, there are several locations within El Paso that have openings including UHaul Storage facilities that is currently offering 30 days free with your UTEP ID.
Any questions can be directed to your Resident Assistant, the staff at our front desks or Coordinator.
