Summer Trunk Room Storage | University of Portland

Summer Trunk Room Storage

UP conveniently offers students summer storage in our residence halls. We know that many UP students fly to school from far away, or just don't want to have to move bulky dorm fridges and bedding home to store all summer. Every UP residence hall is conveniently equipped with a trunk room (storage room) in the basement.

For $200 students are able to store the following for the entire summer:

  • One mini-fridge
  • One microwave
  • Up to three 27-gallon bins or the equivalent sized boxes or other items

Boxes and bins will vary in size, but the dimensions of one 27-gallon bin are approximately 21 inches X 31 inches X 14 inches. See example below. Reasonably similar sized boxes may also be used.

Signing Up

For Summer 2024, students will reserve trunk room space through their Hall Director.


For Summer 2024, Hall Directors will share a link so that students can pay. The link is also available below. Students can pay anytime, even before reserving a space through their Hall Director. The payment will need to be made before students move their items into the trunk rooms.

Important Notes

  • Studying abroad: each term of storage costs $200 (summer, fall, or spring), so students may store their items for the summer plus another semester for $400 total.
  • Items will be removed or donated if left behind beyond the term that a student has paid to store them for. 
  • Individual Hall Directors set trunk room opening times and students must coordinate with them to drop off and collect their items.
