Colleges all over the country are closing due to the coronavirus outbreak, and among other things, students have no idea what to do with all that stuff they schlepped into their dorm. It’s likely that schools will finish the semester online and students will have to leave campus. There’s a lot of uncertainty.
U-Haul is stepping up to help. The storage and moving company is offering college students with a valid ID 30 days of free storage at U-Haul owned and operated facilities.
“We don’t know how every student is affected. But we know they are affected. More and more universities are giving instructions to leave campus and go home,” U-Haul President John Taylor said. “Students and their parents are in need of moving and storage solutions. We have the expertise and network to help, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

This is the first time U-Haul has extended the offer company-wide. Typically, U-Haul offers free storage and moving solutions to communities impacted by natural disasters such as hurricanes.
