Due to space limitations, Facilities can offer storage to students in specific situations. Please read on to see if you qualify, and if not, we still have storage suggestions for you.


  • Monday - Fridays  9:30am – 11:45am and 12:45pm - 2:30pm
  • Call 609-258-8000 when you arrive at your appropriate location during our open hours
  • When access to storage is limited:
    • Storage is closed when the University is officially closed, e.g. holidays, snow days, etc.
    • Storage typically closes on the last day of exams in the spring due to our reunion and commencement event support



  1. Timing is everything - please PLAN your dropoff to our admittedly limited hours, before you're rushing to catch your train/plane/bus/car
  2. You provide the boxes, we'll provide you with labels when you bring your items to storage

    Other storage suggestions

    The 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. Bicycles may also be stored for a fee when brought to a drop-off point.

    If you decide you no longer need some items, skip storage altogther and give your stuff a second life by donating it during Move Out. Nearly everything is reusable and initiatives such as the EcoRep/Pace Move out and the Graduate Student Furniture Drive make donating easy.
