Tips for move-out

The city of Athens encourages students and families to have a safe and socially distant move-out, and offers the following suggestions:
 

• Talk to your landlord about early move-out incentives. Some landlords are encouraging students to move out early by offering deals for early move-outs.

• Consider taking your furniture home with you. Most Athens redistribution centers are closed during this time and donated furniture will need to be sanitized.

• Take shelf-stable foods to local food pantries. Food pantries still need donations.

• The city has waived the 24-hour on street parking rule to expedite moving.

• Please move out quickly without unnecessary contact with others – stay safe and healthy!

When returning to campus for move-out, please remember that all University buildings are closed. If you need to access Stocker Center or the Academic & Research Center, contact engineering@ohio.edu.
