From calculators to recorders, headphones, and a variety of other electronic necessities, modern students need a safe place to store their sensitive equipment. Colorado is known for its rapid weather changes, which can wreak havoc on computers, televisions, and so on. Climate-controlled storage is an ideal solution for seasonal concerns, providing consistent temperatures and humidity levels to keep your valuables safe.

When storing electronics, it’s important to check the condition of batteries attached to your various devices. Any signs of corrosion can lead to future problems if left idle for weeks or months at a time. We recommend storing batteries in individually sealed bags for the best level of protection.


Despite our focus on electronics and modern technology, many students rely on physical textbooks and lined paper for a reliable education. If you’re planning on stashing your textbooks, notes, and other learning materials, it’s important to consider the conditions of your storage unit. Colorado is known to boast bouts of heavy moisture throughout much of the year, making it important to keep an eye out for moisture.

The organic nature of paper goods and the glue utilized can both attract unwanted pests. You can protect your textbooks from danger with a rigid plastic tub. Many stores offer affordable options that can safely house papers, notes, books, and more.
