Storage Tips for Students Navigating a Transition

As a college student, you have plenty of to-dos on your schedule. Figuring out where to keep your stuff during transitional phases doesn’t have to be one of them. At Devon Self Storage, we’ve helped students safeguard their belongings with conveniently located storage units since 1988. With facilities in Cordova, TN and other communities around the country, we’ve learned a thing or two about helping people stay organized during all kinds of changes.

Organize Your Space

Whether you’re living in a cramped dorm room or sharing a rental, you could probably use more elbow room. Thankfully, storage containers, adhesive wall hooks, and other accessories can help you make the most of the space you do have. Try these organizing tricks:

  • Use bed risers and under-bed storage containers
  • Supplement your closet space with clothes racks
  • Store towels and sheets in hanging shoe organizers
  • Keep track of small items with a key-and-mail organizer
  • Create vertical and overhead space with adhesive wall hooks

But remember: check with the school or your landlord before attempting any storage maneuvers that will leave marks or holes, as every building has different policies regarding wear and tear.

When Students Need Storage Units 

Events ranging from the predictable to the unexpected can create a need for self storage. Here are just a few situations that can call for a storage unit:

  • Summer break
  • Studying abroad
  • Cramped dorms or living quarters
  • Parents moving or running out of space for your things
  • Unexpected move due to fire
  • Problems with landlord or roommates

We can help students find the right-sized storage unit at our facility in Cordova, TN and other locations.

Keep Ownership of Sentimental Items

College is often a time where people make great connections and learn important things about themselves and the world. However, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the fast-paced world of college and transitional periods. A storage unit can help you keep sentimental items you might not otherwise be able to. If you do, your future self will thank you for it!
