May’s Most Frequently Asked Questions

Summer Storage

Limited storage space is available on campus in university storage rooms on a first-come, first-serve basis. No more than 2 personal items may be stored.  Only luggage, footlockers, metal garbage cans, and refrigerators that have been properly defrosted may be stored. Storage space is not guaranteed.  All containers should be properly labeled with:

  1. Student name
  2. Date stored
  3. Residence hall and room for fall occupancy
  4. Permanent address/phone

UPS Store Storage Services

While there are many local storage facilities around campus, the UPS Store is Vanderbilt’s preferred vendor for shipping and storage.  For your safety, only UPS has the privilege to enter the residence halls for pick-up or delivery to students. Other moving vendors must be accompanied by the student to enter the residence halls.

 The UPS Store will come onto campus, sell boxes and packing supplies, and either ship boxes home or hold them in storage and re-deliver to students in the fall. Dates/times/location for selling boxes and supplies (and other services) are below. It is the responsibility of the students to deliver their packed boxes to specified areas for pick-up, shipping, or storage over the summer. Items stored through this service are redelivered to designated areas on specified dates in the fall.
