Are you planning on moving out of your space on campus? Please be sure to follow these steps in their entirety to ensure you are complying with the terms and conditions of your contract. Orchard Court residents wishing to move out should go to their MyUHDS page and fill out a Family Housing Notice of Intent to Vacate. If you have any questions about the process, please go to your nearest Service Center or email UHDS.
Before you move out
Steps to a Clean Room
Remember: Failure to follow all of the proper checkout procedures may result in an improper checkout fee of $50.00 or a cleaning fee up to $250.
What if my roommate is staying in the room?
Complete the cleaning process for your side of the room. UHDS staff will still check the garbage can, window, and floor, to ensure cleanliness, so it is important to make sure that these common spaces are clean upon your check-out.
What happens to my mail when I checkout?
Mail is forwarded for up to 3 months after your checkout date. After 3 months your mail will be returned to sender, so please update your address with the various companies and people from whom you receive mail. Be sure to update your address at Student Online Services to where you will be receiving mail as soon as you know your new address.
Will I be charged a cancellation fee?
A cancellation fee is assessed if you will remain a student at Oregon State University. Please refer to the Housing and Dining Contract for specific information on cancellation fee criteria.
What will the charge be for cancelling my contract?
The cancellation fee is the full remaining Contract Term after receipt of Cancellation. The fee will be assessed for the remaining Contract Term excluding unused Dining Dollars. If, at the start of Winter or Spring term, UHDS housing is oversubscribed and students who desire rooms are housed in temporary housing, the previously cancelling student will be refunded the amount of the Contract Term minus the amount for the academic term(s) in which UHDS is oversubscribed and over capacity.
What if I don’t agree with a UHDS charge on my account?
If you disagree with any of the fees that you have been assessed, please go to MyUHDS and follow the instructions provided through the ‘Petition of Financial Appeals’ link to submit a Petition of Financial Appeal.
