Guide to Moving Back from University

As another academic year comes to an end many students will be moving out of halls of residence or rented properties to move back home for the summer holidays.

However there will be endless amounts of things that will need to be cleared out of your term time home. For example:

Winter clothes,

Bedding and Towels

Kitchen equipment like pots, pans, crockery and cutlery

Books and files


Electrical equipment like a TV, a sound system, a toaster, a microwaves and a kettle

Small items of furniture like a bookcase, a small chest of drawers or an office chair.

The problem is where is all this stuff going to be housed over the summer?

Mum and Dad won’t want it cluttering up their home, plus there is the logistics of moving it from your term time residence to home only to move it back in a few months’ time. If you move it into your accommodation for next year you will have to pay rent on that property during the summer plus how safe will it all be left in an empty for possibly up to 3 months.

The best solution is to put all your belongings into a self-storage unit.

If you are at a University in the North-West for example- Manchester, Salford or UCLAN Spaces and Places self-storage facilities in Manchester can offer you the perfect solution.
