Annoying flat mates, daytime TV marathons and last minute-panic-stricken essay submissions – the student experience wouldn’t be an authentic one without it. If there’s anything else that can be guaranteed (apart from studying very hard, of course) it’s that you will probably move accommodation at least once. The less lucky will move much more than this.
With this comes the consideration of what to do with your belongings, especially during the summer break period. If you are a university student needing storage in London, here at Attic Storage, we believe we can help.
For a Student, Having Storage Makes London More Affordable
Summer holidays aside, there are also other instances where self storage is beneficial for students. Let’s face it, students aren’t exactly renowned for having lots of cash at their disposal! Budgeting so that you have extra money for nights out is always on the agenda (priorities)! Renting in London doesn’t help matters either. As much as the greatest of great places to go out are on your doorstep in London, accommodation in the city is, more often than not, extremely cramped and pricey. Self storage, in this instance, could save you money by allowing you to rent a smaller accommodation, or not rent at all over the summer just to keep your larger belongings safe.
Having Some Extra Student Storage Space can make Studying that Bit Less Stressful
As a student, you have deadlines and exam stress all term long. When it comes to summer, it’s time to relax! The last thing you want to worry about is lugging all the new stuff you’ve acquired back home – especially if they are items you won’t necessarily need. Even if you have the means to continue paying rent during the holidays, it’s possible your landlord will forbid you from storing your items over summer.
Packing up your stuff and taking it home is, of course, an option. The laborious task of lugging your belongings here and there is a hassle you can do without, especially if you plan ahead. If you are international student leaving London for the summer to return home, the expense and stress is even more magnified. This can be avoided with local student storage in London.

Even though with the underground, most places in London are within reach, we do have storage facilities in both Bow in East London, and King’s Cross in North London – making us a convenient option for London-based university students.

Self Storage means that you’re able to lock your own units and have total control over who has access to it. If you do ever need assistance though, our team of storage experts will be on hand to help you every step of the way.
At Attic Self Storage we usually ask customers to stay for a minimum of a week but you’re free to stay as long as you like and give the notice to move out at any time. We do have a minimum spend of £75. We will bill you monthly and then refund any unused rent when you move out of your unit. Whilst you’re with us you can upsize or downsize your unit or even take another one – it’s all completely within your control.
The terms of the agreement are largely stipulated by our trade body, the SSA UK, and have been agreed with Trading Standards, but if you have any concerns then our team is always on hand to help.
The price of storage units will largely depend upon the amount of space you require but for some context, our smallest units usually cost around £15 per week to rent out.
We do charge a small, fully refundable, reservation fee of £25 which is deducted from your first storage payment on move-in day. You will then need to pay the first month’s rent then in advance on the move-in day, and we also ask for one month’s rent up front as (fully refundable) a security deposit – it’s just like renting a house or flat. We usually have special offers which can significantly reduce your first payment, often by up to 50% to help manage your finances for the beginning of your stay.
We are able to protect your goods with StoreProtect using an arrangement with our industry specialist insurance brokers. With knowledge of the self-storage industry and customer needs, in the unlikely event of loss or damage they handle and process claims quickly and with minimum hassle. We do need to charge for the administration costs of this protection and these charges will be added to your storage costs. You are perfectly welcome to take out your own insurance cover but since it is a requirement of the Self Storage Association UK, we will have to ask for evidence that you have this in place before you can move your things in. Most of our customers do however prefer to use our arrangements as it is the most convenient option.
