If you are moving out, please refer to the information on this page. Utilize the cleaning guides we have created for each building. Make sure to clean your (shared) space, return your key and move out on time to avoid the charges. The Move out instructions apply to all residents living in both the Burnaby and Vancouver residences.
Five steps to a successful move out
Step 1: Report any maintenance issues
Step 3: Clean your (shared) space
Clean your (shared) space to avoid the cleaning charges.
Everyone's Responsibility is to clean their shared spaces including Bathroom, Kitchen, Fridge, Stove and Living Room.
Our maintenance staff will take photographs of any rooms that are left unclean, untidy, or damaged. Refer to the room condition/inventory form you completed when you moved in. Any damage or items needing repair will have been reported on this form and this will be the standard used to assess whether your room is left in the same condition it was received.
For more information regarding how to clean visit our Cleaning page.
Step 4: Return your key on time
Return your key to avoid the lock change charges.
Hand in your key and make sure to get a key receipt (or drop key in the after-hours key drop box at the office). If you are remaining in the same room for the next term, you should not return your key.
Burnaby: Return your key to SFU Residence and Housing office.
Vancouver: Return your key to the drop box located beside the mail boxes in the lobby.
Step 5: Update your mailing address
