You’ve made it through Fresher’s week, have met your housemates or neighbours and are settling into your lecture timetable. Starting a new term at university is simultaneously an exciting and daunting time. Up-routing to a new area and new living accommodation is no easy task and takes a period of acclimatisation.
It’s also very tempting to pack up all of your worldly possessions, stack the car to the rafters and transport everything to your student accommodation. If you’ve moved into halls or a shared house/flat by now, you may well have realised that student accommodation is often not spacious or well equipped with storage space. The hanging space for clothes is often better suited to a capsule wardrobe, not an extensive collection of attire for all seasons. What you may also have not banked on is every one of your flat mates turning up with the same bits of equipment, and you may well have multiple kettles, toasters, sets of saucepans and the like.
Realistically, many types of student accommodation, managed by universities, also require the rooms to be vacated during the holidays. So you may not be able to leave all of your possessions in your rooms all year round. Clarify this with your university. Equally, if your property is rented from a private landlord, you may not be able to leave possessions in the property during the summer, for example.
Fear not, this is where self-access storage facilities come into play. No matter whether it’s a few boxes, pieces of furniture, bikes or musical instruments; we offer rooms in a range of sizes to ensure that you only pay for what you need. To make it even more cost efficient you can group together with a set of friends and share a self-storage room between yourselves and split the cost.
We welcome visitors to call into our offices on Foxes Lane, Wolverhampton and are happy to give a tour of the facilities.
