Storage of Personal Items

Storage of Personal Items While In-Residence On Campus

(For information about storage of personal items over the summer, etc., follow this link.)

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

Due to the limited space available, storage rooms are routinely cleaned out at the end of the academic year to ensure storage space for the following year’s class. Any items left in storage 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.

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

Students may contract directly with local companies who provide off-site storage options for students 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 pre-approved by Facilities for drop-off and pick-up.
