Residential Storage Information

Accessing Storage Fall Opening

For students arriving early who did not store their items in Residence Life's early arrival storage room T/P 144A, please contact an RA, RCC, or GHC for that building to request an appointment. Per Residence Life’s storage guidelines, students are not guaranteed access to storage units prior to August 28th. Please be advised RAs, RCCs, GHCs will be in training and unavailable 9am-5pm 8/17-8/27.

Fall Early Arrival Storage

If you plan on being part of the limited number of approved early arrivals and need access to storage there will be limited space available in one storage unit in Todd/Phibbs 144A available to access before continuing student move-in. Please plan accordingly, and store your items in the south first floor storage unit by contacting the staff on-call for that area during finals week storage admit times. Items stored in any other location on campus will NOT be accessible to early arrival students (Residence Life student staff exempt).  

 Typical approved early arrivals include:

  • Summer orientation staff
  • Select Dining and Conference Services staff 

Students who are NOT approved to move-in to campus early will not have access to stored items over the summer until campus reopens for returning students August 28, 2015. 

Residence Life schedules specific storage access times over finals week for students who meet these eligibility guidelines to store up to five boxes, no larger than 4'x4'x4' each, or more than 70lbs each. Space is limited, and will fill fast.
