This program is designed to provide you with the best storage services available at the best prices possible. Details are listed below.

This year, we will again coordinate with Residence Life to return stored items to the student rooms prior to your arrival in September. By signing up for summer storage, you are authorizing us to release your items in storage to a member of Residence Life.

All accounts must be paid in full to qualify for this early delivery.
