Whether you’re a student at the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan or the University of Salford, taking your belongings back to your family home at the end of each academic year can be a bit of a nightmare to say the least – either for you or your parents! When each term ends, lugging your belongings around on trains, cramming your stuff into a friend’s small car or begging your parents to come and pick you up can make moving in and out between terms a real challenge. That’s why at Storage World, we provide you with super affordable, flexible storage space that you can rent for a few weeks, a couple of months, or all-year-round should you wish! That means that when you go home for the summer, or head off on your travels, you can take just what you need and leave your other belongings safely in a central location that makes it so simple for you when it comes to moving into a new student house ahead of your next university year.


Why choose Storage World for student storage?

At Storage World, we provide storage space in varying sizes, from 5 sqft lockers to 25 sqft units, right up to 200 sqft storage rooms. Heights also vary between 4ft to 12ft and are suitable for storing all kinds of items from books, clothes and suitcases to larger household furniture. That’s why we’re the ideal storage solution for students based in Manchester, as you can rent exactly as much room as you require. We have storage experts on hand to advise you on which size unit is right for you based on what it is you wish to store to ensure that you only ever pay for the storage space that you need, and no more.


Our contracts are also very flexible, which means you can use your storage space as a long-term or as a short-term solution as per your requirements. Whether it’s a couple of weeks, a few months, the summer break or all year, you can safely store your belongings at Storage World, with no tie-in, you’re free to leave whenever you need to. Simply tell us your desired move-out date when you first move in, or if you’re not sure when that will be, just give us two weeks notice.

You’ll also have complete peace of mind that your items are safe while you’re away, as you will be the sole keyholder to your unit. All of our units are internally housed, so if you’re away for a long time, you can rest assured that your items won’t suffer at the hands of any environmental factors. Our units are dry ensuring your items are preserved and protected during the entire storage period. Our storage facilities are ultra modern and can be adapted to your needs, so that you can store and organise your items exactly how you want to for your own ease of access.

You can gain access to your unit whenever you wish, so if you’re storing long-term, you can consider your student storage space an extension of your home, meaning you can live in a clutter-free environment and enjoy your halls of residence or student house to its full potential. We have ample parking available at all of our sites, and you can even choose a unit that has drive-up access to make moving in and out as seamless as possible.

We also make the experience of moving into your unit as stress-free as possible, offering robust and durable packaging materials at a discounted price of 25% off. This means no extra trips to the shops or sourcing alternative packaging materials, you can do it all in one place to make organising your housing throughout university easy and hassle-free.

A lot of the students storing belongings with us are living away in Manchester, miles from their family home and so do not have the help on hand to get moving. If this is the case for you, we can help you at all stages of your storage move-in journey, with a discounted ‘man with van’ service, and our expert storage team on-site to help you move boxes into or out of your unit when you arrive at our storage facility. Maintain your independence while living away at university, while having a great team at hand to help you when you need it.

We understand that while at university, budgeting well can be a big priority, so have designed our pricing accordingly. We have a variety of options available, led by the number of items you plan to store and the duration. Providing we have the unit size you require available, you can move in immediately or even reserve now for your expected move in date, we’re here when you need us.
