Your Microfridge is delivered to and picked-up directly from your room! This not only saves you space and trouble on move-in day, but also eliminates the need to store such a large item during summer break.

Storage Squad

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. They accept reservations online and offer packing supplies (e.g. boxes and tape), pickup, and delivery storage services to on and off campus locations as well as domestic shipping via UPS ground.  See a quick 30 second video explaining their service here.

Summer and Study Abroad Storage Pricing

Stored items are priced individually based on size per storage term (i.e. summer, semester, or 4 month term).  You can visit to use their price estimating tool.

Early Delivery to Residence Halls

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