School is back in session, and if you’re studying in your hometown, you’re likely living at home or with roommates. There are a few places to get your work done: at school, at the library, or at home.
The first option comes with many distractions, whether it’s friends coming by, or the hustle and bustle of crowds moving from class to class. Your local library may not be easily accessible, or you don’t like being in a public environment while you study. And there are many distractions at home, whether it’s roommates trying to hang out, parents asking you to do chores, or video games calling your name.
Did you know that you can rent a tiny room away from noise and distraction to use as a ‘private office’? Believe it or not, a storage unit can be a comfortable, quiet place to study–and fits a student’s budget.
In a properly ventilated, climate-controlled facility, you can set up a workspace and access it from Monday through Sunday, morning to evening.
Here are four reasons why you should consider renting a storage unit as your ‘private office’:
A space that’s yours
With a storage unit, you can make it your own. Bring in a desk, shelves, lamps, a rug, and whatever you need to create a comfortable workspace. You can be clean or messy and no one will judge. Do you tend to have papers and binders and textbooks everywhere while you’re studying? Does your desk explode into a such a mess, it might as well have been hit by a hurricane? If you like organized chaos and don’t want to put things away in between study sessions, having a ‘private office’ means you can leave it out, books open to the right page, lab reports and worksheets side by side.
Keep school separate
As a student, it can sometimes be tough to avoid the slippery slope to burnout. You might have a lot of pressure riding on this school year. It’s important to take the time to unwind and let your mind relax. With an offsite ‘office’, you can separate your school life and personal life, going home only to relax and recharge in your sanctuary.
Ultimate peace and quiet
Your neighbours will (likely) be inanimate objects, which means they won’t play loud music or talk while you’re trying to study. Sit down for a couple of hours in solitude, and be more efficient than ever.
