End of the Year Checklist

The end of the year is busy with finals, end of the year celebrations, and saying goodbyes to friends who will be going separate ways for the summer. To make things easier on you, we have compiled a list of a few things to remember before you set off for your summer adventures.

  • If you have books that you no longer want/need, sell them back for cash! http://shop.arizona.edu/cashback/ Also, make sure to return rented books.
  • If you rented out a locker at Campus Rec, be sure to remove all your items.
  • Remember to return any rented equipment or borrowed library books.
  • Make sure you fill out a mail forwarding form to have your mail sent to your summer address.
  • If you are leaving for the summer, remember to take your bike with you. If you will be staying and leaving your bike in a locker or enclosure, be sure to renew.
  • Clean your apartment/room thoroughly. Remember that tasks like defrosting and cleaning a fridge will need to be done at least a day in advance!
  • For items you don’t plan on taking with you, consider donating them to the Salvation Army who will be collecting donations in the dorm lobbies. This prevents items from going into the landfill.
  • If you have leftover nonperishable food items, consider donating them to the UA Campus Pantry (Food donations can be dropped at the pantry - to find them, turn left at the Information Desk located next to UMart in the Student Union. Proceed down the stairs and you will see a sign for the UA Campus Pantry).
  • Make sure you know the date you must be moved out by and any expectations for how you should be leaving your room, so you do not accrue any additional charges. https://housing.arizona.edu/move-out.  Remember to return your key before you leave!
