Moving and Storage Options

Many of the students spend their summers away from Carnegie Mellon University and Pittsburgh, so families often ask about moving and storage options. Residential Education’s limited on-campus storage space has been allocated for the summer months. For those still in need of summer storage, below is a partial list of companies that provide moving and storage options for CMU students. Please note that none of these companies are endorsed or vetted by the university nor provide sponsorship, but are listed as a service to students and families looking for local resources.
