Storage in Apple Hall
If you meet the above requirement for Apple Storage, please complete the storage request form below. Requests will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis; storage space is limited. Note: Furniture is not permitted in storage rooms!
You will be notified whether or not you may store items in Apple Hall storage by the Friday of the following week and have until the last day of classes to accept or decline storage. If accepted, you will be able to take your items to storage the week of final examinations. If you do not respond accepting storage by 5:00 p.m. on the appointed Friday, your storage slot may be bumped, as there is always a waiting list. You will not necessarily be notified of being bumped in advance.
Storing your Items
Upon arriving to store your items, please make sure you do the following:
- Bring your email response stating that you have storage rights.
- Be prepared to place your items in a 3'x3' space. Piling may go as high as you wish.
Retrieving your Items
You must retrieve all of your stored items within a week of the first day of classes. Details will be forthcoming on how and when to arrange to retrieve your items. Access to storage outside of scheduled hours is extremely limited and is dependent on staff availability.
Please note: we do not provide carts, hand trucks, or any assistance with moving your belongings. Items cannot be left in Apple storage throughout the semester/year if the student is present on campus. Access will only be granted to Apple storage at the beginning and end of each semester. Numerous trips to add/remove items during the semester will not be permitted. Staff in the Office of Residential & First-Year Programs will inventory storage and contact residents about retrieving their items that are left in storage. Items not picked up from storage after numerous attempts have been made to contact the student about picking up their items will be considered abandoned and may be either be donated or discarded without further notice.
