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! We also permit local residents to utilize this service. 

Please review the building availability list 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 your fall Housing Area 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.

Drop-and-Go Storage Guidelines

  • Drop-and-Go Storage is available ONLY during these times: 
    • Thursday August 5 - Friday August 6,
      between 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. 
    • Monday August 9 - Friday August 13, 
      between 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. 
    • You will NOT be able to store items after this timeframe or on other days.
  • Storing items is "at your own risk." Penn State assumes no liability in providing this service, and recommends that students have proper insurance coverage for all personal property. Only non-valuable items may be stored - please do not store electronics or valuable items.
  • All items must be labeled with your full name, PSU ID, fall room assignment, and your cell phone number.
  • If your room is available, this option is a drop-and-go storage option. You will not be permitted to unpack or set up your room. All items should be placed on the bed/dresser.
  • If your room is not available, Housing will provide you the ability to store your items in a general storage area provided by Housing. Be sure to discuss with Housing staff what pick-up times will be offered for when you return to campus. There may be limited times to retrieve your belongings.
  • If you change your room assignment after August 2, please be aware that your new room may not be available. You will need to contact Housing to verify status.
