Other Storage Options

GW does not provide storage on campus. While we recommend Storage Squad, students can choose any company they wish for storage and shipping services. There are numerous vendors in the DC area that do provide storage and many offer their services on campus during the move-out period. As these are all independent companies not affiliated with the university, we recommend researching each company before storing your items with them.

Storage Squad is also the contracted shipping service provider at GW. Before moving in to the dorms for the fall semester students are encouraged to ship items to Storage Squad’s warehouse a few weeks before classes begin. The company will then deliver the items to your room before you arrive if you live in the dorms. Visit Storage Squad’s website to sign up for this service.
