Do students really need storage?

Life can be so much simpler if you don’t have to cart all your belongings to and from uni each term.

Do students really need storage?

Just why is student storage so popular? Students can’t possibly have that much stuff – right? Well, often it’s not about the amount of things that a student might have but more about convenience.

Vacating student accommodation

When living in halls of residence or even other student accommodation, you will often find that you need to vacate the room outside of term time. Universities often have conferences during the main holidays and will therefore need the accommodation and in these situations it means uplifting all your things over each holiday just to move them straight back into the same room again a few weeks later. This is particularly a problem if your main residence or your family is not located close by or you don’t have transport.

There’s also the cost to consider too. If you have plans over the holidays and don’t plan to use your university accommodation then what’s the point in paying for it. It is actually really simple to move your things out and free up your rent money – there are far better things to spend it on.
