If you’re an out-of-state or international student, you are beginning to understand the struggle of summer storage. Luckily for you, OTH has created a list of storage options for you to take advantage of this summer!
1. If you’re an international student, The Dashew Center has summer storage options available (although in our opinion, a bit pricey). But there is a nice comfort in having UCLA look after all your valuables while you’re at home. And they also have shipping options available if you wanted to send your stuff home for the summer.
2. For cheaper options, there is a public storage unit on Sawtelle and Olympic called Socal Self Storage that lots of UCLA students use for storage over the summer. UCLA students have recently came up with Bruin Bins, a service that will provide you with move-out boxes, pick up your items and store them away for the summer! Support a fellow Bruin.
3. By far the easiest option, befriend someone from SoCal! Why pay to have your stuff sit in a box when you can have a friend take it home and keep it there for free! And considering the demographics of UCLA, you should be able to find a person who is from Southern California, no problem.
