  • Moving Out Guide

  • Are you moving out soon and have questions about how to dispose your items? Nature Village has organized Moving Out Guide to help you!

    A couple of other important reminders:

    Mail and Forwarding Address Before you move, please provide the Village Office (and Bear Facts) with a forwarding address (your new address, even if it is in another country), to ensure proper receipt of your security deposit.

    Also, submit a change of address form to the US Postal Service (Post Office or www.usps.com) to let them know the date they should discontinue your mail delivery. Note that once you move out we are not allowed to let you back into your old mailbox to check mail.

    After-Hours Key Return The Village Office must receive your keys on your move-out date or no later than 6:00am the following day, or you will be charged an additional day of rent.

    If you cannot return your keys before closing at 5:00pm on weekdays, or by 1:00pm on Saturdays, you may drop them through the front door slot of the Village Office in order for us to receive them by the next morning. Please put them in a sealed envelope marked with your building and apartment number, the student's name and phone number, and the number of keys your are returning.

    A $50 lock change fee will be charged, if we do not receive all keys in your possession (including spare keys you have purchased) by 6:00am on the day after your move-out date.

    If you are counting on a friend to return your keys for you, please inform them of the above policies to avoid these additional charges against your security deposit.
