Move-in and Move-out

Preparing for Move-Out

We encourage students to plan ahead by making a timeline for packing, cleaning, moving out and planning for storage needs or travel. Students are asked to pack and remove all belongings and clean their room before departure. Donation boxes and dumpsters will be available around campus during the move-out period.

Important dates for Move-Out 2024: 

  • Halls close at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 16 for all non-graduating students.
  • Graduating students are able to remain on campus until 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 19.
  • Requests for late departure are due Friday, May 10 at 5 p.m.

Storage Scholars

Wofford College is pleased to partner with an independent storage, moving, and shipping partner - Storage Scholars. Storage Scholars offer’s an all-inclusive moving & storage service for those who don’t wish to move out and store belongings themselves. Watch their “how it works video” here to see if Storage Scholars is a good fit for you. Here's how it works:

  1. Student signs-up online at
  2. Storage Scholars comes to campus before move-out to distribute boxes, tape and packing supplies to everyone who has registered.
  3. Student packs their room, uploads photos of their items, locks their room and goes home!
  4. Storage Scholars partners with the Office of Residence Life to unlock rooms and move items to storage for the summer.
  5. In the fall, Storage Scholars returns all of the items to the student's new housing assignment before the student returns!

Students who choose to partner with Storage Scholars are responsible for all associated fees/charges.
