Apartment Check-In

When you are assigned an apartment or move to a different apartment, complete a Check-in Form obtained at the Student Housing Office. It is important to list apartment damages on the Check-in Form before moving into an apartment. This form will be used for inspection when vacating the apartment. 

The Check-in Form must be returned to the Student Housing Office before moving any personal items into the apartment.

Apartment Check-Out

When all personal items have been removed from your assigned apartment, three forms:

  1. the Apartment Check-out sheet cleaning list,

  2. the Apartment Check-in/ Check-out Form, and

  3. the Change of Address Form must be completed and returned to the Student Housing Office with your apartment key, mailbox key, and parking decal.

The Dean or an RA must check you out. You must notify the Housing Office at least 24 hours in advance of checking out to make a check-out appointment.

Check-out hours are Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please note:

  • Failure to check out properly will result in forfeiture of the security deposit.

  • AdventHealth University has no summer storage space.

  • Items left in an apartment upon check-out become the property of the University.


The filters on heating and air conditioning units will be cleaned once a month by the Maintenance Department. When leaving for University breaks, the unit should be set on low heat or air. Fan should always be on auto. It is important not to lower the air conditioning units below 68 degrees. This is to prevent freezing of the unit.

Energy Consumption

Please do your part to reduce energy costs. Make a conscious effort to turn off lights and other electrical equipment when not in use. Do not run A/C while windows are open.

Housing Fees

Fees for Student Housing are listed in the Fee Schedule section of the current Academic Catalog. Students commit to residing in Student Housing for the entire trimester.  Residents who move out before the end of the trimester will forfeit their security deposit and will be responsible for the entire trimester’s rent.  Students may vacate at the end of the trimester without penalty by filling out the Housing Intention Form and complying with all housing check-out procedures

Housing Deposit

A $200.00 security deposit is required before housing requests are processed. This deposit must be paid to the Business Office and will remain on file throughout your Housing Contract term. Deposits will not be refunded for room cancellations made after 30 days prior to the move-in date published in the Student Handbook.

Your security deposit will be returned when:

  • Check-out is complete, and confirmation is on file with the Business Office.
  • Housing deposits are only refunded in cash when student has a zero balance on their account.


Room keys and mailbox keys are issued upon check-in. Replacement keys are $200.00 each. Replacement mailbox keys are $25.00 each.

Laundry Facilities

Student Housing is equipped with three laundry facilities. Two are located at Bay Run and one at LaSalle. Students supply their own laundry detergent and supplies. The University does not assume responsibility for damaged or lost clothing during the use of laundry facilities.


Each apartment in Student Housing is assigned a mailbox. Mail is distributed throughout the week; and students are required to check their mailbox every 24 hours. Packages must be signed for by the addressee and may be picked up at the Student Housing Office.

Residents are required to maintain an active student e-mail account and provide the Housing Office with this information. Students are required to check their “” e-mail every 24 hours. Students are held accountable for any information sent to their University e-mail.

Maintaining Your Apartment

To foster good relationships and mutual respect, roommates should share the responsibilities of cleaning apartments.  Extreme uncleanliness:

  • Will jeopardize your Housing Status

  • May result in forfeiture of your security deposit

  • Add additional cleaning fees

Each resident is held responsible by housing staff to keep apartments clean. The Housing Office does not carry cleaning supplies for residential apartments.

New students check into housing throughout the trimester, and they expect to move into a clean apartment at Bay Run or LaSalle.  Therefore, apartments should always be clean and ready for a new roommate.

Suggested Cleaning Schedules are in every apartment. Resident Assistants will help facilitate cleaning schedules.

If an apartment is not maintained according the cleaning schedule, and immediate cleaning is deemed necessary by the University Administration, a professional may be hired to clean the apartment and cleaning fees will be charged to the current residents.

Moving Out of Student Housing

If the student does not enroll for the following term or has not made prior arrangements with the Dean, they will be required to check out of Student Housing within three (3) days after their last exam, class, or graduation.  Failure to notify the housing office of your intent to vacate Student Housing at least thirty (30) days prior to the last day of the trimester will result in forfeiture of the security deposit.  

Moving out after the deadline will result in the loss of the security deposit and a $100 per day charge to the student’s account. 

Moving out of Student Housing only occurs during Monday – Friday during the hours of 9am – 3pm. Hours outside of the designated time must be approved by the Dean.
