The University of Tampa also welcomes outside storage and moving companies and their box trucks on campus to assist students and their families with their move-in and move-out process with the exception of designated University move-in days. Box trucks will not be permitted on campus from 7 to 9 a.m. on University designated move-in days, typically held in August and January.
Students must be checked into their residence hall assignment, present on campus, and must escort the representative from their chosen storage or moving company at all times inside the residence hall. Storage and moving companies cannot be scheduled prior to a student’s arrival to campus and Residence Life cannot give storage and moving companies access to any residential facility on campus. Any box truck blocking campus or city traffic will be asked to move regardless of whether or not their move is complete.
Starting Spring 2023, the Office of Residence Life has partnered with Collegeboxes, powered by U-Haul. The Collegeboxes program is the only UT-approved move-in and storage program that offers in-room pre-arrival deliveries, allowing students to have their items placed in their Fall 2023 room assignments prior to move-in day.
Current on-campus residents will be able to sign up with Collegeboxes for select dates this spring to drop off items on campus, which the company can store over the summer months. Current on-campus residents who are planning to live off-campus may also have the items shipped to their off-campus residences.
Incoming residents can also utilize the service to direct ship their items from home, including international locations as an affordable and convenient way for students to get their items shipped and delivered to school. Additional information is available at https://www.collegeboxes.com.
