The end of the semester is fast approaching, and before we know it students will be on summer break. With the amount of “stuff” students collect over a year it can be tricky getting your student’s belongings home and then back to Mason again in the fall. The UPS Store, however, is able to help!
The UPS Store, conveniently located in Merten Hall on the Fairfax campus, offers a summer storage program so you won’t have to haul all of your student’s belongings away for the summer. As part of the program, your student would pack all items he or she would like to have stored and we will pick them up in front of his or her residence hall between May 7 and May 14. All belongings will be stored in a safe and secure warehouse over the summer and will be delivered back to Mason in the fall.
The Basic Storage Plan costs $249 and includes up to five 18x18x18 boxes and a roll of packing tape. Encourage your student to sign up before April 20 to receive a $15 discount! Upon payment at The UPS Store, your student will receive the boxes and tape, a packing tip sheet, and in inventory sheet. The inventory sheet must be filled out and returned to us at the time of pick-up. Please be aware that retrieving anything from storage is costly so students should plan not to pack anything they may need over the summer, such as important papers or passports.
We even offer storage for large items such as TVs and mini refrigerators! Visit gmustorage.com and click on the “summer storage” tab for more detailed information on the various storage packages, additional charges for storing large items, and sign up for the service. Your student can also stop by The UPS Store in Merten Hall to register for the storage program.
As an alternative to our storage program, or if you have a student that is graduating, we also offer pack and ship services. We are experts in packing and shipping to all destinations, including international locations, and would be happy to help your student ship their belongings. Our pack and ship guarantee assures your packages will arrive safely and on time.
Encourage your student to visit gmustorage.com, call 703-865-5544, or stop by our location in Merten Hall for more information on all services the UPS Store offers!
