The document below answers some frequently asked questions as well as provides an idea of what to pack when you are making your transition to living on campus. Additionally, the document contains links to Facilities Management regarding requesting loft kits, ladders and micro-fridges.

Storage Information

DePauw University has a limited number of storage boxes available for rent to students who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Renters must be a current and continuing student at DePauw. (Withdrawn or students on Leave of Absence are not eligible)
  • Renters must have lived or be living in University owned housing (i.e. residence halls, UOAH, NOT Greek chapter houses) in at least one of the adjacent semesters.
  • Renters must be away from campus (studying abroad, internship, at home) during the period of storage rental.
  • Renters must live at least 500 miles from Greencastle.
  •  After the last day of classes, any remaining storage units will be available on a first come-first served basis to any student who meets the above criteria but lives less than 500 miles from campus.

Campus Living & Community Development will begin taking reservations following spring break. Upon signing a contract in the CLCD office in Anderson Street Hall other rules and restrictions will be discussed with you.

Cleaning Checklists

If you are moving out of your assignment in the Residence Halls, Rector Village or in the University-Owned Apartments and Houses, it is important to keep in mind that your living space needs to be returned to the condition that it was found upon your check-in. Below are examples of cleaning-related tasks that need to be completed to assist you in your planning as well as facilitate conversations among roommates.
