This message is intended to provide information related to the residential move-out that was referenced in today’s campus-wide email. I understand how frustrating this must be for you. My team and I are going to work tirelessly to ensure that this process is as seamless as possible.

As noted in the campus notification, students are required to move out of the residence halls when you have completed your midterms. The latest date that you can be in the residence halls is Wednesday, March 18. In advance of your move-out, please see below for relevant information.

  1. For residents of 150 Massachusetts Avenue and 160 Massachusetts Avenue, you may check out moving carts from your RA office or the Housing Office in 150 Massachusetts Avenue. For residents of 270 Commonwealth, 98 Hemenway and the Fenway, your Resident Director will have dollies and small carts available in the RA office.
  2. When you leave campus, please drop your room key off at the security desk or the Housing Office at 150 Massachusetts Avenue. We ask that you do not give your key to your RA or anyone else to turn in for you.
  3. To assist you with the move-out process, we have partnered with New England Student Services (NESS). NESS can assist you with storage or shipping needs, and will be providing complimentary boxes for students. NESS staff will be on site this Thursday, March 12 and Friday, March 13 in the 160 Massachusetts Avenue lobby from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in addition to Saturday, March 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You can also place orders with NESS in advance on their website.
  4. We are also partnering with our Facilities team to ensure that movers are available in every residential area on Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m..
  5. As stated in today’s campus-wide email, there is also an established appeal process in place in case of extenuating circumstances. If this applies to you, you may submit this appeal form to stay on campus by Friday, March 13. Please be aware that campus services will be severely limited.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important notice. If you have any questions or concerns, please come to the Housing Office at 150 Massachusetts Avenue, which is open from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., today and 9:00am to 5:00pm tomorrow. You can also email us directly at
