The cicadas may still be singing their song during the hazy, lazy days of August, but the temperatures dip quickly during its nights. Labour Day is just around the corner, and with it the long weekend foretells the final days of the CNE. All signs suggest that summer is drawing to a close — which means your first day back on campus is nearing faster than you think!
Our own school days weren’t so long ago that the crew at Abacus Self Storage can’t remember what this time of year feels like. On the one hand, you’re anxious to get the fall semester started. You’re finally leaving your childhood home for the refuge of your dorm or apartment where your closest friends are waiting. On the other hand, you wish the season could last just a little bit longer. After summer’s whirlwind of BBQs, beach hangouts, and trips, you aren’t ready to hit the books full time yet.
Though many people think you have it easy, recalling their own student years as the best time of their lives, university life is far from stress-free. What these nostalgic individuals fail to remember is the average student’s day. In between meeting tons of new people and partying, there’s a lot of hard work that goes into university.
It’s not always studying either. Moving back and forth from campus can take its toll, especially if you have a lot stuff to truck to your dorm. Even on a student budget, it’s easy to accumulate a lot of stuff. Just think of all of the souvenirs you picked up using your VIA Rail Canada 150 Youth Pass! You might not have enough space in your new dorm room or apartment to accommodate all of these things you picked up.
With your dad eyeing your bedroom with ideas of making it a study, you can’t exactly leave this stuff with your parents. But that doesn’t mean you have to throw it all out either.
We sympathize — we really do! That’s why we’ve made it easier than ever for students to place their belongings into storage. We have short-term stays that are perfect for when you need to store your things temporarily as you and your friends scour the city for an apartment. Meanwhile our long-term options are ideal for those students who need a place for their belongings all semester long.
With Toronto so close to our GTA facilities, we’re a convenient choice for those students leaving North York or Thornhill for a downtown dorm or apartment. With one of our North York or Thornhill self storage units, you won’t have to travel far or wide in order to access your things just in case you need something right away.
We also accommodate your unusual student schedule. Like all of our facilities, our Thornhill self storage allows 24/7 personal access to your unit, so you don’t have to skip class during the day just to get to your things.
Whether you take us up on our mini storage units in North York or any other of our GTA facilities, make sure you check out our special deals on our homepage first. You may be eligible for a promotion that can keep your rental costs low. Call us to confirm and we’ll give you a quote that works even with your student budget.
