Curbside Only in 2021

Due to COVID, we will only offer curbside pickup this year.

This means students must bring all their items to the curbside of their building during the pickup window.

We leave promptly at the end of each window. If you miss the window, we will have to schedule a custom pickup ($90 fee).
