Carroll University Residence Hall Move-Out Resumed

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Update April 22, 2020

Waukesha has given Carroll University permission to resume move-out beginning Saturday, April 25. Our process aligns with university efforts to minimize the spread of the coronavirus, encourage social distancing, and seeks to provide students and their families flexibility in making necessary arrangements.

Move-out Scheduling

You must sign up for a move-out date and time. Your Area Director (AD) will e-mail you with information on how to sign up for a move-out date and time and other relevant move-out information. Move-out will be April 25-May 8, May 10-17 and May 26-28. During your scheduled time, you can access your building and space to collect belongings. Residents must complete move-out by the end of their window to allow the next group to enter. A complete move-out means ALL items (excluding furniture provided by the university) must be removed.

We recognize some students and their families may not feel comfortable moving out during the Safer at Home Order. These students can sign up for a check-out on May26-28 through the general sign up process. If you have extenuating circumstances, please complete this form with an explanation of your circumstances and the date you expect to be able to move out. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Move-Out Assistance

Residents are permitted one adult (18 years of age or older) to help. This adult must be free of Covid-19 symptoms, and it is strongly advised you do not bring an adult who is immunocompromised. Pets, additional guests or children are not permitted in halls during move-out. Those who bring them will be asked to leave and reschedule. We encourage using gloves, face masks and disinfectant wipes throughout move-out, in addition to frequent handwashing, as directed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Unfortunately, carts and other moving equipment will not be available, and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. We encourage you to bring items such as a dolly or cart to use.


To limit congestion outside halls, there is a “one vehicle per resident” policy for move-out. Parking will be available near all halls. Please do not block traffic and obey parking regulations. If you are a garage-user bringing a U-Haul or other vehicle, the door clearance is 6 feet, 8 inches.

Key Return and Room Check-Out Process

Residents do not need to check out with residence life staff. Residents will only be required to remove belongings, clean the unit, return furniture to its original configuration, check mailboxes and return keys.

Key Return Only 

This is ONLY for those who have completely moved out and have not returned their key.

If you need to mail your key back, please use the steps below. (We are not responsible for keys lost in the mail.)


All Carroll storage units have been reserved, and we are unfortunately unable to issue spaces at this time. If you need storage, we recommend contacting local companies to secure a unit before your move-out. For your convenience, here are some links:
