Summer Storage Options

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.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
