Room Inspections

As part of the move-out experience, RAs/Housing staff will be conducting room inspections each time a resident moves out of their residential space. RAs/Housing staff will be opening all drawers, closet/wardrobes, bathrooms, cabinets, etc. in the bedrooms and common spaces to ensure all personal items have been removed from the space.

If any items are left behind, residents may be assessed fees for property removal for the time and number of items left behind.

RAs/Housing Staff will be taking note of the cleanliness of your residential room space and all common areas. Do your best to sweep, mop, and wipe down all surfaces including inside any drawer space to the best of your ability.


Defrost and remove all items from your refrigerators. When defrosting your refrigerator, please place a towel underneath to catch any condensation. Any items left in the refrigerator after the last roommate has moved out will be charged for the time and number of items removed to the entire room or suite.

Mail Forwarding

Please change your mailing address in your myNKU as well as any other sites you may have used the on-campus mailing addresses (e.g., Amazon, USPS, UPS, Pharmacies, etc.). University housing will not be forwarding any mail or packages received after move-out has occurred.

Do you have questions about closing?

Should you have any questions regarding any closing related items, please connect with your RA or Housing Professional staff of your residential community.  Good luck with the remainder of the Spring Semester!
