If your student lives on campus, chances are he has a good deal of stuff crammed into his residence hall space. And he’ll need to move that stuff at the end of the semester. Discuss a few things now to help this process go smoothly:
Is storage available on campus for larger items such as rugs and fridges?
If not, is there storage in town that might be a viable option?
If your student is moving off campus, when will her new apartment/house become available? Can she store items there even if she’s not living there this summer?
Is there a quick turnaround between when your student moves out and when he needs to be to his summer job/internship/etc.? How will you handle this?
If your student is staying on campus this summer to work and/or take classes, will she need to move to another building or can she stay where she is?
What vehicle will fit your student’s belongings effectively?
Who can help your student move?
While it may seem early to discuss these details, starting the conversation now can go a long, long way in preventing end-of-the-year hassles and stress. Best of luck!
