University of Denver Coronavirus Update April 1st


If we have already picked up your items this past week please disregard this pickup schedule and future emails on this topic from now till school lets out I'm sorry but you're on a generic email list for all signed up DU customers who are signed up this year.
This is Michael, owner of College Student Storage, I wanted to let you know we are trying to get the school to let us do in-room pack ups for University of Denver students and parents who have items left in the residence halls because the school told them to pack up there rooms, leave the stuff there and go home taking only your vital things when this epidemic hit. I know many of you don't want to travel back to Colorado to pack up your dorm rooms with the Coronavirus epidemic going on
We have sent out numerous emails to DU housing administrators and other DU depts. and I am waiting to hear back. We know they are holding off on doing anything until they stay at home order is lifted here in Colorado. We would like to work with DU housing on this and coordinate with the directors of each residence hall or RA's on the student's floor to go into students' rooms to pack them up or if the room is packed up, move items into storage or ship them home for you. CSS is licensed and insured
We need your help in telling the school that CSS would be a great option for many of you that live out of state who need items picked up or packed up out of the residence hall rooms. So far we have not heard anything from the school. I have emailed and called and directly met with the head of DU housing. There is only so much I can do. We need you to call or email the DU  housing and Residence life depts to tell them you want CSS to pack up or pick up the items out of your rooms and store or ship them for you. We have all the logistics, supplies and insurances in place and are ready to go. 
We are planning on doing these in-room pack ups once a week for DU students and parents if the school will let us. That way we are not constantly coming in and out of the residence halls on a daily basis, and there is no rush to get this done, we have plenty of time between now and school letting out. We also are offering pickups for DU students and parents that come back to campus and pack up their rooms and need summer storage or shipping services.
When we do these in-room pick ups we will bring boxes and tape, pack up students' residence hall rooms and either put items in storage or ship them home for you. We will also facetime with the student and or parent while packing up the room. We also have custom boxes for TV's and can store or ship anything
CSS is a door to door service, we will deliver all storage items to DU students in August-September before school starts back up, where ever they live on or off-campus 
I will update this schedule once we hear back from DU housing, along with pick up dates and steps to take. Also, we will continue to send out emails to signed up DU students and parents.
There are still many DU parents and students that have items still left in the residence hall rooms and need our help. If you have friends or know DU parents that need our help, please tell them about CSS.
For students staying in Denver until school ends at the beginning of June- We will post our normal box delivery and pick up schedule for on and off-campus students in mid-May. Don't worry, we have you covered on whatever day you need items picked up for summer storage, shipping, and moving services. Right now we're working on all the DU on-campus students and parents that need our help moving out of the residence halls because of the coronavirus epidemic.
We are going to keep you updated with emails to signed up parents and students, Instagram (collegestudentstorage), CSS Facebook page post. Also, I will re-make the DU pick-up schedule for all on and off-campus students as we move forward as this situation changes.
Dan and I are here every day dealing with this crisis at all 8 of the colleges CSS provides services at. Ideally, if you need to reach us, email works best, we are getting crushed on the phones. I know you all have questions and concerns, we're working on all the details. We are here all Spring and Summer long to field your emails and phone calls. Understand WE ARE READY TO HELP YOU and have all the logistics in place. We both have been doing this for 24 years! You're in good hands. We are working on this on a daily basis and trying to figure out what schedule will work best for you and our staff and trying to work with DU Housing. The best thing you can do if you need our services again this year is to sign up at and register. That way you’ll receive our email updates. It’s a $45 deposit. If you don’t use our services, the $45 will be refunded to you.
If you know other DU  parents or students that are in this tough situation and need summer storage or shipping services, please tell them to sign up at and get registered, we can help them.
PS- We store cars indoors throughout the summer as well.

Michael Shelhamer- Owner of CSS

“CSS was very helpful and was an amazing service for an out of state student. It made it really easy to pack, move and store my stuff for the next year at CU. I really don't think CU should monopolize packing companies. CSS doesn't even come into your dorm. They wait outside with their truck and load your stuff for storage. If you did not allow CSS to reach out to CU students, it would be doing CU a great disservice.” — Lori Olson
