Student Storage Services with UPS Store

Tufts University has partnered with The UPS Store Student Storage Service to make move-out (and move-in) easy and stress-free by providing convenient on-campus drop off locations for summer storage and UPS shipping solutions.

The UPS Store will be set up at different locations on campus during the week of move-out to hand out free supplies for storage customers, take incoming storage, or ship your items home!

Spring 2020 Storage and Shipping Information

The Office of Residential Life and Learning has partnered with UPS to provide shipping and storage options at a low cost for students currently in University housing. For students on the Medford-Somerville campus, UPS trailers will be brought to campus on Thursday afternoon (March 12) to assist with shipping and storage needs. For students living in our Beacon St. residence halls in Brookline, staff will be available in 1047 Beacon St. to be able to offer shipping and packing supplies and services.

Representatives from The UPS Store Storage Service will be present on the Tufts Medford-Somerville and Beacon St campuses to assist with students interested in shipping their items home. Students who are interested in shipping items home will need to bring items to these drop-off points or set up an in-hall pick-up for shipping with UPS, to move forward with shipping.
