Boxes (18" x 18" x 16") will be provided by Housing for in-house storage. Students are also permitted to use their own plastic containers that meet the same measurement requirements as the boxes provided.

*Policies for in-house storage were developed by the house government. Please see your house manager or house storage captain for policies regarding storage in your residence hall.

Proof of Insurance

Residents storing belongings in-house must provide proof of insurance to the Housing Office before their belongings can be stored.

  • Check with your parent/guardian to determine if their current renter/homeowner insurance policy will cover items stored on campus.
  • If you would like to purchase renters' insurance, MIT's Office of Insurance has recommended College Student Insurance (now Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.). For $76 annually, the policy covers:
    • $3,000 coverage limit $50 deductible
    • worldwide coverage, including student belongings in their dorm, while studying abroad, or other items in storage

Reminder! Students are responsible for arranging storage and insurance, and moving their belongings before they check out of their spring housing assignment. Any item left in a room after check out will be discarded and the student may be subject to a cleaning fee no less than $200.
