Storage Squad

Storage Squad is the official storage and shipping partner of Brandeis University. Students are encouraged to store and/or ship their items with Storage Squad over the summer or while studying abroad. It accepts reservations online and offer packing supplies (e.g., boxes and tape), pick-up and delivery storage services to on- and off-campus locations, as well as domestic shipping via UPS ground.  See a quick video explaining its services.

Summer and Study Abroad Storage Pricing

Stored items are priced individually based on size per storage term (i.e., summer, semester or four-month term). You can visit Storage Squad to use its price estimating tool.

Early Delivery to Residence Halls

The contract with Storage Squad includes an early delivery escort service, known as Pre-Arrival Delivery, at the start of the fall semester for students living on campus. Campus officials escort Storage Squad crew members into the residence halls to deliver stored items so items are waiting for students when they arrive. Other storage companies are not permitted to deliver items early.

GradGuard Insurance

As noted in your housing agreement, Brandeis is not liable for damages or loss that occur to the personal property of students. Examples include losses resulting from fires, smoke, burst pipes, theft, vandalism, sprinkler head discharges and more. In these scenarios, campus residents are financially responsible for replacing their own personal belongings if they do not have adequate insurance coverage.

GradGuard College Renter’s Insurance is a smart investment for college students and their families. With the plan, personal items that are stolen or damaged by a covered cause of loss can be replaced, subject to a $100 deductible. GradGuard also protects students financially from large-scale, unintentional damage they may cause to their residence hall due to fire, sprinkler discharges and more.

Features of GradGuard College Renters Insurance for students include: 

  • Theft and fire protection: For your laptop, bicycle, cell phone, etc.
  • No credit checks: A low ($100) deductible, and no penalties for filing claims.
  • Worldwide coverage: Your belongings can be covered anywhere in the world.
  • Liability protection: Coverage if you accidentally damage your place of residence due a fire or flood.
  • Replacement cost endorsement: If your old property is stolen, you can be covered for a similar version.
  • Preferred rates and more!
