Retrieving Items Stored in Spring 2020

For students returning to campus to live with us in Fall 2021:

  • You will have the ability to access storage after you check in during your predetermined time slot during returning student move-in on Aug 27
  • After checking in at the PAB, please make your way to wherever your items have been stored. You have received an email to your Reed.edu account, or whatever most recent email we have on file for you, with information about which residence hall your items have been stored in
  • Access to storage is limited to 9am - 4pm on Aug 27
  • As a reminder, you are allowed one support person inside of the residence halls to help you move your things. You and your support person must wear a mask while inside the residence halls
  • If you have pre-arranged and alternative arrival date with residence life other than Aug 27 and wish to retrieve your items, please email res-life@reed.edu to request a storage appointment
    • Requests must be made at least 7 days in advance of when you wish to retrieve your items
    • Storage retrieval can take place between 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday

For students wishing to retrieve their items, but who are not living with us in Fall 2021

  • Please reach out to res-life@reed.edu to schedule a time to retrieve your items
  • Requests must be made at least 7 days in advance of when you wish to retrieve your items
  • Storage retrieval can take place between 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday
  • As a reminder, you are allowed one support person inside of the residence halls to help you move your items. You and your support person must wear a mask while inside the residence halls

Storage for International and Low-SES Students

There is limited space available for students who call another country home or students who are experiencing financial hardship. If you identify with one of these groups, please indicate your interest in storage via this form. Please note that space is limited and completing the form does not guarantee a storage space.

Storage Alternatives 

Other Alternatives: If students or families wish to contract with another mobile storage provider this year, that will be allowed, but please email community-safety@reed.edu to let us know when your unit will be delivered to campus, and please arrange to have it delivered to the Grove Parking Lot (5380 SE 28th Ave., Portland, OR 97202). Units found in other parking lots will be towed to the Grove Lot at student/family expense. Please do not plan on having your unit sit on campus for more than 10 days, as that may attract unwanted attention, and units are not difficult to burglarize.

Future of Storage - Fall 2021

We recognize this may be inconvenient this year, but are happy to announce that starting in the 2021-22 academic year we will be partnering with an outside storage company which will be able to offer more options to students. More information about the process for next year will be shared during Fall semester.
