Storage Options

Summer Students - don't want to lug your personal belongings home at the end of Summer Session II? Not to worry - you have the option to use our drop-and-go storage option to store your belongings before the end of summer session! Students who live near the campus are also eligible to utilize this service. 

Building availability is listed below - not all residence halls are available, due to summer session residency, conferences/camps, maintenance, or project work.
If your building is NOT available, you can contact the Housing Operations Office about storage options available in the area. Drop-and-go storage is a service that the University offers for your convenience. To use this service, you acknowledge that you are permitted to drop off your personal items to store, and that this is not a time for you to set up your room.
