Swarthmore Storage is a private, student/alumni-run service that provides shipping and storage exlcusively to Swarthmore students.
Organized in the Spring of 2009 by Louis Rosenberg '09 and Michael May '10, Swarthmore Storage aims to provide low-cost, convenient, and secure summer storage options for Swarthmore students.
Rosenberg and May also identified a need to provide storage and shipping services for incoming first-year and transfer students---and thus the "shipping" arm of the company was born.
The storage space used by Swarthmore Storage is climate-controlled and completely secure. Convenience and ease are the selling points of the service. Says Rosenberg: "During a busy reading week and finals period, it will be easy to drop off boxes with student workers who will then transport them to the secure storage space nearby. Boxes will be returned at the beginning of fall semester, or earlier for athletes, RAs, SAMs, CAs, and others on campus before then."
