Gettysburg College will no longer be providing on-campus storage for students. The College has partnered with two companies to make storage for all students easy and efficient. There are a total of three storage options that are now available to all students.

Option #1: Groff's Moving and Storage

With this storage solution, students take their items to a central location on campus where Groff's will be waiting with their storage truck. Groff's will take all storage items away to their climate-controlled warehouse for the entire summer or the duration of a semester (ie: if student is studying off-campus). They perform this service with minimal cost, and students pay Groff's directly at the time of drop-off. There are two days that Groff's will be on campus this May:

  • Wednesday, May 4, 2106 (Reading Day), 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 7, 2016, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Groff's will return to campus in August (and again in January for those students not on-campus for the fall 2016 semester). Students are responsible to go to Groff's moving truck here on campus to retrieve their items. They will bring all items back to campus on the following dates:

  • Sunday, August 28, 2016, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, January 22, 2017, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Early arrival students, please note: if you are approved to return to campus early, please plan accordingly to have what you need until you can retrieve your belongings.

If you would like to take advantage of Groff's storage option, please complete the Summer Storage Receiving Form below along with the long-term storage rate form. The forms must accompany the packages you submit for storage.

Students can opt to pick up their belongings at the Groff's Moving and Storage warehouse. Students must call Stacey at 717.653.6151/717.653.1357 and set up an appointment for Monday through Friday. There is a $32.00 fee and a minimum 24-hour notice prior to pick up.

Please contact Stacey or Jenna at 717.653.6151/717.653.1357 or email Stacey with any questions you may have.

If these dates do not work with your schedule, you may want to consider storage options #2 or #3.

Note about storage boxes:

Boxes will be made available at the College bookstore for a minimal cost for those using Groff's storage.

Option #2: All College Storage

All College Storage provides the most convenience and flexibility for students' storage needs. With All College Storage, students register and pay online and choose the date and time they wish to have their items picked up and dropped off.

All College Storage will pick up and drop off outside your specific residence hall. Due to the higher level of service with this storage option, All Campus Storage prices are more expensive. Please see more information about this storage solution and their rates by clicking the link below:

Note about storage boxes:

All College Storage provides unlimited packing materials when you sign up.

Option #3: Any of the local self-storage facilities

This option provides the most flexibility for a student or a group of students wanting to store their belongings.  Students are responsible for contacting any of the self-storage facilities to inquire about pricing and make arrangements for storage.
