Student Storage Program

The college provides storage options for students, both while they are on campus in-residence, and while they are away from campus.

Storage of Personal Items While Away from Campus

  • This storage program is available to all returning students who live in traditional housing on campus.

    Connors Brothers is providing this service, with coordination support from the Residential Life & Housing team within the Office of Campus Life.

    Advance sign-up for the 2021 summer program is required, and will take place online from April 29 – May 6, 2021.

    Students who sign up for the 2021 summer program, will be notified on May 7 regarding box/tape pick-up, labeling, where to leave items to be picked up for storage, etc.

  • Students may store items that are permitted in campus residences by college policy.

    Items NOT permitted in campus residences by college policy are NOT permitted to be stored in this program.

    Additional items that may NOT be stored in this program include: college-owned items, personally-owned mini-fridges and microwaves, food of any kind (including spices), liquids of any kind, explosives or explosive materials, and firearms.

    Non-permitted items that are found to have been stored, will result in a $250 fine, the loss of future storage privileges, and, depending on what was stored, a possible referral to the Deans for disciplinary action.

    The college assumes no responsibility for personal items placed in storage, and it is strongly recommended that valuable items not be placed in storage.

  • Each student participating in the program will be charged the following on their term bill:

    • PDHS (pick-up, drop-off, handling, supplies) fee of $50 – includes pick-up from your residence hall common room, sorting and inventorying at the warehouse, delivery to your residence hall common room when you return, and four flat boxes and tape
    • Storage fee of $5 per item per month
    • Large items and/or items of extraordinary weight, may result in a surcharge on top of these fees

    Participating students who receive financial aid will receive a credit on their term bill for the $50 PDHS fee and for the storage fee for up to four items per month.

  • Students may contract directly with local companies who provide off-site storage options, if they wish to do so. Students have typically used Connors Brothers and Mullen, among others. Students who choose to do so, are responsible for all communication, coordination, and contracting, and are responsible for any resulting damage caused to college property.

    Any storage pods that are to be brought to campus, must be placed in locations pre-approved by Facilities for drop-off and pick-up.


Storage of Personal Items While On Campus In-Residence

  • During the academic year, storage space is available in most residence halls for students to store some personal belongings (luggage, etc.).

    Furniture (beds, couches, chairs, etc.) is not permitted in campus storage due to lack of space.

    With the exception of co-ops, where residents monitor their own storage areas, arrangements for storage or removal should be made through the building custodian. (If the custodian has responsibility for more than one building and can’t be located, CSS may be contacted for access.)

    The college assumes no responsibility for personal items placed in storage and it is strong recommended that valuable items not be placed into storage.

  • Due to the limited space available, in-house storage rooms are routinely cleaned out at the end of the academic year to ensure storage space for the following year’s residents. Any items left in these spaces at the end of the academic year shall be deemed transferred to the college and will be disposed of at the discretion of the college. It is further expressly acknowledged and agreed by all persons using the storage areas that the proceeds, if any, of such disposal likewise shall be the property of the college.

  • Students may contract directly with local companies who provide off-site storage options, if they wish to do so. Students have typically used Connors Brothers and Mullen, among others. Students who choose to do so, are responsible for all communication, coordination, and contracting, and are responsible for any resulting damage caused to college property.

    Any storage pods that are to be brought to campus, must be placed in locations pre-approved by Facilities for drop-off and pick-up.
