Spring 2020 Intent to Vacate / Express Checkout Process

To: UC Santa Cruz Housing Residents

From: UCSC Student Housing Services

Dear Resident,

As outlined earlier today by Chancellor Larive, remote instruction for lecture and discussion sections, originally announced through April 3, will extend for the entire spring quarter. If you decide to vacate your university housing space and cancel your housing contract for spring quarter, please read the following carefully. Please note that this also applies to students who have already left campus and wish to return to retrieve their belongings and complete the move-out process.

Complete the online Intent to Vacate form here: https://forms.gle/rrUd25b7DVb9oy5P8

If you remove all of your belongings from your housing and return your key by April 5, you will be eligible for a full refund of any housing and dining fees paid for spring quarter. For any student moving out after April 5, charges will be prorated based on the date the room is vacated and the checkout process is completed. Students cancelling and moving out will not be assessed the standard cancellation fee.

We will not be voiding guarantees for students who opt to cancel their university housing for spring. Therefore, if a student has a guarantee that extends beyond spring 2020, they will retain that guarantee as long as they apply during the upcoming April 13-20 Priority Housing Application Period.

Express Check Out (available any time):
- Make sure your room/apartment is clean (apartment common areas should be cleaned by agreement with your housemates).
- Remove all of your belongings.
- Lock your door and windows.
- Obtain an Express Check Out Envelope from your Housing/Student Life Office if you have a room/apartment key to return. Please write your NAME and ROOM NUMBER legibly on the outside of the envelope.
- Return your key (if applicable) to your Housing/Student Life Office.

INSPECTIONS AND BILLING: Housing staff will inspect all rooms and apartments. It is your responsibility along with your roommates to clean your space and return all furniture to its proper configuration. You will be billed for any cleaning or damage costs based on the condition of your space when you leave.

REMINDER ABOUT SCHEDULED POWER OUTAGES: two scheduled campus-wide power outages will occur during spring break:
- Saturday, March 21st from 4:00AM to 11:59PM
- Saturday, March 28th from 4:00AM to 11:59PM
