Each spring American University students have to pack up their dorm room or apartment to move home. Instead of packing items to go back home to take up space in a basement or garage; a great college storage idea would be to consider renting a self storage unit for the summer break. A storage unit rental will allow you to keep your items close to campus where they will be waiting for you once the school year starts back up again.
American University is located in Northwest Washington D.C. on Nebraska & Massachusetts Avenues at Ward Circle. There is also a smaller campus one mile away in Tenleytown, predominantly used for housing students during a summer internship program. The college was established in 1893, but the trustees took 30 years to gather funds and the first class of students didn’t start until 1914. The campus was used for military testing and training during World War II and was the birthplace of the chemical weapons program and performed testing for modern camouflage techniques. The present structure of the university started in 1949 including adding schools of business, technology, communication and international service. American University has earned a reputation as one of the best schools in the United States for international relations, government and political science.
College students can place their items in a storage unit where they can easily be accessed when they’re needed. These items would include linens, pillows, comforter, plates, glasses and other kitchenware, books, binders and folders and winter clothes. Placing college apartment furniture such as couches, dressers, mattresses and tables is also a great idea.
Our self storage facilities will offer month-to-month rentals that are perfect for college student storage. Our storage facilities also have storage unit specials, making renting a storage unit a very affordable solution. Storing your personal belongings in a self storage unit gives you peace of mind that your belongings are safe and secure and ready to be used again when school starts up in the fall. In some cases, storing the items in self storage could be a much better solution for the student if they don’t have a way to transport their belongings back and forth from home to school.
