Storage Solutions for MIT Students

Every May, when classes end, students leave Cambridge to study, complete internships or go home for the summer. However, all the stuff you keep in your dorm or apartment needs a place to go. It doesn't make sense to travel with everything you keep at MIT. OnDemand Storage can store the things that are not essential during the summer. We provide convenient pickup at your residence hall or apartment in Cambridge. When you return to school, let us know and we'll deliver the things right to your location!

MIT Study Abroad Program

The benefits of studying abroad are many, including new perspectives, improved self-awareness, and improved confidence so make sure you get the most out of your time studying abroad. Before you go, schedule a pickup with us, OnDemand Storage. We'll come pickup everything that is not making the trip with you. You won't have to stress about move out or move in at MIT, when you return to school. All of your stuff will be kept in our climate controlled and secured location in Cambridge, MA!

How do I sign up for ODS?

Click on the yellow "Sign Up for MIT Students" and then go through the easy 5-step process.

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. 

ODS Box Day times and locations can be found on the MIT student storage calendar and scheduled during the sign-up process.  The calendar is updated in real time and always up to date. Check it out!

If an ODS Box Day does not work with your schedule please reach an associate at 781-499-5330 and we can find a time that does. 

Can I use my own packing materials?

Sure! ODS Boxes are great; but if you want to use your own packing materials you can. 

How long can I store my stuff for?

You can store your stuff for as long as you'd like. The prices listed on the page are a one time cost per semester period. A semester period in ODS terms is a 3-4 month period that includes one of the following: spring, summer, or fall semester. If you want to store for 2 periods (i.e. traveling abroad from January - September) the cost will be 2x the listed prices. 

ODS provides long-term storage to MIT students who travel abroad. Many students store for 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. With ODs you can store for as long as you want. 

When can I get my stuff back?

ODS provides full-service storage year-round to MIT students due to its close proximity to our headquarters. 

Can I get Insurance?

Yes! We take pride in providing top-notch service and taking care of your belongings. In the unlikely event something happens to one of your items you'll have the chance to purchase additional insurance during the sign-out process.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology Storage Calendar

The storage calendar provides relevant information regarding ODS Box Days, regularly scheduled pickup days, and re-delivery days. If you need boxes delivered or your items picked up on a day that is not marked on the calendar you should call 781-499-5330 as you will have to sign up over the phone. 

During ODS Box Days OnDemand Storage crew members will strategically park trucks on campus and distribute packing materials including boxes, mattress bags, etc. OnDemand Storage trucks will be parked in trim lot to distribute materials on the designated days, typically 1-2 weeks before storage pickup days begin.
