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 items 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. Instead of trying to cram belongings in a dorm room, consider a storage unit rental.
