The University of Colorado Coronavirus Update September 28th 2020


This is Michael, owner of College Student Storage, which is located here in Boulder and started at CU Boulder 24 years ago when I was a student in the business school. CSS is CU Boulders' preferred Summer Storage and Shipping provider for On and Off-campus Students.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:  ALL CU Boulder FRESHMAN On-Campus students and parents-We got you covered!

CSS can help you out with semester storage and shipping services if your school goes to all online classes and closes the CU residence halls. We have PLENTY of boxes, tape, poster tubes, markers, labels, and packing supplies we can deliver to you or your student ahead of time. We can store or ship anything, it doesnt need to go in a box. Plastic bins, snowboards, skis, rugs, bikes, futons, etc.. (including cars).

***Discount**** If the CU residence halls close down at the end of the current quarantine or at the beginning of Thanksgiving Break or from Thanksgiving break for the rest of the year. we will give you $75 off any of our storage services! 

CU Boulder OFF Campus students- If all classes go to all online and the campus shuts down completely and you want to go home and not pay high rents in Boulder, we can help you as well with storage, shipping, and moving services.  Call or email the office with any questions or concerns you may have, we are here for you all year long during these crazy times and this epidemic.  

We don't know what going to happen with the COVID crisis on college campuses. If CU Boulder announces it's going to close all the on-campus residence halls because of COVID and go to completely online, we will immediately post a schedule of when we will be delivering boxes and tape to you on campus to any On-campus students that sign up and need our services and pick up the schedule as well. My guess is all ON campus students will have to bring items curbside because they won't let us into your rooms, if they will, then you will have the option of us coming to your room to pick up your items.
Again we can storage ANYTHING! Including vehicles, plastic bins, rugs, futons, bikes, skis, snowboards, etc. 
We can ship ANYTHING for you and have plenty of custom boxes that we can repack TV's Skies, snowboards, skateboards, etc into at our warehouse for shipping

If you used us over the summer or at any time in 2020, we can re-use your old account info, send us an email and tell us what you need and when. Then you can get boxes and tape either delivered to you or pick them up at the iPhone repair place on the hill.  If you have never used us before, please sign up online ASAP and fill out the signup form

“My daughter used CSS last May, July and August when she moved from Cheyenne Arapaho to a summer apartment and then to Bear Creek. I found the company to be extremely flexible (when my daughter did not have her belongings ready on time), polite, and especially dependable and prompt. Their prices were upfront and communication was very good. I was able to reach someone every time I called, which was extremely important, considering the fact that I was trying to handle these moves from Houston. Their employees were pleasant and dependable. I would definitely use them again. It was a positive experience for both my daughter and myself.”— Carol Jordan
