Some parents and families have had questions about shipping and/or storing their students’ belongings over the summer. Because our residence halls get used over the summer for summer school, camps and conferences, students cannot store their belongings in their residence halls.
For students who want to ship their belongings home, Mail Services on campus has shipping supplies and can do the shipping as well. They also have hand trucks students can use. Mail Services will store some belongings for up to 10 students who are going to the first session of summer school ($30 for two weeks, and available on a first come, first served basis).
Residence Life and Housing has provided the following list of end of year storage options. The local storage companies listed below are convenient to campus and students have used them in the past. None of these companies are affiliated with the University.

|Extra Space Storage|

|Moore Self Storage|

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
