The httpsessionstate class, or the ASP.NET intrinsic Session object, contain an Item property. This Item property is accessed via a string key and contains a variable of type object, so you can store anything you'd like in there, then later retrieve it in a subsequent page request.

Overuse of session variables can result in lousy performance, and restrict your options regarding scalability, though, so be careful.
