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.
