College Lifestyle: What to Store

Sometimes students just don't have the space they need for all of their stuff. Affordable apartments or dorm rooms with roommates are often lacking in storage room. A storage unit at a self-storage facility lets you hang on to your belongings, and can even be arranged to still provide quick access for things you only need occasionally.

Storage Ideas for Students

  • Temporary Storage
    Nearly every self-storage facility offers month-by-month rental. Use it to your advantage for storing property for a short time. If your move-out and move-in dates don't quite line up perfectly, you can stash your stuff in a unit for a month or two. They're also great spaces for keeping seasonal gear you'll only need a few months out of the year. All you need to do is find the right unit size to fit your budget and needs.
  • School or Hobby Storage
    Many students utilize a large collection of supplies or tools needed for their studies. Art students overloaded with supplies and works can use a storage unit to keep everything organized in one space. Everyone needs to get rid of the stress that comes from studying day in and day out. Outdoor hobbies such as kayaking use bulky equipment that just doesn't fit in small spaces. A storage unit gives you a place to keep your hobby equipment safe and out of the way when you're busy attending classes.

Out-of-state students are always in need of storage over the Summer. You might be returning home to be with family and friends, or you may need to move temporarily for that all-important internship to get your career started. Rent out a self-storage unit near your campus to save yourself time and hassle when returning to school in the Fall. You'll have all of your stuff in one place, and you won't have to deal with constantly packing and repacking your things all Summer long.
