Storage for the University of Illinois at Chicago

With 30,000 students enrolled at the University of Illinois at Chicago, there’s a lot of competition for everything near the campus. Everything from affordable student housing to parking spots seem to be difficult to come by. Thankfully, student storage is easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy if you’re a UIC student.

Free Boxes. No Registration Fees. Easy Storage.

When you live in a big city like Chicago, finding storage solutions in your specific zip code that don’t cost an arm and leg can be difficult. Those looking for ‘60607 storage’ might find it, but the likelihood that it will be convenient, in your price range, and clean is slim-to-none. Because many Chicagoans don’t have cars, especially those who are students, it is also unlikely that you’ll be able to drive to a storage unit outside of town.

Doorage solves the student storage problem by bringing affordable college storage to you! Simply select the type of service you want (by the item or all-inclusive package), order all of the box kits you need, and select your dates for pickup and delivery. If you don’t know your delivery dates don’t worry. You can change up to 72 hour in advance. Once your box kit arrives at your student housing, pack the boxes and wait for our team to pick up. Our team will take it off to our high tech facilities and bring it back when you are ready! Summer college student storage reinvented!

We’re essentially GrubHub for your storage, but instead of cold Taco Bell, we deliver room-temperature storage items.

If you use our UIC student storage in Near West Side, you will love that you only have to pay for the exact square footage of space you use. Rather than paying for a half-empty storage unit, you only pay for the space you use in our storage warehouse. We have some of the best student storage prices in the business, and we can store just about anything from your microwave and minifridge to your bicycle and futon.

Oh, and when you choose us as your UIC student storage option, you’ll have a chance to win a $500 gift card to your school bookstore. We know that doesn’t solve the crippling student debt crisis, but hey, you can use it to buy a sweatshirt that says UIC on it so it’s all worth it!!!

“I was supposed to get a storage unit with a friend this past summer but decided last minute on Doorage. Everyone was very helpful and just had this fun energy. In the end my stuff came back perfect and right to my room. My friend’s stuff ended up damaged when her unit was broken into. Doorage was Awesome!”
