5 Tips for Student Storage at Morgan State University

  1. Send home the essentials: Pack up any items you will need during the summer and bring them home. This may include summer clothing, necessary text books, your laptop and TV.
  2. Determine what you will need for next year: This tip is especially important if you are moving in with new roommates. Before leaving for the school year, talk to your roommates to determine what each of you will need to bring. If you are coming from different houses or apartments, then it is very possible you will have duplicate items. This will prevent you from moving or storing items you will not even need.
  3. Sell what you no longer need: Once you know exactly what you are required to bring next year, sort through your items and pull out anything you will no longer need. Before you leave, try to sell any old text books, furniture and more that you will not need for the next school year. The money from these sales can be used to purchase new textbooks next year.
  4. Properly pack up your items: In order to prevent damage from occurring, it is important to properly prepare your items for moving and storage. Need help with storing your items? Our self storage blog is filled with lots of helpful storage and moving tips.
  5. Use a self storage unit: One of the biggest time and effort saving tips for students is to use a self storage unit when moving home. A self storage unit will allow students to easily keep their items close to campus, where they can access them next fall. This can not only save a good amount of time but depending on how far they’d otherwise have to transport them, it can also save money. If you are storing items over the summer that are sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, consider using a storage unit that can control the climate.
