Self-storage for students

It’s amazing how much stuff you can accumulate as a student. A little bit of creative thinking about storage could help solve your problems.

When self-storage can be useful for students

  • If you don’t want to move everything across the country at the end of every term, why not put it in store?
  • Living in a small space: if you want to make your room feel bigger, why not put things in self-storage?
  • Worrying about security in a shared house: you won’t always know all your housemates’ friends, so keeping some things secure in self-storage can be reassuring.
  • Making it easier to enjoy your favourite pastimes: painting, canoeing, rock climbing... all involve kit. It's easier to do what you love if you have somewhere close by to store your stuff.

If you’re a parent whose child has gone off to college, you may also benefit from self-storage. You could clear out their room and turn it into a guest room, reading room, yoga room or anything you didn't have the space for. You could even earn some extra income from B and B if the room has been cleared of personal possessions.
