Manhattan Mini Storage Offers Two New Student Storage Programs to Help Solve the Summer Storage Conundrum

Each year, college students nationwide face a special challenge that has nothing to do with passing final exams, paying tuition bills or getting into the fraternity or sorority of their choice. The question they must answer is: Where am I going to put all stuff during the summer?

It’s a particular quandary for the more than half a million students attending one of New York City’s 110 colleges and universities.New York is the nation’s leading importer of college students, meaning it has more out-of-staters than any other city.

Which means Mom and Dad’s basement is not a viable option for summer storage.

Fortunately, Manhattan Mini Storage is introducing two new convenient, highly economical options for college students this summer, collectively known as Manhattan Mini Storage for Students.  Students can choose from either of the following options:

1)      Get 15% off the web price of a Personal Closet (approx. 4′ x 4′ x 4′) at any Manhattan Mini Storage location beginning April 15th.

2)      Get a Personal Closet (4′ x 4′ x 4′) for the entire summer (May through September) at Manhattan Mini Storage’s East 110thStreet location for a total of just $236, plus free shuttle service to and from the Columbia University/Barnard College campus.

“Unlike other student storage programs out there, we allow students to visit their storage room any time,” said Stacy Stuart, Executive Vice President for Marketing and Human Resources at Manhattan Mini Storage’s parent company, Edison Properties. “Students have their own lock and key. So they can take stuff out or put more stuff in throughout the summer.”

Stuart also points out: “If students go for $236 offer, they only have to prepay for half up front – a total of $118. We understand that most students are on a tight budget, so we wanted to be as flexible as possible.”

To find out more about either program or reserve a room today, students can visit or call 646-STORAGE.

15% off offer valid for reservations made 4/15/14-6/15/14 on Personal Closet (approx. 4’x4’x4′). 15% discount applied at check-in.
