The Tidy Life
May 5, 2015|
The end of the college year can be stressful for college students as they set up summer internships or jobs and worry about final exams and projects. The last thing they want to worry about is packing up their dorm room or college apartment belongings including electronics, furniture and any other memorabilia they’ve acquired over the school year only to transport it back home for storage for the summer. A better solution is to rent a self storage unit to store college dorm stuff during the summer months. Most self storage facilities offer month-to-month rentals, which are perfect for college students’ short term needs and limited budgets. When choosing a self storage unit, start with the smallest size unit, typically a 5×5, that will fit your books, linens, winter clothes and kitchen items. If you need to store furniture or larger items, then a larger size storage unit would be a better idea. State-of-the-art security including gated access, digital security camera systems, individually alarmed units and on-site managers will also give students peace-of-mind that their belongings are safe and secure when they are in storage.
“Pack It. Store It. Win” is this year’s ezStorage annual promotion and sweepstakes for college student or faculty storage! ezStorage is offering student and faculty substantial savings when they rent a storage unit at any of our 46 storage facilities through June 30, 2015.

The sweepstakes runs until June 30, 2015 and certain restrictions do apply. See the ezStorage website for specific rules and restrictions for the “Pack It. Store It. Win” sweepstakes.
There are certain items that should be placed in storage versus what should be taken home with the student. Personal items such as spring/summer clothing, jewelry, accessories and toiletries should be taken home. Also, if students will need certain equipment such as computers, printers, electronics, TVs and other electronic equipment, take them home during the summer months. Self storage is great for storing books, furniture, mattresses, comforters, linens, kitchenware including plates, pans and glassware, mini refrigerator and other kitchen appliances and just about anything else students don’t need over the summer.
By the end of the school year, college students might need a reminder about how to properly pack their items for home or to place in storage:
