Checkout Process Task List

Tasks for All Residents

Submit your release request form

Any resident interested in being released from their 2400 Nueces housing contract before their contract end date must obtain, complete and submit a release request form to housing@austin.utexas.edu. Contract releases will only be granted to residents who are graduating, studying abroad or participating in an internship that requires relocation. If your reason for requesting a contract release differs from those listed, please contact our housing team. Contract release requests for those moving out in May must be completed by April 15 at 5 p.m. to avoid a cancellation penalty. You will be able to indicate your checkout date on the form, and your billing end date will be adjusted based on your checkout date. Please see the 2023-24 Contract Terms and Conditions for 9-month contracts and 12-month contracts for more details.

After closing day and for a period of 30 days, only first-class mail will be forwarded to your new address.

Bike storage

Make sure to remove your bicycle from the 2400 Nueces storage room prior to your departure.

Ensure that bed spaces remain vacant

Once a bed space is vacated in your apartment, 2400 Nueces staff will come check within 72 hours that the space has been properly vacated. These apartment visits generally happen on two occasions: when a resident has recently moved out of a room within your apartment space or because items obstructed our staff’s ability to check a vacated bed space during their inspection.

Room inspections are very brief and only to ensure that a former resident has removed everything from their room and bathroom. You are not required to be present for the inspection. Once inspections are completed, please note that our building services team will enter the apartment within a week to clean the space and fix any damages found in the inspection.

If you have any questions, please direct them to the 2400 Nueces team or call 512-232-7517.
