Moving Out

Moving Out of your UAH Unit

Failure to provide proper and timely notice of your move out may cause you to continue to remain liable for payment of rent and may result in a financial penalty. You are billed until all personal items are removed and keys are returned to your superintendent.

Important Instructions

  • Notify UAH via My Housing Portal. Log in and select the "Moving Out" tab.
  • Contact your superintendent to discuss your building's specific move-out procedure.
  • Remove all personal belongings from the unit.
  • Clean unit: empty refrigerators and cabinets, remove all trash and sweep all floors.
  • File your forwarding address with the United States Postal Service
  • If applicable, officially disconnect utilities with Con Edison and cable services with Spectrum.
  • Return all keys to your superintendent before 4 PM on the day you move out. You will be billed until the day keys are returned.

Additional Information

Moving Hours

Move outs should be scheduled during business hours: Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 4 PM (excluding holidays). Any furniture or large items must be moved during those hours. If you need to move out after hours, you must contact your superintendent before moving out to coordinate the return of your keys.


If you would like to schedule an inspection of your unit before you move out, please contact your superintendent directly.

Reapplying for Housing

If you would like to apply for housing in the future, you must submit a new application through your housing portal. Kindly note, housing is not guaranteed for continuing students. 

Breaking Your Housing Agreement

Student housing contracts may be broken without penalty for the following reasons:

  • You are graduating;
  • Your affiliation is expiring;
  • You will be taking an approved leave of absence;
  • You will be transferring to another UAH unit. 
If you are moving out for any other reason, contact the UAH office to determine if any charges or penalties apply.

Security Deposits

If you live in a semester-billed unit, the reservation fee you paid to accept your housing offer was credited to your student account when you moved in. If you paid a security deposit for a leased unit, it will be refunded in accordance with the terms of your lease and mailed to your forwarding address 6-8 weeks after you move out.
