ATLANTA — Packing up and moving out -- this weekend, all across the metro area, thousands of college students are having to clear out their dorm rooms.
With the high number of move-outs, the process must be strategic in order to control the spread.
The deadline for many of the schools is coming soon.
For example, at Spelman College, the deadline to move out is Saturday night at 9 p.m.
Georgia College said that students have been given scheduled check-out times over the next eight days. They are only allowing a maximum of 24 students to check-out of each building during a 3 1/2 hour period.
Students have been assigned times so that they are no closer than six rooms apart, on separate wings and across several floor levels.
The University of Georgia has also assigned appointment times between now and March 27. Georgia Tech is asking students to move out of dormitories by March 29.
According to Clark Atlanta University, the school plans to close its dormitory on Monday night.
