NDSP to offer free winter storage

Liz O'Donnell | Tuesday, December 9, 2008

The Notre Dame Security/Police (NDSP) are offering free winter storage for both on and off campus students, relieving them of worry about the safety of their items.

NDSP offers three different storage areas for current Notre Dame students.

Starting Dec. 18, students will have the opportunity to store their bikes in Gate D of the football stadium. They can drop their bikes off between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The release date for when the bikes will be available for pick-up is yet to be determined, but there is also an option of pick-up by appointment.

For students who will be leaving their cars on campus over the winter break, they can store their vehicles in the D2 South Parking Lot. After 5 p.m. on Dec. 20, the area will be locked and will reopen Sunday Jan. 11 at 9 a.m.

NDSP requested that students remove all personal belongings from the car and certify that it is locked before leaving.

As with the bike storage, there is also an option for early pick-up. Students must call NDSP and have proper identification in order to exercise this option.

Students who live off campus have the option of storing items like electronics, musical instruments and other items of great value with NDSP.

The drop off for these items will take place in the second floor of the Hammes Mowbray Hall in the Investigations room.

Students have the option of dropping off their belongings Wednesday from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. During final exams week, there will also be drop-off times available on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Pick-up times for these items will be offered every day during the first week of the second semester. In addition, there will also be pick-up times on Wednesday, Jan. 14 and Thursday, Jan. 15.

In order to use this method of storage, students must box their items and have their name clearly printed on the box. Students must also bring their student IDs when dropping off and picking up the items.

Questions about storage for off-campus students should be addressed to NDSP officer Keri Kei Shibata at [email protected] .
