What is a reasonable amount of time to notify someone to pickup their property?

Question Details: I have a question pertaining to a friend that left his property in my dorm room. The agreement was to let him leave his boxes in the room over the summer. Now that summer is coming to an end and I do not foresee him coming to retrieve his property. What is a reasonable amount of time to demand that he pickup his belongings? Is a text message a sufficient method of written notice? I cannot determine the value of the items because they are in boxes.
