Move-In & Move-Out
The Housing Coordinator will contact you approximately two-three weeks before your scheduled class begins to schedule your arrival time. If you arrive outside of your allowed arrival time, you are responsible for finding transportation and housing accommodations until new arrangements with the housing manager have been made. Contact maybe done via email, be sure to check your spam/junk mail for correspondences when it is two-three weeks before class.
If you are driving, a staff member will meet you at the apartments (during your scheduled time only) to assist with move-ins, we ask that you call when you are 15-20 minutes from Royal Oaks Apartments in order to receive your building number.

If for some reason you miss a flight, your car breaks down, etc. and new arrangements must be made, you must contact the housing manager to make new arrangements.
Students moving into the student housing will receive a move-in checklist on the first day of class and must be signed by everyone in the apartment and submitted back to the housing manager by Wednesday. The move-in checklist is for your protection with your security deposit when you are going to move-out. Your housing area must be in the same condition when you move-out as when you move in.
During your last week of class you will receive a check-out cleaning list. If the apartment is left in a clean and move-in ready condition, the full security deposit will be returned. If the apartment is not in move-in ready condition and you choose to not clean the apartment, a portion or all of the security deposit may not be returned, depending on the amount of time needed to make the apartment ready for new students. These charges may be divided among all the tenants who are staying in that apartment.
