Summer Storage

If you’re attending college or university in Houston, there’s a good chance you only spend 9 years out of the month here. Most students end up returning to their hometown during the summers, traveling, or doing summer internships or work in another city. Storing your belonging during those 3 months you’re not here is an annual conundrum for the busy student.

Although some colleges offer on-campus summer storage, it’s usually reserved for a handful of students, or at a very steep price. Students leasing apartments might scramble to find someone to sublet their apartment during the summer, which can carry it’s own risks. Most choose to rent month-to-month. Bringing your stuff back to your parents might cost more than you think, depending on how far you live. Rather than hauling your belongings across the state or cross-country, the best, and most affordable option is most likely a self-storage unit.
