***Special Early Move-Out Information - Please Read!

The UPS Store Student Storage Service and Boston University are working together to make this early Move-Out as smooth as possible for BU students.

Please note that Boston University’s highest priority is to leave your room and personal belongings undisturbed.

As was stated in the BU email on March 23, “If we receive public health recommendations and requirements to use your room, we will pack and remove your belongings.”

If BU needs to utilize your room due to a public health recommendation, you will be asked to follow these specific instructions to store, or ship your items to a domestic shipping address, please follow these steps:

Step 1: If you are a new storage customer with The UPS Store, please sign up by click the orange button above that says "Sign up for Student Storage"

Step 2: If you are a previous storage customer with The UPS Store, please sign in and update your contact information.

Step 3: Click on the following link to submit your Storage or Shipping request:

     Storage or Shipping Request Link

What happens after I submit my request
Once you have submitted your request, your personal belongings will be packed up and either placed into storage or shipped to the address you provided in the request form.

Important Note: This process will take some time so we ask that you please be patient. Your request will be processed as soon as possible considering the current difficult circumstances. Massachusetts is currently under a Stay in Place advisory.

If you requested shipping, once your boxes are shipped via UPS you will receive an email with the tracking # of your shipment.

If you requested storage, once your boxes are processed at our warehouse you will be able to login to the customer Portal and see your storage contract. To have your storage returned in the Fall you will request your storage delivery as normal in the Customer Portal by August 1, 2020.

Thank you for your understanding.....

Shipping outside of the Continental United States
International shipping is not available due to many governmental restrictions. BU will pay for the shipping of your personal belongings to an address within the continental United States (US address). Students with permanent international home addresses may choose to ship their personal belongings to a US address or choose storage at this time.
