University of St Andrews Students

Room packing & Storage

Working alongside the University of St Andrews, we are carrying out room packs, secure storage and/or shipping of items for all students. The university have negotiated a special low rate of just £150 for us to pack your room, and our low storage prices as detailed here.

We will pack all items in your room (with some exclusions detailed below), and store them safe and sound until you return to university. In order to book this service, please complete the form below answering all questions. Your room will be packed by our team and we'll get in touch with you if we have any more questions.

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to and one of our team will get back to you. Once you have completed the room pack form, unless we need to we will not contact you until August, when we will send you details on how to book your re-delivery of items. If you need your items sooner than Sept, want them shipping (UK or international) or want to store for a longer period, please send us an e-mail with your request.

We will store ALL items that are in your room except items that are clearly waste or University owned. Saint Storage have packed many rooms for students before, and we take great care in packing your items appropriately and safely. If required, we can arrange for Saint Storage staff to video call you from your room before we begin packing so that you can tell us what you would like to store. We only have access to each hall for a limited number of hours, so unfortunately we cannot guarantee the video call will be available at a convenient time/date for you.

If so, please detail above (we can use FaceTime, WhatsApp and Messenger)
If so please detail the items that need storing and any locker/cupboard numbers that your items are in
If you have items that you need packing in a certain way, or if you want to detail exactly what you want to be packed etc, please write it here and our packing teams will follow these instructions :)
Each box/bag stored is insured for £100. If you wish to insure any boxes/bags/items for a higher amount please detail here. You will have to pay for this separately (£5 per £100 of insurance).
Please describe the bike, its location and tell us how to unlock it!


Your items can be returned to St Andrews, at no charge on our service dates throughout September. If you wish for your items to be returned at a different date then please make your booking and then send us an e-mail with the details. If you wish your items to be shipped, please fill out the section below.

We will return your items to your new address within St Andrews for FREE during September. You probably don't know your new address yet so you can tell us later. But if you do know your new address you can tell us now.
