|Summer Session Attended||Move-In Date||Move-In Time|
|Summer Session 1 or Summer Sessions 1 & 2||Monday, May 20, 2019||4 p.m. to 8 p.m.|

Many summer residences will be occupied on the morning of May 20 until 10 a.m. Residences are readied and made available following academic year move-out; many will not be ready for move-in at 4 p.m. Luggage storage sites will be available at each of the summer residence areas if you arrive before your residence has been readied for move-in.
If you arrive after the designated move-in time listed above, you will still be able to receive keys to your residence. If you arrive at a time your residence office (which will be included alongside your room assignment information and can be found on the Residence office locations page) is closed, you will need to contact the Resident Assistant on call in order to receive temporary keys to move in. The on-call schedule for Resident Assistants is posted by the entrance of your residence office and in the vestibule of each residence.
The following checkout procedures must be completed when you move out of summer housing:
- remove all your personal belongings and trash from your assigned room/apartment,
- unplug and clean all appliances,
- close and lock all windows,
- turn off the lights,
- leave your room/apartment in a clean, habitable condition,
- lock the door(s), and
- return your residence key(s) in person to your summer residence office; ask for a key receipt
Standard move-out times are as follows:
|Summer Session Attended||Move-Out Date||Move-Out Time|
|Summer Session 1||Saturday, June 29, 2019||Before 10 a.m.*|
|Summer Session 1 & 2, or Summer Session 2||Saturday, August 10, 2019||Before 10 a.m.|
*If you are assigned for Summer Session 1 only and sign an agreement for Summer Session 2 no later than Friday, June 28, 2019, or if you are assigned for both summer sessions, you may remain in on-campus housing between sessions at no additional charge
Move-out dates for some special programs may vary from the aforementioned move-out dates depending on the length of the program. If you are enrolled in a Boston University Summer Term course with dates that are different than those of Summer Session 1 or 2, contact the Summer Housing Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-353-3511 to confirm the date/time by which you will need to move out.
