Check-in / Check-out Process


New graduate students will be able to move into their fall assignments on or after Monday, August 21, 2023. Graduate students can check-in at the Office of Residential Life between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Students anticipating an arrival past 5 p.m. or on a weekend day because of travel plans must contact The Office of Residential Life so that the appropriate arrangements can be made.  Residential Life can be reached 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at 860-685-3550. If you are a new student, the $200 housing deposit is due when the lease is signed. If you do not have the housing deposit, you will not be able to sign the lease or get the keys to your unit.  If you have issues with securing the deposit for your arrival, please contact us by submitting a ResLife ticket through your WesPortal.


Graduate students who will not be attending Wesleyan for the Fall 2023 semester must move out of their units by May 31, 2023 or request an extension (see information below).  

1. Communicate move-out date and forwarding address (for security deposit) to Jade Steinback at the Office of Residential Life.
2. Move all  belongings out (any items left behind will result in a charge placed on your account).
3. Clean the unit (remove trash and recycling, vacuum and dust all rooms).
4. Return the keys to Jade Steinback during Office hours (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday) or if the office is closed, return the keys to the drop box located between North and South College near the glass walkway on the High Street side of the buildings.

Any requests for lease extensions must be submitted in writing to the Office of Residential Life. Lease extensions will be reviewed on a case by case basis and only in extreme circumstances will the Office permit students to extend their lease. Students granted a lease extension must grant Physical Plant access to their unit to evaluate and execute preparation for the next tenant and pay the additional rent incurred.

*Please note: lease extensions are not guaranteed
