Housing & Residential Living


Limited storage is available on a first-come basis for a minimal fee to currently enrolled students. Private facilities are also available within the Northfield area. Carleton College assumes no responsibility for loss, damage or theft of items placed in storage. We recommend personal property insurance. Storage is provided as an alternative to taking possessions off campus each year. Space is limited.

Fire codes limit what can be stored. While students are on campus, only empty suitcases and trunks may be stored.

During student absences from campus, storage space is available for boxes, suitcases, trunks, bicycles and small refrigerators. Limited space is available for bicycle storage in Watson Hall. Personal items other than bicycles or refrigerators must be stored in boxes, trunks or luggage displaying current storage tickets that can be purchased from the Business Office in Leighton Hall. See detailed storage information posted in each residence hall and house.

Carleton College does not assume responsibility for any personal belongings that are left in the room or placed in storage.
