The University is changing its storage policy for bicycles and for refrigerators and personal items.

Bicycle storage: As of fall 2019, OWU will provide bike storage for students at no cost. If you have a bicycle to store for fall and/or winter, please contact Public Safety to make arrangements.

Refrigerators and personal items: At the end of the 2019-20 academic year, OWU will stop providing on-campus storage for such items. Beginning in fall 2020, all storage (other than for bicycles) will need to be arranged through off-campus providers.

Please note: Students studying away Spring '20 should plan to relocate any stored items before leaving campus for winter break in December. Other students should plan to relocate stored items before leaving in May or, if you will be on campus over the summer, no later than Tuesday, June 30.

Fraternity House Storage

Storage for personal property is not available on site at each fraternity house.

Under the provisions of the Memorandum of Understanding for Fraternity Chapters Assigned to University Residences, the University will provide a secure storage space for property owned by the Chapter – other than common area furnishings that will remain in place. All movable property owned by the Chapter or its national organization must be removed from the House or placed in a designated, University-approved storage area in the House. Should storage space in the House be insufficient for fraternity-owned property, the University will provide temporary portable storage units at its expense to store additional items. 

SLU And Theme House Storage

Storage for personal property is not available on site at each SLU or Theme house.  

Other Storage Options

OWU doesn't endorse any particular public storage providers, but several are located near campus. At least one provider -- Brown Jug Storage, 224 E. William St., 740-972-5390 -- offers a reduced rate to students with valid University IDs.
