It is amazing what is accumulated over the course of a school year, and many students may not wish to haul everything
back and forth. Those students who will not be coming back to the residence halls next year might look up one of the many privately operated storage facilities in the Eugene/Springfield area, in the phone book or online.
Current residents returning to the residence halls for the next academic year
can store some of their belongings at the university to avoid taking more home
than necessary. Summer storage is offered only to students who are still living
in the residence halls during finals week in June, and who have reserved a space
in the residence halls for the academic year. Because space is limited,
storage will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis and students'
room reservations will be checked when they store their luggage.
Although every security effort will be made, the university will not be responsible for articles lost, stolen, or damaged while in storage.
Therefore, students should carry their own insurance on the items they store. Some may already have coverage through an insurance policy. Items of special
value to students should not be stored with us during the summer.
In order to maintain the best possible security, once the summer storage room
locks in June, it will not be opened again until the halls open in September.
This means that students will not be able to pick up items during the summer,
so they should pack carefully.

Any items not
picked up will be disposed of after one year, and students will be charged a
Additionally, students' boxes or luggage must be locked or securely wrapped and tied. Students must show complete name,
forwarding address, and student ID number on each item as well as on the storage agreement provided by University Housing.
The minimum charge is $45 for one item or 14 cubic feet of space and $1 per cubic foot of space over the initial 14 cubic feet. If a wardrobe trunk
is larger than 14 cubic feet, the minimum charge will apply, providing it is the only parcel checked. Bicycles will be counted as one item.
When residents store their items, they will be given a form describing the items stored and the charge for storage. The charge will be billed to the student's UO account. A copy of the form will also be available in the fall when
students pick up their belongings.
In order to make room for summer residents and to complete necessary residence hall improvements, items stored in student rooms, hallway closets, and hall storage rooms
will be discarded.
