Once a work order has been submitted either in person or by phone, it generally takes 24-48 hours (1-2 working days) for maintenance staff to do the repair. Work orders are prioritized, so if there are other emergencies (e.g., water leaks, etc.), it may take longer.

About Moving Out

A 60-day vacate notice is required. Please be aware that you will be charged up to 60 days' rent unless 60 days' notice is given. Rooms are reassigned to new residents based on vacate dates. Vacate dates may not be extended except on a case by case basis, with the exception of extreme emergencies. 

  • If you indicated a vacate date beyond 60 days, you will be charged through that date.
  • If you indicated less than 60 days, you will be charged 60 days from the date of receipt of the notice.
  • If you do not vacate by the date you indicated, we will re-key the unit and place your belongings in storage. You will be billed for the re-key and transfer and storage of your belongings.

If you move out and want to live at Lewis and Clark Village in the future, even if it is the next semester, you will need to submit a new Lewis and Clark Village housing application with the deposit and application fee, as well as being placed on the wait for assignment list for a room be available.

You may submit your 60-day intent to vacate notice online using the Vacate Form.

For more information about moving out, please see the Checkout Procedures and Cleaning List.

After your roommate moves out, Lewis and Clark Village staff (VAs) will come in and check the vacated bedroom and do a visual check for damages in the common areas. Maintenance staff (custodian, carpenter, and electrician) will then individually come in to do their appropriate check of the vacant bedroom. Dates and times are difficult to schedule due to other work orders and priorities. This can take 10-14 working days depending on the time of year.

Roommates are reassigned to the vacant room. You can check for roommate information by logging in to the myHousingPortal or contact the Lewis and Clark Village Office with questions.

When you move out of Lewis and Clark Village, your room will be checked, and any charges for damages or cleaning will be posted to your student account. The deposit will then be released to your student account (CyberBear). If there are no other charges owing to the University of Montana, a refund is issued through NelNet. You should expect the refund within 30 days of the return of your keys to the Lewis and Clark Village Office.
