Sansom Storage

In-Room Summer Storage

Graduate student residents returning to their same room for 2018-19, but leaving for the summer, can leave their belongings in their room. No need to pack everything up and move it all back in! You will be charged a small flat fee for this option. For summer 2017, the storage fee was $150. Pricing for summer 2018 will be available soon. In-room summer storage for graduate students in Sansom East is for the months of June, July, and August only. Here are the conditions:
