DU 2020 On-campus students and parents: 

This is Michael, owner of College Student Storage.

DU housing and an administrator, in the office of the Vice-Chancellor, Mohammed Lotif  and Vice-Chancellor Liliana Rodriguez have decided to use just one company to move items out of the DU residence halls. There were about 800 plus DU students who have left items in the rooms and many of them will need moved out of the halls. They have excluded CSS in this decision as an option for DU parents and students. They have not explained their decisionto me or ever talked to me ahead of time about this "bid process" and they have excluded CSS this year even though we have been offering our services at DU for the past 20 years and literally have helped over thousands of DU students and parents at that time. The company they chose to only go into the DU residence halls this year has only been in business for 5 years and is owned by a former DU alumni. Instead of giving DU parents and students a choice, and using several companies in the massive move out and pack up operation, they chose just one company and gave just that company info to DU students and parents, excluding CSS in the process. Call or emaiDU Housing to let them know they excluding us for no good reason and crippling a local small business.
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 daily 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. 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.
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.
Dan Elliott- Office Manager
Michael Shelhamer- Owner of CSS


We can move, store or ship ANYTHING throughout the year for you!
