Luter Residence Hall

Leaving for Luter: November 2021 to January 2022
    • Alert your RA if you have not received boxes and labels by November 17th.

    Each resident of Bostwick and Johnson will receive 10 boxes and pre-printed labels with their name and future room assignment in Luter. Upon receipt, you can begin to pack your room and belongings on your own timeframe over the coming weeks.

    Those who do not receive these materials, or believe they may need more, should work with hall staff as soon as possible to make sure they have the materials needed. 

    • Traveling home for Thanksgiving? Bring items home that you won’t use again in the spring.
    • Use this Packing List to complete the boxing/labeling of all items you’d like moved.

    As you pack, be sure to keep in mind what you’ll want access to before January, what items you wouldn’t want to leave behind (valuables, breakables, etc.) and how you’ll plan to condense and group your items together.

    Anything that isn’t boxed or is without a label (for large items that cannot fit in a box) will not be moved.


    Have things you aren’t taking with you?

    Starting on November 29th, blue bins will be placed in Bostwick and Johnson for any items you’d like to donate. Additionally, a dumpster will be available for disposing of any bulky items ahead of your move.

    • Make a plan for the day you’ll be departing campus.
    • Complete check-out with RL&H staff to return your room key and complete your packed items audit.

    During finals week (Monday, December 6th through Sunday, December 12th), a staff member from RL&H will be available in the lobby of your building from 9 AM to 5 PM to do a final walk-through of your room, ensuring all your belongings are ready for the move and collecting your room key so that you are not fined.

    Completing a check out with a staff member is important: it allows us to create a record of your belongings should you have any questions or concerns once moved to Luter and eliminates the risk of you leaving campus with your room key and facing a charge.

    If you are leaving after 5 PM, call the RA on-duty to complete this process. No staff will be available after 10 PM. Residence Halls close at 2 PM on December 12th.

  • November 8-12 – Packing supplies arrive to your room, allowing you pack on your own schedule.
  • By December 12 @ 2 p.m. – Before leaving campus for break, your belongings should all be boxed and/or labeled and ready for a move. All trash should be disposed of in community dumpsters (arriving the last week in November).
  • January 6 – Former Bostwick/Johnson residents return to campus. Check in with RL&H staff will take place in the lobby of Luter Residence Hall between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
