The end of the spring semester is a stressful time for college students as they take exams, set up internships or get ready for graduation. The last week of the semester is full of taking finals, saying goodbye to friends and packing up the dorm room or college apartment to move back home for the summer. According to the 2014 NRF Back to School Survey, 25% of college-aged students live on campus and they start off the school year with the dorm basics like a mini-fridge, computer/printer and a shower caddy. The average dorm room is 200 square feet, which will probably be shared with a roommate. That definitely does not leave a lot of room for the stuff that students accumulate throughout the school year such as memorabilia, laundry, books, kitchen items, more furniture and more electronics. Where will students store all of their stuff during the summer months? ezStorage has created the Ultimate College Moving Guide to help students pack up their dorm rooms or college apartments for the summer months. The guide has specific packing tips for books, dishes, clothes and linens. The guide also shares tips on what can be placed easily in a storage unit versus items that should be taken home over the summer months. In conjunction with the Ultimate College Moving Guide, ezStorage is excited to launch our money-saving college special, “You Got Stuff. We Have Storage.” This special promotion began April 1st and runs through June 30th. College students and faculty can store their college stuff at their local ezStorage facility and receive the 1st month’s rent free, a free 2GB USB drive and 10% off the monthly rent through September 30, 2014! Once a student or faculty rents a storage unit, they are automatically entered into a sweepstakes to win one of 3 Apple iPad Airs. Also, like the ezStorage Facebook Page, to be entered in a weekly drawing for a $25 iTunes gift card. The sweepstakes and iTunes contest run through June 30th and certain restrictions apply. The Ultimate College Moving Guide is a great guide for student storage tips from packing up dorm rooms to what can be placed in a self storage unit. Stop in to any of the 46 ezStorage locations in the Baltimore, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. areas to find out more about our student specials and sweepstakes.
