Uses of self storage for students at university

Summer for university students tends to mean moving accommodation for the new academic year. This is by no means an easy feat, especially when having to consider being away from home and needing to find a new place that lines up with your old one. So here’s how a self storage space can make your life a little bit easier when it comes to living in student accommodation. 

Moving between properties

University is often a time where students will move away from home, and this can be as far as the next town over or across the country (or even out of the country for those who are brave). This means that when it comes time to move from one residence to another between the academic year, hauling all of your belongings to and from can be expensive and take a lot of time. This is especially true if your next house is not available as soon as you’re ready to move out of your current accommodation. 

Self storage for students

Self storage is an easy solution to this problem. By using a self storage unit nearby, you won’t have to worry about packing up your or your parents car(s) in order to take it all home and back again. Instead, you can gradually move items over as and when needed, and then store them until you are ready to come back. All the Boxpod self storage units are monitored via CCTV and use coded access to gain entry, meaning that no matter where you are in the country you can be assured that your belongings are safe. 

Extra space at home

Moving away from home often leads to increasing the amount of items you own yourself. You never needed a fully functioning kitchen of your own before, not to mention the amount of textbooks and fancy dress clothing you are likely to have acquired during your time at uni. This means that if you do need to go back with all of your belongings, for whatever reason, there might not be space for it all. Being able to store your unessential items for a short period of time before you come back to university is a great way to save on unnecessary items making their way back to your home and cluttering up your parents living room. 

Storage space in uni accommodation

It can be easy to pack everything and the kitchen sink when it comes to first moving to university, but you’ll quickly find that you don’t need everything that you brought with you all the time. If you are moving into university halls, then you may find yourself with less storage space than you’re used to, or less than you need. 

In order to have all of your belongings at hand while you are far from home, a storage unit would be ideal. That way, you don’t need to transport bulky items like your winter coats to and from home. Instead, you can have them when you need them, in a secure self storage unit. 

Whether you have different clothes for different seasons or a surplus of books that you will need but can’t store all year round, putting them in storage would mean fewer, heavy trips for you.
