The process for 2023-24 will be:
- Fill out the form by clicking the STORAGE REQUEST FORM link to the right. Storage is only available for those who live 300 or more miles away from campus.
- An email will be sent from the Residence Life Office (Eisenhower 166) when tags are ready to be picked up. Due to limited space available, a student can not store more than five boxes, international students can store up to seven boxes.
- Once the student has boxed up (and LABELED) their items for storage (must still follow the guidelines below), the student should call the RA on clock during the appropriate times to be let into the storage area.
- If you have any questions about this process, either email your RD or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following information is our general storage information.
Messiah University provides opportunities for on-campus residents to store (at no additional charge) personal belongings during the academic school year when residents live over three hundred miles away from campus and have brought items that do not fit well in their residence hall rooms/apartments.
Messiah University provides opportunities for on-campus residents to store (at no additional charge) personal belongings during the summer when residents live over three hundred miles away from campus, will be returning to live on campus during the following academic year, and cannot bring certain items back and forth between home and campus during these months.
All on-campus residents who wish to gain access to storage during the academic school year or summer must apply for storage tags through the Residence Life Office by filling out the storage form located online. Residents will not receive a confirmation or approval from these offices and are individually responsible for following up by contacting their Residence Director to pick up their storage tags. There are particular times when access to storage items is available. Your all-hall meeting will give you further helpful information about our storage policies.
Items that do not have the approved/correct tags from the Residence Life/Housing office will not be accepted for storage.
The following items cannot be stored: Empty boxes, furniture of any kind, carpet, lumber, tires, flammable liquids or room furnishings. Due to limited space available, a student can not store more than fives boxes.
Items that remain in storage for more than 30 days after permanently leaving on-campus housing or student status (i.e. transfer, graduation, etc.) will be disposed of after an attempt has been made to contact him/her.
Messiah University Residence Life and Housing provide free storage as a hospitable privilege to on-campus residents who meet the above noted criteria. The college reserves the right to discontinue a resident's use of storage if he or she does not comply with the policies related to storing items on campus. All storage items that are not taken out during the mandatory take out times, do not have tags, or are left in storage after a student has graduated will be thrown away or donated. Messiah University will not send forgotten items to residents after they have left for the summer or because of graduation.
