Does ODS Distribute Packing Materials?

Yes! Not only do we hand out packing materials the ODS Box is the largest box (24" x 18" x 18") in student storage. The ODS Box is a beast and can fit tons of stuff in it. On ODS Box Day we will be on campus in select locations handing out boxes, tape, mattress bags, etc. As long as you are signed up for a pickup date/time the boxes are free. Other materials may have additional charges at certain locations.
