Over the course of a single school term, year or a full college or university program, a student can sure accumulate a lot of stuff…parents you know exactly what we’re talking about!
Student housing, both on and off campus, is not typically generous in the ‘space’ department. This means that most of a student’s belongings end up at home in their parent’s basements, attics, garages or in their childhood bedroom. That’s a long time to have stuff sitting around and taking up space, which let’s be honest parents, you really want to reclaim and use as functional space of your own.
Student self-storage has continued to gain popularity with both students and parents over the years. A self-storage unit is perfect for storing student items like:
And it’s not just in the summer between school terms (when they move in and out of dorm rooms or off-campus housing or sublet because they are coming home or traveling), that they are using a self-storage facility as a secure storage solution for their belongings. Students and their families are finding self-storage useful all throughout their college and university programs. We’re even seeing an increase in new graduates using self-storage to help make the transition from student-life to a career and building an independent life outside of their childhood home.
December is a popular time for student self-storage. Once exams are written and assignments are turned in, students travel home for the holidays, often arriving with more than just dirty laundry and Christmas gifts. After excited hugs are exchanged, it’s time to find a place to put the stuff they have no room for at school. This is usually more challenging this time of year because homes tend to be more cramped and disorganized over the holidays (and with everything they have accumulated over the last year). Because there is no more room to spare at home, students and parents turn to self-storage because they instantly and affordably get more space.
