Catholic University of America Student Storage

Every fall, students of all ages prepare to head back to school.  During the summer, college freshman are reviewing their college checklists and making plans for dorm rooms with their future roommate(s). When it is finally time to move into the dormitory, college students face many new experiences and adjustments. One of the biggest challenges for students is moving into a residence hall is learning to live in close quarters with one or multiple roommates.  Dorm rooms can be very small with a limited amount of storage space. Students have to be very creative in storing books, clothing, and needed accessories and electronics.

Catholic University of America students should consider renting a self storage unit to place additional items that they don’t have room for in their dorm rooms.  Storage units are great for storing duplicate electronics, kitchen accessories, and other room supplies.   For students or faculty traveling away from campus for a semester or a year, placing personal belongings in a storage unit while away will reduce the stress of moving belongings to and from home. Most self storage facilities offer month-to-month rentals that are perfect for a college student’s budget. ezStorage offers many college student storage solutions,  from short term to long term, for items that will no longer fit in a college dorm or apartment.

ezStorage has state-of-the-art security systems from video surveillance to gated keypad entry that will give students peace of mind that their belongings are safe and secure. There are a variety of storage unit sizes from 5×5 to 10×30 to fit any storage need. Depending on the size of the storage unit, students can store everything from bicycles to winter clothes. Storage units are also perfect for storing excess furniture, clothing, kitchen items, books, mattresses, comforters and linens.
