If you’re a college student, there’s no need to bring everything back to your summer home when classes let out. Instead, you can simply rent a storage unit close to campus and keep your college things there until fall comes back around. At that point, you can close the storage unit rental, or you can keep it year-round and simply grab what you need when you need it. Here are some considerations to make before selecting a student storage unit from just any storage facility:

How much extra storage space do you need?

There’s no reason to pay for storage space you won’t use. You also don’t want a storage unit that doesn’t quite fit your couch. Instead, use our self-storage calculator and consult with us on any questions you may have. Thanks to our years of experience, we can give you helpful estimates and find an affordable storage unit that’s neither too big nor too small!

Do you need a climate-controlled storage unit?

Musical instruments, paintings, photos, antiques, electronics, furs, paper — many of our possessions benefit from having controlled temperature and humidity levels. If you want your items to be preserved in the best way possible, a climate-controlled storage unit is well worth it.

Student storage doesn’t have to be confusing or overly expensive. Let our committed team show you just how easy it can be. Contact Fountain Lakes Storage in St. Charles, or reserve a secure storage unit online!
