Due to space limitations, on-campus storage is only available to students in very specific situations (see 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.

To ensure the safety and privacy of all residents as well as the preservation of campus grounds and facilities, Undergraduate Housing maintains a list of University-approved storage providers.

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