Sansom Storage

In-Room Summer Storage

Graduate student residents returning to their same room for 2019-20, but leaving for the summer, can leave their belongings in their room. No need to pack everything up and move it all back in! For summer 2019, students will be charged a flat fee of $150 for this option. In-room summer storage for graduate students in Sansom East is for the months of June, July, and August only. Here are the conditions:

  • You must be living in a Single-1BR/shared bath, Single-1BR/LR/KIT apartment, or Grad Plus apartment. Students living in a Double-2BR/KIT apartment may participate if both residents are retaining their room for next year and vacating their room during the summer.
  • You must move out by Sunday, June 30 at noon. Sansom Storage is not available for residents with move-out extensions.
  • All valuables such as computers and electronics must be removed.
  • Belongings remaining in the room must be moved away from the walls and corners.
  • The refrigerator must be emptied; perishable foods must be removed from all spaces.
  • The room must be clean and orderly.
  • If you are living in a Single-1BR/Shared bath unit, you must remove all belongings from the bathroom.
  • Residents are strongly encouraged to have rental insurance for their belongings.
  • Cleaning will not take place in the unit, but any scheduled maintenance will (examples include air filter replacement and pest management).
  • You must schedule an inspection with the Sr. Residential Services Manager that must occur near the date of move-out.
    • The latest move-out date in Sansom East is Sunday, June 30.
  • When you leave campus, you must stop by the Sansom East information center to officially check out of your room for the summer and return your key.
