He should get a copy of the lease. In some states, the leaving tenant might have to pay a fee for breaking the lease, in other states the leaving tenant might be responsible for the rent unless the management fills the spot but management must prove they were actively attempting to fill the spot, and in some states the remaining tenants would be stuck with the full rent if one roommate moves out.

I hope none of the utilities are in his name - if they are, he needs to get them put into the others names before he moves out or have them turned off.

Unless utilities are included as part of rent and not separate bills, he shouldn't pay for any utilities after he moves out because he's not using them and would be fine if they were turned off.
