Storage & Moving

Student Storage

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.Learn more about our student storage solutions below or find a Universal Storage Group facility near you today!
