Storage Solutions: Stretching Out College Dorm Spaces

What is your most unforgettable experience in college? It's probably one of the most exciting memories. When you enter college, you have to learn to live on your own, especially if you are studying away from your family. You need to make decisions for yourself and be responsible for it. Sounds terrifying, right? For that part, yes! But college life has a lot of surprises and fun in store for you. Meeting a lot of new friends, attending parties, joining academic and non-academic clubs, and living in a dorm!

College dorm is your home away from home. So, what do you expect from a dorm space? Of course, that feeling of comfort and security. College life alone is a tough one, that’s why it is important to have a safe place where you can rest and forget about the worries and stress after your academic activities.

But the reality is, dorm spaces are far from being cozy. Most of the time, a dorm room is a small space where you can share with a roommate. This space is probably enough for two single beds (or a double-decker), closets, and a study table. And that's it! The problem here is, what if you have too much stuff? And from time to time, you are buying and collecting items. Books, clothes, shoes, etc. And don't forget about your roomie. He might have a lot, too. So instead of having a home away from home, a place where you find comfort and security, what you've got is a room full of mess, cluttered stuff. What a stress! As a student, it is very important to have a stress-free place to help you concentrate on your studies.

Thinking of a solution? Don't worry! We have it solved for you! Finding a storage facility near your campus is one of the best solutions in decluttering your dorm. There are storage companies that offer services that best suit every student’s needs. Just like here at easyStorage. We offer easyCrates for students like you! easyCrates are 70-liter plastic containers perfect for storing extra shoes, seasonal clothes, books, and even sports gears. Visit easyStorage offers and promos for students for more information!

As a student, managing your time is hard enough. You just couldn't find time to declutter your dorm space every time.

Now, asking me what are the benefits of renting a storage facility to help you lessen the stress of tidying up your place? Here's the list.

1. Storage for your books and reference materials

As a student, expect more and more books and reference materials to pile up - for every semester and every subject, of course! You can't just dispose of these academic materials as soon as the semester ends. Someone from your family or friends might be needing them. A storage facility is perfect for storing these books so you don't have to pile them up in your dorm.

2. Extra closet for seasonal clothes and sports gear

Storage facilities are perfect for storing seasonal clothes and sports gear, too. Since seasonal clothes can only be worn depending on the season, you may want to keep the "not-in-season clothes" for the meantime in a storage facility, to free up some space in your closet, especially those winter jackets that are very thick. And also, if you are a student-athlete, a storage facility is a big help in keeping your sports gear and equipment.

3. Temporary storage during semestral breaks

A semestral break is one of the most awaited vacations for every student. This is a great time for much-needed relaxation and bonding with family and friends. If you need to move your stuff out from the dorm while on a break, a storage facility is a perfect place to house your stuff. It's better instead of taking them home and bringing them back again next semester. Hassle-free, isn't it?

There are storage facilities near the universities. Take advantage of this convenience instead of letting yourself bear the chaos of clutters in your dorm. Don't worry about your budget and allowances. Most of the fees are student-friendly, just like what easyStorage is offering.
