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.
Enjoy a Stress-Free Student Experience
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.

All of your FAQ’sView all FAQs
Attic Self Storage offers flexible storage space for anyone to use. All of our units are clean, dry and individually alarmed and our customers receive complimentary 24 hour access, 7 days a week. You lock your own unit and only you, (or anyone you permit) has access to it. You have total control. All of our units can be booked online, by phone or in person and you simply pick the size you need, reserve, check in and move in! You can stay from as little as a week to as long as you like. You just need to give us notice of when you intend to leave – a bit like renting a flat. Our team of storage experts will be on hand through every step of the process should you have any questions or need any help.
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 notice to move out at any time. We do have a minimum spnd 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.
Of course the cost will depend on the size of the unit you take but, generally prices start from around £15 per week for our smallest units. You can use our storage calculator to estimate the amount of space you might need or our trained team can also advise. Our team can advise how best to effectively use the space and will always try to make sure that you don’t take any more space than you need.
First, you need to estimate how much space you will need. Our size calculator can help with this. We also have videos and even VR tours of our units which can help you visualise the space. Once you’ve decided on your space and location you can see prices online here and then reserve the unit of your choice – all online, from your sofa or the convenience of your desk! Naturally, if you would prefer to talk to one of our team we are always happy to answer any questions, talk through the process or even reserve a unit for you. If you would like more information on the process then you can find this here.
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 offer a bespoke, open cover insurance which means that you will be covered by our own insurance policy. We use specialist insurers with knowledge of the self storage industry and customer needs, who can therefore handle and process any claims quickly and with minimum hassle. We do need to charge for the administration costs of this cover which 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 UK Self Storage Association then 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 prefer to take our insurance as it is the most convenient option.
