The University of Denver Coronavirus Update September 1st 2020


CSS is DU's preferred Summer storage, semester storage, and shipping provider for On and Off-campus Students.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:  ALL DU FRESHMAN On-Campus students and parents- We can help you out with semester storage and shipping services if your school goes to all online classes and closes your residence halls during the school year. We have PLENTY of boxes, tape, poster tubes, markers, labels, and packing supplies we can deliver to you ahead of time. We can store or ship anything, it doesnt need to go in a box (including cars).

CSU 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 Denver, 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.  


*****DU STUDENTS AND PARENTS $100 off Any of our Storage Services to any DU student that needs semester storage from Sept 1st 2020- May 1st 2021******

We don't know what going to happen with the COVID crisis on college campuses. If DU 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 On-campus students that sign up and need our services and a 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 DU campus completely shuts down and you need our services, we are here for you. Some of you may want to go home and not pay expensive rents in Denver and take classes online from home. 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. We will deliver boxes and tape directly to your on or off-campus address.  If you have never used us before, please sign up online ASAP and fill out the signup form

We are keeping you updated with emails to signed up parents and students, Instagram (collegestudentstorage), CSS Facebook page post, and updates on our homepage of the website and the DU school scheduling page on our website.

Side Note to ALL DU 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 decided to use just one company to move items out of the DU residence halls last year in March and April when the school shut down because of COVID. There were about 800 plus DU students who had left items in the rooms. They excluded CSS in this decision as an option for DU parents and students, even though we have moved, stored, and shipped well over 4000 DU students in the past 15 years. They have not explained their decision to me or ever talked to me ahead of time about this "bid process" and they have excluded CSS info this year online under the resources tab at DU 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 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 email DU Housing to let them know they excluding us for no good reason and crippling a local small business and also screwing you as a consumer by giving you only one choice when using these services. .

“To whom it may concern: I used CSS last year to put my things in storage and to ship things back home. The were reliable and organized. The materials they provided were very helpful. It would have been even more helpful if they had been able to help me with my things, but they were not allowed to go inside the dorms. I understand the liability issues, but after using their service last year I believe they are trustworthy and can handle providing the student body with storage and shipping options. Also, CU should choose CSS as the storage company they support because they have provided reliable service in the past and the owner graduated from CU!” — Lee Scheer
