Packing and Moving Instructions: Faculty and Staff

Please notify Facilities Management about your upcoming move by submitting a service request. Let us know if you have any time constraints so we can plan and complete the move to your satisfaction.

If you are moving because of a renovation, a service request is not required.

Supplies

Facilities Management will provide:

  • Packing boxes
  • Moving stickers (please do not use labels that are not removable)

Your department or school is responsible for providing:

  • Markers
  • Tape
  • Other incidental items for the move

Preparation

  • Empty all desks
  • Remove all personal valuables, pictures, loose belongings etc. and store them in another location during the move or renovation
  • Unlock and empty all shelves, bookcases, credenzas and storage cabinets and pack the contents in boxes
  • Empty all two, three and four drawer lateral-type filing cabinets and pack the content in boxes (lateral cabinets are not structurally stable enough to be moved when they are full)
  • Tape all moving boxes at the top and bottom with packing tape, not masking tape
  • Clearly mark all boxes on at least two sides with your last name and initial, plus the room number of each box's final destination
  • Clearly mark all furniture items that are not surplus with a removable moving sticker that includes your name and the room number of the item's final destination
  • Phones should not be disconnected or packaged
  • If you are moving due to a renovation, Facilities Management will coordinate any required computer moves with IT
