Dickinson College does not provide any on-site storage facilities for students looking to store personal items between semesters or during the summer. There are a number of locally owned storage facilities in the area and several are convenient to campus. While Dickinson College does not endorse any specific storage facility we have attached a listing here

The Office of Campus Life offers supplies to student organizations to help advertise their events. A poster maker, banners to be painted and hung on Britton Plaza, a die cut machine for making large letters for bulletin boards and bulletin board paper are among items that are available. The Student Senate also makes available for use by student organizations a copy machine and colored paper for duplicating. To make use of any of these supplies please stop by the Student Life Office on the lower level of the HUB, Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. The copy machine is located in the Student Senate Suite on the lower level of the HUB.
The Office of Campus Life publishes a guide to hosting events with alcohol on campus. This booklet includes all the information necessary to properly host an event with alcohol. When a group or individual sponsors an event with alcohol they assume liability and take on risks associated with this type of event. The College recognizes this and acknowledges the difficulty in managing such events. However, the sponsor of the event is ultimately responsible for maintaining safety and preventing violations of College policy. In order to help groups and individuals manage events with alcohol, procedures have been developed. Adherence to the Alcohol Policy and an understanding of these procedures will result in a safe, enjoyable event that will help your group avoid interactions with the discipline system. A copy of the hosting guide is available in the Student Life Office which is located on the lower level of the HUB.
Lost and Found
Lost and Found items are located at the Info Desk in the upper level of the HUB and/or the Department of Public Safety in the Kauffman Building.
The Student Handbook is made available through the Office of Student Development and is available online at the following link.
