Student Storage

Read more about the Student Storage.

The program aims to provide a convenient and secure option for student storage needs:
  • Items will be picked up from a designated location on campus,
  • Moved to a secure off-campus facility for storage, and then
  • Returned to a designated location on campus upon cancellation.

Note: As of 2022, our facility at 7835 Trade Street is nearing maximum capacity and cannot accommodate any more student storage crates for Summer 2022. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. For options and recommendations outside of UCSD, please submit a case to the STORE team on UC San Diego Services and Support.

Sign up.

As a result of recent events surrounding COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, we are accepting applications for our 2020 Student Storage program early. If you would like to participate, please complete this survey by noon on Friday, March 20th. The program will take place between March 23rd and March 27th

Upon completion of this survey we will send a follow-up communication to accepted participants regarding program logistics.  All storage crates will be stored at UCSD's Central Receiving warehouse, located at 7835 Trade Street Suite 100, San Diego, CA 92124.

Determine the items that you will need to store for the summer.

We have two (2) different sized crates available:

4'x4'x2' - Recommended for storing clothing, books, bedding materials, other smaller items and appliances.

4'x4'x4' - Recommended for storing the above mentioned, plus any mini-fridges, TVs, larger appliances, etc

If you’re unsure of how much space you’ll need, try to pack your items into cardboard boxes first and measure them. We recommend packing items into boxes to place inside the crates ahead of time, and keeping notes of what you are storing. Loose items are discouraged.

Sign your storage contract, and provide payment

Once you are selected to participate in the Student Storage Program you will receive communication with a contract. This contract must be completed and emailed back to Student Storage before your drop off window.

Initial payment will be accepted via credit card only. Monthly payments will be auto-drafted each month until cancellation is requested by the individual listed on the storage contract.

Bring your items to the drop-off location

Bring your items to the drop-off location during your allotted time window. Participants have the option to have a crate delivered to campus for $73 or to fill a crate at 7835 Trade Street, Ste. 100 at no additional cost. Upon your arrival at the drop-off location or 7835 Trade Street, a crate ID will be assigned.

Please Note: All items for storage should be previously packed into a container before loading. Loose items are discouraged. Logistics Staff will not be available to enter dorms or move items for you, and will not be able to assist with loading your crate at the drop-off site. Once you’re done, we’ll seal the lid on and stage it for transportation.
