Serve Athletic Programs & Students

An equipment room is much more than a storage space. With the right solutions, it can serve as a recruiting tool and a way to protect your significant investment in equipment. We’ll work with your team to design a system that optimizes your space, allows you to quickly retrieve equipment, uniforms, tools, and repair parts, and serves as a source of pride for your program.

Keep Lab Equipment Safe & Organized

Academic buildings with state-of-the-art lab spaces are key to not only attracting great students and faculty, but also providing an excellent learning experience. Storage in science labs is particularly challenging because labs need to provide plenty of space for students and researchers to work, while also storing equipment and materials like fragile glassware, expensive electronics, combustible fuel, and other potentially hazardous chemicals.

To ensure that food, drinks, and other prohibited items are securely stored before staff or students enter the lab, our experts recommend installing Day Use Lockers near the entrance. This not only keeps these potential contaminants out of the space but also allows researchers to focus on their work knowing their belongings are safe.

Keep Campus Safe

In many ways, campus police departments are similar to other law enforcement organizations in that their overall mission is to promote a safe and secure environment and maintain relationships with the people they serve. However, due to jurisdictional issues and other considerations, campus police departments’ storage needs are somewhat different than their counterparts.

Keep Students Healthy

University hospitals and on-campus health clinics treat hundreds of patients every day. Having quick access to sterile supplies and necessary medications allows staff more time to better treat more patients. Not only can Spacesaver optimize storage solutions used by the healthcare center staff, but we can also ensure students have a safe, welcoming environment to store their personal belongings while getting the care they need.

Facilities & Maintenance

Campus warehouses support the entire campus and pose unique storage challenges. Some items might sit in a warehouse for months or years before they’re put to use. While others, like surplus office furniture, may only be housed in the warehouse for less than a week before they’re sold or repurposed.
