Move-out Details

In general, students are expected to move out on the date they put on their summer housing application. However, USM students have the option to stay through the gap between the end of summer and the beginning of their fall housing assignment. 

  • USM students staying for the full summer from May until August 11, who have a fall 2023 room assignment at USM and are registered for USM fall classes, may move into their fall 2023 room assignment and stay through the gap period between the end of the summer term and the start of the fall term at no additional charge.
  • Other USM summer students wishing to stay for the gap from August 11 through fall move-in must have a summer move-in date of July 4 or earlier, must be continuing in summer housing for the remainder of the summer session, and must have a fall 2023 room assignment at USM. An additional $140.00 charge will be applied to the student’s account for the gap period.
  • Students without a fall 2023 room assignment and/or those who move into summer housing on or after July 5 are ineligible to live on campus for the gap period from August 11 to fall move-in and must move out at the end of the summer session or by their indicated check-out date on their application, whichever is earlier.
