SUMMER STORAGE IN RESIDENCE HALLS
Students are encouraged to begin packing before exam period and 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. 1 refrigerator (2.5 cub. ft.) cleaned & defrosted, for one label.
2. 2 small boxes (20”x13"x13") for one label.
3. 1 suitcase for one label.
4. 1 plastic, heavy-duty bag for one label.
5. 1 boxed bicycle must have 2 labels attached.
6. 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.
When you are ready to store your belongings, be sure your storage items clearly display the label
with your name and fall residence hall address. Residential Life Staff will check storage areas
periodically throughout reading and exam period.
We highly encourage you to take things home with you over breaks and long weekends to avoid
storage problems at the end of the semester.
