TEMPORARY TRANSITIONAL STORAGE

Temporary storage during the transition times FOR STUDENTS LIVING at HCA OVER THE SUMMER

What is it and why do we have it:

Students who will be living at HCA over the summer often need, at both ends of the HCA summer rental period, a place to store the belongings they will need during the summer.

Storage options during the transitional times – before and after the summer HCA rental period.

  • from the end of SEMESTER II to the beginning of the SUMMER RENTAL PERIOD @ HCA (in May)
  • from the end of SUMMER RENTAL PERIOD @ HCA to the beginning of SEMESTER I (in September)

Who can store where:

Students who will be living in HCA as commercial renters during the summer may temporarily store their belongings during transitional times in one of two places according to where the student will be living in the fall.

  • Students who will be living at HCA in the fall or who are on the Waiting List and using the HCA storage areas maystore their belongings according to the general storage policies and they will be given special access to retrieve the belongings they need for the summer on the day they are to move in to their summer housing and will be permitted to return their belongings to this storage area on the last day of their summer rental time.
  • Students who will be living up campus in the fall or who are storing their belongings in up campus storage areas may store the belongings they will need for the summer in HCA #10 and #18 during these interim transitional times. They are to store these items in this transitional storage area before moving out of their campus housing at the end of the semester (to leave or move into Gummere) and will be given access to retrieve their belongings on the day they are to move in to their summer housing. At the end of the summer, they will be given access to store their belongings until they return for Semester I. All items are to be removed from HCA #10 by 9:00am, the day after classes start.
  • No storage is available during the summer rental period to summer renters.

Important things to know:

  • Students choosing to store belongings in any storage areas, including during the transitional times, acknowledge their responsibility to read, understand, and abide by all storage policies and procedures and the Honor Code.
  • Storage is EXTREMELY limited and on a first-come first serve basis.
  • STORAGE LIABILITY – The College accepts no responsibility whatsoever for any damage to or loss of student property, wherever it is located—including the student storage areas. Students store items entirely upon their own initiative, risk and responsibility. The College will not honor claims made against it for damage or loss.
  • The Storage Program, of which the Transitional Storage Program is a part, is reviewed on a yearly basis and is subject to change.

How to store:

Students agree that all belongings they wish to put in storage for this transitional time will be boxed, labeled, stacked neatly and in accordance with storage policies.

Since space is limited and many students need to use this storage area too please take care when storing your belongings and placing them in the rooms starting from the back to then moving to the front.

Access to the storage areas at HCA during transitional periods: Forthcoming to students living at HCA this summer.
