PACK-A-DORM

 STEP 1: PLAN AHEAD

Join the Facebook event!

Start packing up your things for an early chance to win prizes. Tufts will be handing out prizes throughout May. You’ll have more competition to win on Move-Out Day (May 14th for undergraduates & May 23rd for Seniors), so why not get a head start on Step #4!

Need storage space? Visit allcollegestorage.com to select a pick-up date. All College Storage is owned by Tufts alumni! The sooner you reserve a pick-up date, the better your chances of securing a space.

STEP 2: BAG UP UNWANTED ITEMS
