Packing Up, Moving Out
Where did all that stuff in your room come from? Funny how stuff accumulates over the course of the year, isn't it? Here are some tips for packing and moving your belongings.
Don't pay for boxes--you can find free boxes at all sorts of places. The easiest place to check is Atkins Farms; they leave free boxes by the cash registers daily, so you can help yourself. Grocery and liquor stores are also good places to inquire about boxes; they're often glad to have someone take them away. Try checking at Duplications (library ground floor) as well!
Students may store up to three boxes on campus. Storage policies can be found on the residence life website, as well as information about where you will store your items (based on where you are living next year). Contact the housing operations office at x5453 for storage hours. For students who will be living off-campus, there is no summer storage space available.
