Shipping and Storage

IC Shipping and Storage

Recognizing that not all students can return to campus at this time, Ithaca College is providing an option where students can elect to have IC staff pack their belongings and store them on-campus until the end of the summer term/fall once provided with a time frame. There will be no cost to have items packed and stored at IC. If you would like some or all of your items shipped home, Ithaca College will cover the first $30 of shipping, and the remainder of the shipping cost will be billed to your student account. You can select this option in the Move Out Registration form in Engage. This form went live Friday, May 22, 2020.

Storage Options

Option A. You, a friend, or a family member are packing your belongings, and need IC to store them

On the Move Out Registration form, select that you or a designee will be coming to pack and that you need IC to store your belongings. You will sign up for a move out time slot based on your Phase. You or your designee will need to bring packing materials. By the end of the move out shift, all boxes or storage containers must:

  • Be labeled with your first and last name
  • Be in good condition (not wet, torn, broken, or falling apart)
  • Weigh no more than 50lbs
  • Be sealed shut with tape

Larger, awkward shaped items like vacuums, shovels, area rugs, do not need to be boxed; they need to be labeled, and loose bits (like a cord) must be taped down. Personal mini-fridges or microfridges must be empty, cleaned, and labeled.

The College will not store open or perishable food items, weapons, alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription drugs, not in your name. These items should be removed, or if found, these items will be disposed of in accordance with Ithaca College policies and state guidelines.

College movers will pick up your boxes and labeled items on another day and move them to the storage area. The Warehouse will send a communication confirming how many boxes and/or larger items are being stored for you. Anything left behind and not labeled will be considered abandoned property, which will be discarded.

Option B. Ithaca College packing and storing your belongings

On the Move Out Registration form, select that you want IC to pack and store your belongings. IC staff will schedule a video conference with you. During that call, you will identify for staff:

  • Which pieces of furniture hold your belongings
  • If loose items on the floor are things you want packed or trash
  • If you filled out the item retrieval form, identify the items to mail
  • Items you would like to donate to the IC food pantry

Staff will label everything identified during the video conference and will pack at a later time. After staff has packed and labeled all items, college movers will move the boxes to storage. The Warehouse will send a communication confirming how many boxes and/or larger items are being stored for you. We anticipate that video conference will start being scheduled for the week of June 15th.

The College will not store open or perishable food items, weapons, alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription drugs, not in your name. If found, these items will be disposed of in accordance with Ithaca College policies and state guidelines.
