Warehousing Guidelines

Warehouse space is at a premium on campus. There are two storage areas: the Upper Level of Building J on Mountaintop Campus and the fourth and fifth floors of the Service Building at Fourth and Adams Streets.

Building J

Building J is used as a storage area for a variety of items. The building is alarmed and secure. “Caged” areas and much of the open area is leased annually by various departments, including Dining Services, Residential Services, Conference Services, Library and Technology Services, and ATLSS, all of whom pay a fixed, monthly charge for the total square footage within their respective areas. There is a very limited amount of space available to other University departments for temporary storage on a pre-arranged basis.

If you are in need of storage (short or long-term), contact Glenn Strause in Printing and Mailing Services at X83109 to determine if space is available. Advise how much space is required and the expected duration. Do not make shipping arrangements to the J Building warehouse with your department's surplus, or with suppliers' or donors' materials until you've discussed space availability with Sharon. Shipments will be turned away at the door if space is unavailable.

Storage space is charged on a monthly basis. The cost per square foot is $.53. Labor/forklift charges are $1.30 per minute with a minimum charge of $25.

Service Building

The surplus storage floor of the Service Building is managed by Facilities Planning & Renovations. It holds surplus items available for re-use at no charge to the general campus.

If there is a particular type of furniture item you wish to inquire about, please contact Facilities Planning to inquire about its availability or to schedule a "shopping trip." Additionally, if you have surplus furniture purchased with University funds, you can arrange to have it moved from your department to the Service Building. Furniture purchased with department funds can be assessed as to its current market value.
