GeneralWhat services does Campus Storage provide?
Campus Storage provides moving and storage for the summer break, study abroad storage, and shipping services for college students.
If my building has stairs can you carry the boxes up and down stairs?
Absolutely! Our trained professionals are working to make your moving and storage experience hassle and stress free.
How does the Campus Storage program work?
We will ship your packing kits roughly 1 to 4 weeks before your pick up date. We will then pick up your items from your apartment or college dorm room on your designated date and time and transport them to our secure storage facility. When you are ready to schedule your delivery, log into your account and schedule your delivery online. When scheduling your delivery, please give us at least a 10 days' notice.
What if I don't know how much I am storing?
This is common as most students will figure out what they are actually going to store as they begin to pack. The movers will assess what you are actually storing at the time of pick-up, and your monthly bill will be calculated accordingly on move out day.
Can I store my furniture?
Yes! However we do not handle or store large futons or couches.
Is there anything I cannot store?
You may not store cash, hazardous materials, liquids, firearms, any perishable or illegal items. We do not recommend storing anything of extreme value.
Can I store just one box?
Yes, you can absolutely store one box, but keep in mind there's a minimum monthly storage price per student. Please reference to our pricing page to view your school's minimum storage fee.
What if I need my stored items in the middle of the summer?
We do not offer mid-summer deliveries. We only deliver on dates specified on the website.

If you are returning to campus early for Athletics, RA, Orientation Leader, etc., we suggest that you ship or take home with you necessities such as bedding and toiletries so you have them with you when you arrive back to campus early, then we will deliver the rest of your stored items on the delivery date you selected.
