Residence Life Policies

Storage Guidelines

Academic Year Storage

  • Based on the Blue Book Regulations, the only storage of items permitted during the academic year are for empty boxes, crates, luggage, tubs, etc - items you used to transport your stuff to campus.
  • No personal belongings can be stored during the academic year as all of your personal belongings should fit in your room. If they do not fit in your room you need to either send them home or find a different space for them outside of College storage.
  • All items must be labeled with a College Storage Label and logged into storage by your RA.
  • Storage can only be accessed by an RA, the Director of Residence Life, or (if you are an international student using storage on the platform) the International Student Advisor. Storage appointments must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance and are only available during designated times.
  • You may only store items in the hall in which you currently live.
  • The College and its officers, employees, and agents assume no responsibility for the loss, damage, or destruction of personal property kept or stored in the residence hall. The college recommends that a student’s property be insured under her own individual homeowner’s/renter’s policy.

WWC Seasonal Storage Expectations

       Only things needed throughout the semester permitted. If needed less than twice a year, use long term storage in Prentis loft (see Summer Storage regulations above).

       Everything must be clearly labeled with resident name.

       All items should be in closed containers - no plastic bags, grocery bags, etc.

       No furniture or empty boxes permitted. Those must go to long term storage. There is no storage of college-issued furniture at any time in any storage room.

       We ask that each resident keep no more than 6 items in this room at any time.

       All belongings must be removed from storage (& every other community spaces) at the time of your departure from the college.

       Seasonal storage is unlocked at all times so that any resident can access their belongings as needed - please do not store precious items in this space.

       All residents are expected to respect each other's belongings. Adding/removing items from storage should always be done by the resident, never by children.

       The room should be kept tidy and orderly at all times.

       Use of any storage space is at the resident's own risk. The College and its officers, employees, and agents assume no responsibility for the loss, damage, or destructions of personal property kept or stored in the residence hall. The college recommends that a student’s property be insured under her own individual homeowner’s/renter’s policy.

 Storage will be audited at the beginning and end of each semester. Any items left in storage for a semester beyond their expected date out of storage will be removed at owner’s expense. Any violations of the storage policy will be charged back to the student.
