Move-Out Instructions

Fall Move-Out

The residence halls (Warren Olney, Orchard Meadow, Lynn Townsend White, Ethel Moore, and Mary Morse) close for winter break. If you live in one of these spaces, you will have to move out over winter break, but your belongings can stay in your room.

Independent living spaces (Prospect Hill, Ross House, Larsen House Co-op, and Courtyard Townhouses) are open over winter break for their current residents who intend to live there in the spring. If you are leaving Mills College as of the fall, then your move-out date will be in December.

Underwood Apartments are also open during winter break. If you are leaving Mills College as of the fall, then your move-out date will also be in December.

Spring Move-Out

Due to academic instruction moving to an online format for the rest of the spring semester, students may opt to leave housing prior to the end of the semester. For more information, please see the Guide to Moving Out During COVID-19 (PDF).

The Reuse Depot is closed and not accepting anymore donations for the remainder of the semester and the shelter-in-place period, due to the state order and employees meeting compliance. Also, we will not hold the Reusables Drive this year for the same reason. The Reuse Depot staff would like to urge students to donate to Goodwill or other organizations, some of which are still collecting. Here is a link to alternative donation organizations in the Oakland area.  We recommend students contact donation centers ahead of time before traveling to ensure that they are still collecting.

The residence halls (Warren Olney, Orchard Meadow, Hettie Belle Ege, Lynn Townsend White, Ethel Moore, and Mary Morse) and independent living spaces (Prospect Hill, Ross House, Larsen House Co-op, Courtyard Townhouses) close for the summer at 12:00 noon on Friday, May 15, 2020.

Students who are graduating on May 16 have until 12:00 noon on Sunday, May 17, 2020 to move out.

The Underwood Apartment move-out deadline for students who have not taken up a summer housing contract is 12:00 noon on June 15, 2020.
