Due to space limitations, on-campus storage is only available to students in very specific situations (see below). Please ensure you qualify for on-campus storage with the appropriate department BEFORE you bring any items to the storage locations. We only provide storage to students on a list provided to us from the appropriate, responsible department (see below, new as of January 2019). 

If you do not qualify for the on-campus storage situations below, Princeton University Student Agencies, Moving and Storage, 609-258-4906, is a fantastic storage option. They will pick up your items, store them, and deliver them to your dormitory in the fall for a fee. Bicycles may also be stored for a fee when brought to a drop-off point. Also, Undergraduate Housing maintains a list of University-approved storage providers to ensure the safety and privacy of all residents, as well as the preservation of campus grounds and facilities.

If you decide you no longer need some items, skip storage altogether by participating in various Sustainability programs and give your items a second life by donating during move out.
