1. Start Planning Early

Moving out of a college dorm or apartment can be overwhelming, especially with finals and graduation festivities on the horizon. However, starting the planning process early can mitigate stress and ensure a smoother transition, helping college students . . . 

  • Secure their preferred moving date and coordinate logistics with roommates, landlords, and the moving company.

  • Have more time to focus on academic responsibilities and enjoy their final days on campus without worrying about how they’re going to pack, move, or transport heavy furniture.

  • Make packing more efficient, allowing students to declutter and organize before transitioning into the next phase.
