Moving Out

Everyone living in a Nittany Apartment is responsible for the condition of that room at the time of checkout. It is important for roommates to develop a plan together for cleaning and getting the room back to its original move-in state.

To avoid charges for damages and additional cleanup, please follow these move-out instructions:


  • Remove all personal belongings from your room.
  • Remove all decorations, stickers, and tape/putty from surfaces.
  • Clean the furniture, including the interiors of drawers, shelves, etc.
  • Clean any common areas in your room – bathrooms, hallways, study areas, etc.
  • Sweep/vacuum the floor.

Refrigerator/Microwave unit

  • Clean the entire unit inside and out.
  • Defrost refrigerator, but make sure to keep the unit plugged in and turned on.


  • Return furniture to its original location.


  • Take all trash to the dumpster.

Cable TV

  • If you have subscribed to premium cable TV service, be sure to disconnect the service and make final billing arrangements.

When you are ready to check out:

  • Turn off all lights.
  • Lock and secure your door.
