Dear TKE Members and Parents,

USC has announced that the fall semester will begin on August 17, 2020.  This is one week earlier than originally scheduled.  To accommodate our members and ensure the best live-in experience, the move-in date for all rooms in TKE will be changed to Friday, August 14, 2020 at 10AM.  This is five days earlier than the original scheduled move-in date. There will be no additional lease costs to our members for this early opening.  Here is a summary schedule:

Parking Lease End Date:                                   8/5/20 at 6PM
Move-Out Date (End of Room Leases):            8/8/20
Move-In Date:                                                    8/14/20 at 10AM
Classes Begin:                                                  8/17/20

We are shortening our move-out to move-in period, the time when we clean and sanitize the property, from 10 days to 5 days.  To successfully execute this process we need our members to cooperate and understand the following:

  1. Move all of your stuff out of your rooms as early as possible. If you are not going to live in TKE next year please start removing your stuff now.  On August 9th all personal stuff left in rooms or common areas will be thrown away.  There will be no second chance area.  The only exception is the TKE East garage where members may store stuff.
  2. If you are out of state or the country and/or will be unable to personally move your stuff, you need to hire a company to do this as soon possible. USC has recommended Blue Chip Moving.  This company will identify and pack your items over video chat.  Contact Kyle at or call him at 909-838-7632.  House Director Lee Snider will coordinate allowing movers onto the property and into your rooms.  We are working on the details of how you may schedule a mover visit.
  3. Be prepared to move into TKE on August 14, 2020 and make sure that all your personal items are in your room by August 18, 2020. That is five days to completely move into your rooms.  Any personal items left in the garage or common areas will be thrown away on August 19, 2020.

We must clean and sanitize the rooms and houses in just half the time we usually take in order to have TKE available for move-in before the new start of school.  Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.  We will continue to develop our plans and share them as they progress.

YITB and Fight On!
