Summer Storage & Shipping

Exclusive Storage and Shipping

If you are looking for information about room delivery or pickup of your storage, please click the pickup button at right.

BSA partners with Storage Center to offer students an exclusive storage and shipping deal. In May, Storage Center will be on campus selling supplies and taking items for storage and shipping. All belongings are stored in a secure climate-controlled facility for the summer until return to campus in the Fall. Storage Center brings back all possessions and minimizes the work for students.

Storage Center is the official storage provider for Brown University, and provides discount rates for students. And this year, storing is easier than ever for students, because Storage Center has developed a new online interface for sign-up. Each student will create a profile, and then sign-up, choose pick-up times, and pay—all within minutes. With the profile feature, students will be able to login at any point to edit their information or check on the location of their items.

This year, Storage Center is offering FREE room delivery in the fall to students who sign up by May 4th!

On-campus Locations

Storage Center will again set up three main on-campus locations for students to drop off items.

  1. Charlesfield & Thayer (near Watson Institute)
  2. Brown & Benevolent (Keeney Quad)
  3. Meeting Street (in front of the V-Dub)

Storage Center will be on campus April 26th to May 10th to sell boxes and packing supplies at the three main locations. They will be at these locations each weekday for a 2 hour time period. In particular:

  1. Brown & Benevolent – 10:00 am to 12:00 noon
  2. Charlesfield & Thayer – 12:30 pm to 2:30 p.m
  3. Meeting Street – 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Storage Center will then be on campus starting May 15th through May 18th to accept items. If none of these dates work for you, please contact Storage Center to arrange a different pick-up time and indicate your preferences when signing up online.

Online Registration

All students must reserve online his/her desired drop-off location from one of three locations and what time of the day is most convenient -- either morning or afternoon. Other drop-off locations are also listed on the website if needed. Free curbside pick-up is available for all locations, so for students in locations far from the three drop-off points, a special pick-up can be arranged.

To sign up for summer storage, students will create an online profile on Storage Center’s student website. They will then login to their profile, choose their preferred pick-up time/date and storage options, and pay. To edit their information at any time, students can log in using their profile information.
