As long as it takes to pack his stuff and leave. Shouldn't take long, right?

No problem applying for ESTA in the future.

Does it need to be the same day school closes. He is in an apartment not campus, have furniture etc to dispose of.
tho his only worry appears to be packing his games console!!!

No. He is allowed a reasonable time to leave... but there's no definition of the word "reasonable". Some people suggest 10 days, some 30 days. I think two weeks is reasonable. That said, if his visa is stamped "D/S" that means it's unlikely that anyone from US immigration is ever going to come looking for him.

If it's in reasonably good shape, he can donate the furniture to Goodwill - in fact, they'll pick it up.

It's practically brand new, one careful student owner (lol)...but excellent idea.
