Shipping

For students who would like to ship their items we will begin taking requests on Tuesday, September 8. Students will need to complete this form, and Residence Life will send an email with next steps about the process. We may not be able to ship all items in storage, so students should have an alternative plan for those items. This may include rugs, furniture, office items, and other miscellaneous items. We will communicate with students the shipping estimate before shipping items. Please note that students also assume all financial responsibility for shipping items which will be billed to their student account once items have been shipped.

Students on Leave 

For students who have decided not to return to Reed for the academic year but have their items on campus, Residence Life will store all items for the duration of this academic year. Students can return for the 2021-2022 academic year to claim their items. For students who plan not to return, Residence Life will reach out Spring 2021 to discuss next steps. 

Donations 

For students who would like their items donated please contact the Residence Life office. 

Guests

Students are allowed to bring one guest to campus in order to help them pack or retrieve their belongings. Students are responsible for ensuring that their guest knows and complies with College policies and Housing Contract regulations, must be present while their guest is on campus, and are responsible for their guest’s actions and behaviors. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in action. This policy is applicable in all campus housing, including apartments. Guests must wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing guidelines as outlined by the college, Multnomah County Health Department, and the Oregon Health Authority.

 

Summer 2020 COVID Storage Plan 

Reed College's COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan: important information on the COVID-19 pandemic and the college's prevention and response plan. 

Residence Life has created a temporary storage process for students to collect personal belongings from Reed campus after their abrupt departure due to COVID-19. More in-depth information about the storage process can be found below. Now that Multnomah county has entered Phase I of re-opening, we are accepting requests for students to come back to campus in order to retrieve their belongings. Students are required to submit a form a minimum of one week prior to their desired arrival on campus. Due to COVID-19, we are limiting the number of people permitted to return to campus at one time; your appointment time slot will be confirmed via email by Residence Life. Appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis and everyone is expected to adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines as outlined by Multnomah County Health Department, and the Oregon Health Authority.
