When people ask us about Store Your Dorm, we’ll confess its a long story full of boxes, dorm rooms, late nights and airplanes. Having lived through the hassle of moving nearly every year at university, we knew that a more convenient moving solution for students was needed. In 2006, we took the leap and Store Your Dorm started serving students studying in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area at universities and colleges such as the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, York University, Seneca, Humber, Sheridan and Centennial. Later that same year we expanded our student storage services to the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.
In 2009, we expanded to offer student summer storage in Ottawa, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec. This expansion allowed us to offer a convenient summer storage service for students at Carleton University, the University of Ottawa, Ashbury College and Saint Paul University as well as McGill University and Concordia University.
In 2011, we expanded our student summer storage operations to Vancouver, British Columbia. In doing so we offer delivered student storage for students at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Simon Fraser University (SFU) and BCIT. We also serve students at community colleges and language schools in the lower mainland.
In 2012 we expanded to Halifax, Nova Scotia. In doing so we offer delivered student storage for students at Dalhousie University, Saint Mary’s University, NSCAD, Mount Saint Vincent and King’s College.
Now in 2013, Store Your Dorm works alongside some 30 universities, colleges and schools in Canada to bring students the most convenient delivered dorm storage service for the summer. In doing so we assist with the transition of moving-out of residence to off-campus housing. Our service is one of the few that provides packing supplies, pick-up and delivery in all of our storage packages.
In 2013, our operations will extend to:
Mount Saint Vincent
Saint Mary’s University
University of Quebec at Montreal
University of Montreal
Saint Paul University
University of Ottawa

George Brown College
University of Toronto (all campuses)
