Improve Dorm and Student Storage with a Storage Unit Rental

Posted on: January 18, 2018 | Tri-Village Self Storage 2018-01-18

The holiday season has come and gone. For college kids, this means that it’s almost time to head back to school to start another semester of classes. For some students, this may mean heading back to their college town for a continuation of a lease or dorm assignment from first semester. But for others, it may be their first semester and the start of a new move into a dorm or leased apartment or house.

College living situations are notoriously not ideal. One thing many college students have found to be helpful is a storage unit rental. In this post, we will explore how students can benefit from renting a storage unit.

The Top 4 Reasons Students Can Benefit from a Storage Unit Rental

A storage unit can be beneficial to stay more organized throughout the school year, for storage between semesters, or because they simply can’t fit all of their items in the close quarters. Here are the top reasons college students should consider utilizing a storage unit:

  1. One Less Move During the Summer: College students move from one living situation to the next. They will likely start in a dorm room for the first year or two and then move to upperclassman housing where they eventually hop from house to apartment. And just when college students feel settled, summer comes and they may be looking to move home or elsewhere for a job. Something that can make this process much easier is a storage unit rental. Instead of having to worry about moving back home every summer, you can simply move your items into your storage unit where they will be waiting for you next semester.
  2. Perfect Sizing Options for Dorms or Apartments: Storage units come in a variety of sizes. The 5×5 and 5×10 storage units are the perfect size for college storage. If you’re storing more sensitive items, like electronics, or wooden or leather furniture, consider utilizing a climate controlled storage unit. A climate controlled storage unit will help to protect sensitive items against dangerous fluctuations in temperature.
  3. Month-to-Month Lease: A storage unit rental is truly as flexible as you are. Whether you need a storage unit rental for just a month, through the summer, or for the entire school year, you can choose the lease the best fits your needs.
  4. Student Athletes: Student athletes can also benefit from the use of a storage unit. The close quarters of a dorm room or on campus apartment can be tight. During the off-season, holiday season or summer, when the items are not used very often, a storage unit is a smart location to store your items.
