Storage Services
 

Storage Services Offered

R&DE Student Housing is pleased to announce that we have arranged with professional storage vendors Collegeboxes.com and Door to Door as our 2014 preferred vendors to provide year-round storage of students' items, as well as summer-only storage.

Collegeboxes.com, owned by U-Haul International, Inc., will store student's belongings, including odd-sized items as well as boxed items, in their nearby, secure, climate-controlled facility, and will transport them to and from campus as part of the service fee. Collegeboxes also offers "At Your Door" pickup and delivery, boxes and packing supplies, and shipping to and from school.  Please note that Collegeboxes/U-Haul is not our preferred storage pod vendor this year.

Door to Door storage container/pod rental is available to students for summer and year-round storage.  Students may rent a storage pod to be dropped off at various on-campus locations (subject to availability), fill the pod within 72 hours of receiving it, and Door to Door will then store the pod in their secure and climate-controlled facility for the duration of the summer.

Please note: The University assumes no responsibility for loss of, or damage to, items in storage. Additionally, contracts with our preferred vendors, Collegeboxes.com and Door to Door, are entered into by the student and the company. The University is not a party to these contracts.

Students who opt to use a non-preferred storage pod vendor will have restricted options on where the containers may be located, and might find that they are not able to have units placed in the locations most convenient to their residence, which have been reserved for use by the preferred vendor (Door to Door).  For a map of non-preferred vendor drop locations, click here.
