Whether you require short term or long term storage, we offer a cost effective way of freeing up space in your student accommodation. You can use our packing materials free of charge. Including removal boxes and packing tape. And our professional removals team will collect your stuff so you don’t need to worry about transport. Did you know we also offer small removals and part load removals?

Summer storage for students

If you are moving out of your student accommodation over the summer, you can save yourself time and effort by using our summer storage service. This is especially useful for students who need to vacate their student accommodation over the summer, but will be returning to study in the autumn.

Summer storage saves you all the hassle and expense of shipping your possessions overseas, or back to your family home. With your items securely stored in Edinburgh, you are free to travel, move back home, or work abroad. Then when you return to Edinburgh in September, we will deliver your items to your door. 

We have local storage units for college students in Edinburgh. Our modern, insulated storage warehouse has 24 hour CCTV, fire and intruder security systems which are monitored 24/7.

Edinburgh is very much a university city. It is home to six universities; the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Napier University, Queen Margaret University, Royal College of Surgeons and Scotland's Rural College (SRUC). This means that students have always been an important and much respected part of the fabric of the city. 

Blackhall Moving and Storage have always been delighted to help this diverse and much-valued section of our local community.

The city has the second highest number of students in higher education per 1,000 citizens of any UK city. In 2019 this was 130 students per 1,000 citizens. There are well over 84,000 students in Edinburgh, with 62,100 of these studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

Most students either rent a room in a shared flat, or an apartment in one of the many student residencies in Edinburgh. Popular areas for student accommodation include Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Newington, which are all within walking distance of Edinburgh Uni.

In recent years there has been huge growth in the availability of custom built student accommodation. Traditional halls of residence are located at Pollock Halls, The Pleasance, and Heriot Watt. In addition to these, there are many newer developments around the city. Areas such as Fountainbridge, Tollcross, Haymarket, Leith Walk and Abbeyhill are all growing in popularity with students.

We serve all these areas and are familiar with them all. To find out more about student storage, small removals, or part load removals, please get in touch.
