Should I Use a Storage Unit When I’m On Campus?
Many college students use self storage for one reason or another, especially during summer break when they return home. But college storage comes in handy while students are still on campus. Whether you want to get more room in the dorm or have a space to call your own, Access in North Brunswick, NJ, has a few reasons why you should use student storage throughout the school year.
College Storage: How a Storage Unit Can Help
You’ll have more space in the dorm.
Let’s face it: Dorms are small. They’re not made with luxury and space in mind. A dorm is a glorified bedroom that’s just big enough to house two people but not for very long. You won’t have much room in your dorm if you bring a lot of your belongings from home. You can save space in the dorm and have a tad more elbow room if you keep many of your things in storage.
You can keep your stuff protected.
If you’re on a sports team or spend most evenings out with friends, you might want to consider keeping your valuables in a storage unit. Dorm theft is a common occurrence on campuses across the country. Maybe you’ll forget to lock the door before you head out, or perhaps you’ll be gone for a day or two while your team plays an away game. You don’t want to come back and find out that someone stole your belongings. Self storage units have video surveillance and other security measures in place to prevent theft.
You get your own closet space.
Tired of sharing a closet with your roommate? You won’t have to if you put your things in a self storage unit. A small storage locker is all you need to organize your clothes and to keep your roommate from borrowing them. You can also use a self storage unit to keep your books and school supplies tucked away when you’re not using them.
