Store Items with Dorm Room Movers


Reed College has contracted with Dorm Room Movers (DRM) to provide a cost effective storage option for all students. The college is not involved with the registering or pick up/drop off process, but can assist in answering basic questions about Dorm Room Movers - email or with questions.

Spring 2024 Pick Up

Dorm Room Movers will be on campus May 8 - 10 and the morning of May 14 to pick up items that you’d like stored. All storage guidelines, prices and what can and cannot be stored are listed on their website. Students must register themselves with Dorm Room Movers and select a pick up time, which can be done here. DRM will then mail the student boxes and packing supplies for their items - which the student must pack up themselves. An insured DRM mover will meet students outside of their Residence Hall at their scheduled pick up time to collect the items being stored.

Fall 2024 Drop Off

Dorm Room Movers will be on campus August 30 & 31 to drop items back off to students. Students must register a time to retrieve their items on August 30 & 31. A DRM truck will be located as central as possible on campus and students must meet the movers at the truck to collect their belongings. Residence Life will let students know where the truck will be located prior to move in day.


Storage for International and High-need Students

Reed College is happy to offer limited on campus and free storage for students who call another country home and/or qualify as high-need with the Office of Financial Aid. Because of limited space, we are not able to offer on campus storage for students who fall outside of these demographics. Storage space is incredibly limited and given at a first come/first served basis. In the past, we have been able to offer this limited storage to all residents who fall within these demographic groups.

Storage lockers are located in the basement of Sequoia residence hall. Residents hoping to store are responsible for bringings their belongings to the Sequoia west entrace at the beginning of their storage appointment. Storage can take place between 9am - 4pm, Monday - Friday. Storage appointments are not available on the weekends or during holidays that the college is closed.

Our lockers 3' x 3' x 6.5' and store roughly a mini-fridge, three boxes, and a lamp. We do not store furniture as it does not fit in the provided space.

International and Low SES students can email Residence Life to set up an appointment to store their items. Items can be stored for up to two years and Res Life will attempt to contact students after after two years to retreive any remaining items.

Our storage guidelines and the contract can be found here. Please reach out to Res Life if you have any questions!
