Student Move-In/Move-Out

Making Your Transition a Good One

To help ensure that your move-in or move-out of Liberty's residence halls runs like a well-oiled machine, follow the procedures below.


Fall 2019

  • End-of-Semester Checkout

    All students must make arrangements to be out of the residence halls within 24 hours after their last exam. If you would like to request to stay past that time due to travel arrangements or other circumstances, please contact your Resident Director.

    The residence halls officially close for the Fall 2019 semester on Wed., Dec. 11, 2019 at 12 p.m.

    Beyond Checkout Request

    If you would like to stay after the residence halls officially close, please submit a Beyond Checkout Request. Requests will be open for the Fall 2019 semester on this page from November 11-December 4, 2019.

    The latest date that you may be approved for Beyond Checkout through is Mon., December 16, 2019 at 12 p.m.

    Please allow 3-5 business days for processing after submitting your request.
