Starting a New College Semester

Two young women packing for college

With the end of August now just a week away, college students across the greater St. Louis area are getting ready to start a new semester, if they haven’t already. While this year may look a bit different in terms of how classes are scheduled and organized, if you’re a student, you’re likely excited to get started, if for no other reason but to have a set routine. At EZ Storage®, we’re here to help you find the ideal self-storage unit, should you need to store anything as you start another school year.

Moving to a New Place

Your summer living situation may have been different than years past due to COVID-19, but if you’re moving back into the dorms or relocating to a new apartment, it can be a good idea to go through your belongings before you move. You might be living on your own for the first time, and you’ll have to decide what to take with you, what to leave behind, and what to put into storage.

If you’re going to be living with roommates, either in the dorms or an apartment, you likely won’t be able to bring everything you own with you. Storing certain items, such as furniture or seasonal apparel, can help you create more room in a shared living space.

Starting School Online

If this semester is starting online for you, or you’ll be on campus part of the time and home part of the time, it’s important to have a dedicated workspace so that you can focus on school. If you’re worried about clutter in your bedroom or makeshift office space, why not rent a small storage unit and put those extra things somewhere else?

You might have boxes or tubs that are taking up space in your closet, and by moving a few of them into storage, you can put everything else away in the closet, including additional clothes, shoes, and miscellaneous items. This will give you the room you need to work as you take classes online for the first part of the semester.

Affordable Storage Options

As a college student, money is always a factor, and you might be worried about the cost of renting a local storage space. At EZ Storage®, we’re always working to make our units as affordable as possible, and we can help you find a space that fits your budget. You can also rent a unit with friends or roommates and split the cost between multiple people.

Be sure to ask about any specials we’re offering, including discounts for area college students. We know that budgeting can be tough, but if you need a secure place to store some belongings, we’re here to help.
