About Us

College Student Storage is a storage, shipping and moving company located in Boulder, CO. Since opening its doors in 1996, CSS has offered its services to college students and families who live both on and off campus, all year long.

Owned and operated by a former CU student, we've helped over 10,000 college students in Colorado—our experience speaks volumes, but it's nothing compared to the happy students and parents. You can hear from a few of them on our testimonials page.

Our Promise

We believe in building our company through hard work, dedication and trust. For the last 20 years, we have been committed to offering students quality customer service with superior results. We believe in our community, which is why both our office and warehouse are located in Boulder. We do all of our own moving, storage and shipping in-house and never use subcontractors like many large organizations.

All of our team members are part of the community and the schools we serve. With CSS, you’ll always know who is helping you move, store or ship your belongings. We are not here to slap you with hidden fees and extra costs, we are here to make moving in and out of your dorm or residence as pain-free as possible.

We are committed to providing students with the absolute highest standards in customer service resulting in personal satisfaction. We look forward to assisting you with your moving, storage and shipping needs. For more, please visit our testimonials page.

Live outside of Colorado?

We make moving easy for parents and students who live outside of Colorado!

Why Go Local?

When it comes to storage and moving services, local is always better. Online-only storage companies don't usually own or manage the services they sell, they act as brokers between you an a storage company, so you'll never really know what to expect. When you store your belongings with CSS, you know exactly what you're getting.

CSS is here for your entire college career—on campus and off. From storage, to moving and shipping, CSS is your answer!
