The Advantage of Storage Units for College Students

The Advantage of Storage Units for College Students

This Spring, thousands of college students across the country will be temporarily homeless as they transition from a dorm back to their home or from one rental to another. There are a couple things that can make this transition much easier and Double Springs has those solutions!


Most universities do not allow students to leave their furniture and belongings in a dorm room over the summer. Additionally, many students who live off-campus have rental leases that last only the length of the school year. This is where local storage units for college undergraduates come in handy! They provide an option for students who can’t or don’t want to haul everything back home every summer.

For college students that live off campus and deal with leases that can end a couple months too early or too late, dealing with what to do with your furniture can be a real issue. If you’re lucky enough to have a storage unit nearby your temporary residence, ask about month-to-month rental pricing.


A storage unit doesn’t do much good if you have no way of transporting your belongings to it. In addition to conveniently located storage units, Double Springs offers U-Haul truck rentals and a variety of helpful packing supplies! From boxes to wrapping supplies to towing starter kits, we’ll make it easier for you to store, pack and transport your furniture this summer.

College students – make life easier on yourself with these solutions! Contact us at one of our offices in Fayetteville, Elkins or Springdale for more information.

    I liked that you said that one reason to consider renting out a storage unit, as a college student, is that most universities won’t allow students to keep their furniture in the dorm room. I would imagine that this would leave students with furniture that they wouldn’t know what to do with. If I were a college student I would consider using a storage unit to store my furniture and extra belongings in so that I wouldn’t have to get rid of them.

    I didn’t realize that you can’t leave your furniture in dorms over the summer. My sister is going off to college and she won’t want to have to move furniture back over the break and then back again. I’ll have to look into mini storage units.
