At Kangaroo Self Storage, we understand that the education sector has unique storage needs. From students requiring temporary storage during holidays to educational institutions needing space for books and equipment, self-storage offers practical solutions.

So, in this blog, we’re exploring how the education sector can benefit from our secure and affordable self-storage facilities. Let's delve into the various ways self-storage can positively impact this industry, whether you’re studying, teaching, or managing an educational facility.

Temporary Storage for Students

Moving between accommodations during holidays can be challenging for students, but our self-storage makes the process seamless and stress-free. Our flexible storage options allow students to store their belongings conveniently and securely. Whether for a few weeks while they get settled in their student accommodation, or for complete term-time storage, our units provide a safe haven for their possessions. From sports equipment to musical instruments and seasonal clothing, students can rest easy knowing their items are protected until they need them again. No need to burden family and friends or worry about limited space in halls; our self-storage facilities are here to help.

Storage for Educational Materials and Equipment

Educational institutions have a constant need for storage space. The demand for books, teaching materials, and equipment can quickly overwhelm limited on-campus storage facilities. Often, teachers share stockrooms, and alongside their endless to-do lists, it’s hard to find the time to organise these spaces and also decide whose responsibility it is to do so.

That's where our self storage units shine. Our wide range of unit sizes ensures that educational institutions can find the perfect fit for their storage needs. Whether it's storing surplus textbooks, maintaining a resource library, or safeguarding important equipment like projectors or lab tools, self-storage offers a secure and cost-effective solution. It also gives teachers space outside of the school building to dedicate to their supplies, which can offer the breath of fresh air needed to focus on other areas of teaching.

Space Outside of Student Accommodation

Student accommodation often lacks the space required to comfortably accommodate all of a student's belongings, especially during breaks. Self-storage allows students to easily declutter their halls and store extra items in a safe and accessible facility. Our student self-storage at Kangaroo provides ample space for furniture, appliances, and personal belongings. By temporarily moving these items to our facilities, students can create a more spacious and stress-free living environment, which is crucial for an enjoyable university experience.

Archive Storage for Educational Institutions

Educational institutions deal with extensive amounts of paperwork, records, and archives. Therefore, it's crucial to have a reliable storage solution that maintains the integrity and accessibility of these important documents. You guessed it; self-storage is the answer. Our facilities provide controlled environments, ensuring documents are protected from moisture, pests, and other hazards. Educational institutions can easily organise and label their archive boxes for efficient retrieval when needed, and with Kangaroo Self Storage, schools and universities can confidently manage their archives, freeing up valuable office space and streamlining administrative processes.

Secure Storage for Valuable Assets

Educational institutions often have valuable assets that require secure storage, such as:

  • Delicate musical instruments
  • Precious artwork
  • Expensive scientific equipment
  • Confidential documents

These items cannot be left to chance, so choosing self-storage is the best option. Our units have enhanced security features such as 24-hour CCTV, burglar alarms, and individual padlocks. Alongside this, our helpful staff are onsite during office hours, and even when they’re not around, you can access your unit. Only you have access to your storage unit, and having the freedom to enter it whenever necessary is crucial. With Kangaroo Self Storage, educational institutions can focus on what they do best, knowing their valuable assets are in safe hands with our team.

Benefits for Educational Events and Activities

Organising educational events and activities often requires storing equipment and supplies, so rather than crowding on-campus storage facilities or relying on expensive short-term rentals, self-storage offers a convenient and cost-effective alternative. Institutions can use our spacious storage units to house event-related items such as audio-visual equipment, exhibition materials, and sports gear.

What’s more? We have handy drive-up storage units at selected Kangaroo Self Storage locations, so you don’t need to worry about navigating stairs or narrow corridors; you can just drive straight to your unit and store your bulky items.
