Storage Policy

We encourage students to begin packing before exam period. Students may store belongings in their current hall only.  

Please note that all storage in the residence halls is at your own risk. Only students returning to residence halls for the following semester may store belongings. Graduating seniors and students going on leave or exchange may not store their belongings on campus.  

Do not use residence hall storage for any item that you may need before the halls open in the fall.  Access to storage areas will not be available until that then. You will not be allowed to drop-off items into your room during the summer due to the preparation of the halls.   

Storage labels will be generated by the Office of Residential Life. Your Area Coordinator or Resident Director will inform you of the procedure for distribution of labels.

You must move your own belongings into the storage areas. 

Storage Label Distribution and Use

  • Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors returning to residence for the fall semester will receive storage labels which must be attached to all stored items. 
  • Students within a 300-mile radius of the college will receive no storage labels. 
  • Students residing within a 300-600 mile radius and who live in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania will receive 2 storage labels. 
  • All other rising sophomores, juniors and seniors will receive 4 storage labels. 
  • The label should indicate your name, class, extension, and residence hall for fall term. 
  • The space restrictions will not allow for students to share labels.  The above number of labels will determine the maximum number of boxes allowed per student in the storage rooms on campus. 

Each student is allowed to store one item per label, within the following limits:

  • 1 refrigerator (2.5 cub. ft.) cleaned & defrosted, for one label.
  • 2 small boxes (20”x13"x13") for one label.
  • 1 suitcase for one label.
  • 1 plastic, heavy-duty bag for one label.
  • 1 boxed bicycle must have 2 labels attached.
  • 1 37”x18”x18” box per label

If you own a trunk larger than 23”X 20”X 36” you may store the trunk, one 37”x18”x18” box, and one small box (20”x13”x13”).

Absolutely NO rugs, furniture, bookcases, loose items, unboxed bikes, or oversized boxes of any kind may be stored. Such items will be removed and discarded.

You must be able to lift your own boxes without assistance to any shelf in the storage room. Please be aware of the weight of your boxes.

Please note that items may be rearranged to maximize space and your items may not be exactly where you left them when you return in the fall.
