Going away to college is a time of adjustment for new students. One of the biggest adjustment for students is moving into a residence hall and learning to live in close quarters with one or multiple roommates. It is also a challenge to fit all of your everyday “stuff” into the space. Some dorm rooms are very small with limited storage space. Students have to be very creative in storing books, clothing, and needed accessories. Georgetown University students should consider renting a self storage unit to place additional items that they don’t have room for in their dorms.
