Your Student Storage Solution
Student life is full of adjustments. One of the biggest adjustments students face is finding the storage space they need. College dorms, apartments, and rental houses often lack the elbow room that students typically enjoy back home.
Rather than do without knick-knacks, seasonal clothes, and other belongings, there’s a way you can create storage space close to campus: a self storage unit from Universal Storage Group.
Whether you need more closet space or a larger unit to store all your college furniture over the summer, we’ve got you covered with our wide selection of storage unit sizes.

Planning to store your college furniture, clothing, or other items over the summer during the break? A climate controlled unit is perfect for you.

How big of a storage unit should I rent for my student storage needs?
The storage unit size you need depends on how many items you have to store, and how long you plan to store them. At Universal Storage Group, our storage facilities include a wide range of storage unit sizes for all kinds and levels of storage needs. Common storage unit sizes for student storage include:
- 5×5 storage unit—the size of a small walk-in closet; ideal for seasonal clothing
- 5×10 storage unit—the size of a small shed; ideal for small furniture or sports equipment
- 10×10 storage unit—the size of a small garage; can fit the belongings of a one-bedroom student apartment or large dorm room

How can I use my student storage unit?
The sky is nearly the limit for your student storage unit. From cozy sweaters and coats to books, musical instruments, and more, you’ve got a wide range of items you can put in your unit. There are a few ways you cannot use your storage unit, however. You cannot live in your unit, keep live animals in your unit, or store stolen property, flammable materials, or perishable food items.
