Storage Terms (click to view)

The Department of Public Safety maintains a storage facility for students' personal belongings. This facility is intended for use by Middlebury College undergraduates who will be away from the college for the summer, or for few terms not to exceed 18 months. This storage area does not have climate controls, and the college is not responsible for any damage caused by cold, heat, humidity, insects, or rodents. When a student withdraws or graduates from the college, all items must be removed from college storage at that time of withdrawal or before leaving campus following commencement.

All items to be stored by a student will be received at one time and will be stored collectively. Upon returning to campus, the student must retrieve all his/her items at one visit during the scheduled storage hours. Check the Public Safety storage web page periodically as updated storage hours will be posted.
