Storage for CMU Departments

The university's central storage facility has extra shelf space to store items for CMU departments. Items should be prepared and delivered to the warehouse. Stored items should be placed on a pallet and must fit into a shelf space measuring 48” long x 48” wide x 63” tall. The rate for each pallet is $16.98 per month. If items need to be picked up, please submit a service request for an administrative or academic building. Pickup fees will be charged at current truck driver hourly rates. CMU's School of Drama also has dedicated space at the warehouse separate from our central receiving area -- for Drama-related item storage, please contact the School of Drama directly.

Specialty Freight Shipping

Specialty freight shipping services are available for palletized items through the XPO logistics company. The freight is billed by weight, and invoices are issued one month after the shipment. Payment must be made using department Oracle charge codes. Work orders are required for pickup of pallets to be shipped. To make a request, submit a service request for an administrative or academic building, and then email your work order information to Regular mailing and small packages should be shipped through CMU's Postal Services
