The Secret to a Successful Campus: Optimal Storage

A campus is like a small city because it can provide almost all the resources its residents need to thrive. Housing, sustenance, healthcare, and recreation, today’s campuses have all these items covered and more. Like a city, campuses tend to grow in size and population over time, requiring them to seek out new space or repurpose their current footprint to accommodate current and future growth.

Let’s tour ten campus storage solutions and show how they can help you rise among the ranks of today’s best campuses.

10 Efficient Storage Solutions for Departments All Across Campus

1. First Stop: The Fieldhouse

For most colleges and universities, the buck starts in the athletic programs. Success on the field drives revenue and draws attention to the school and its winning tradition to prospective students. And, while this effort culminates as the championship trophy is hoisted, it all starts in the equipment room.

McMurray Stern offers functional, durable, and customizable storage and shelving systems for all types of athletic equipment. We have designed and built custom storage systems for several of the professional sports teams here in Southern California, as well as most of the major universities. Learn more.

2. Hit the Books: Campus Library Storage

Today’s campus libraries offer more than just a quiet space to read a book. Utilizing solutions that allow for collaboration and meeting areas and feature the latest technology, library spaces can be configured to fit the user’s exact needs.

McMurray Stern offers storage solutions for today’s library. So, whether you’re hosting a study group or getting more books, you’ll have the space to do so.

3. Going Off-Site: Campus Archive Collection Storage

The rise of technology and the demand for an alternative learning environment has left on-campus space at a premium. So, to preserve valuable resources that are not accessed as frequently as others, school administrators are taking these items off-campus to categorize storage facilities strategically. Learn more about our library storage solutions.

4. Flex Space Storage: Are You Flexible?

As the current floor plan won’t always fit tomorrow’s needs, campus space planners must remain flexible with their design parameters. Campus flex spaces can be adapted to fit the current use case and repurposed with little-to-no effort or funds.

5. Campus Museum Storage: Moving Forward, We Look to the Past

Not only a place for future curators to sharpen their skills, but campus museums also preserve historical items and moments occurring on and off campus while saving room for future momentous occasions. And, like all good things, these should be on display for staff, faculty, and students alike.

We support campuses of all sizes in their efforts to manage risk, boost community engagement, optimize space, and stretch limited budgets. Learn more.

6. A Quick Stop at the Lab

Never wanting to stem progress, campuses everywhere are increasing their investment in STEM-related labs and research spaces to adjust to the nearly 50% increase in students majoring in the subject over the past decade.

7. Campus Safety Check

Attaining a degree can be hard enough for students without worrying about staying safe throughout the process. Luckily, this is where the Campus Police & Safety Department comes into play.

McMurray Stern offers safe custom solutions, so you don’t have to compromise security or convenience. Learn more.

8. Checkup On Healthcare

A lot can happen when traveling from building to building, class to class, and other places on and off campus. And, while some instances may result from a simple bandage, campus healthcare professionals are equipped and prepared to handle a wide array of mental and physical health issues. Learn more.

9. A Brief Intermission For The Arts

Though a good deal of music, scripts, rulebooks, and schedules have gone digital, there’s still plenty of demand for storage space within a campus’ Performing Arts & Recreation department. With equipment ranging as widely in value as it does in size, storage solutions must be flexible and durable enough to provide continued value for participants.

10. Last Stop Keeps All In Flow

While some use all facilities on campus, all are serviced by Facilities & Maintenance teams. These professionals care for each building and its functionality, allowing staff, faculty, and students to carry on their development in the most facilitating environment possible. Our campus storage systems allow staff to fit more into warehouses and easily find and retrieve what they need to do the job.
