Storage will be located in the basement of Bernard Hall.

  • Computers
  • Printers
  • Appliances (i.e. fridges)

If you have computers, etc., please make arrangements with friends to store your items or rent a space from a local storage company. There are storage areas in St. Joseph that rent space.

ALL items must be stored in a box that is taped properly. You can purchase tape and boxes from the Service Counter in the CSB/SJU Bookstores. You may also be able to obtain free boxes from Dining Services or other on-campus/local businesses.
