student uni london

The period between terms when you have to move out of student accommodation is always a busy time for students. There are no lectures to attend, but this is a prime time to find new accommodation before everything starts. And things are even busier in London, which has one of the world’s highest concentrations of educational institutions.

If you’re a student moving to London soon, here’s a tip: accommodation and storage go hand in hand.

Here are seven reasons why London students need storage space:

1. You’ve got more things than you can take with you

Once you start boxing your belongings, you may be surprised at how much stuff you’ve accumulated – especially if you’ve been living at your parents’ home! In London, it may be tough (or expensive) to find a big enough room.

2. London rents are pricey

Because London rents are expensive, you’ll want to get the space you need, and no more. This means you’ll have to be ruthless deciding what you can and can’t take with you.

3. You’ve got a hobby

You may be into sports like cycling or canoeing. Maybe you enjoy painting or sewing. Some hobbies require equipment and tools that take up a lot of space – more than what a single room can offer.

4. You’re running a part-time business

It’s common for London students to run a part-time online business to help with the bills. Selling clothes, handmade crafts, or collectables means you’ll need that extra storage space.

5. For convenience: student storage

Sometimes, you just want to have peace of mind and know that your belongings and valuables are in a secure location. This way, you can focus on your studies and on exploring the city.

6. You plan to move often

Students move as often as every academic year. Having some of your belongings in storage will save you time in your next move, as you won’t have to pack and unpack them every time.

7. You’re going home from college for the holidays

Many students go back home for the holidays. If you don’t want to take all your belongings with you just for a few days or weeks (or months in Summer), student storage is the right solution.

As you can see, storage is a must for London students. If you’d like to know your options, get in touch with our team. We offer safe and hassle-free student storage services in London.
