World Student Day at McCarthy’s

Crack out the instant noodles, set your alarm for that early lecture and dust off your forgotten text books, tomorrow it’s World Student Day! On the 15th October universities across the globe will celebrate multiculturalism, diversity and cooperation amongst students worldwide.

The idea for World Student Day (WSD) was originally developed by a group of undergraduates from the University of Prague who wanted to commemorate the lives of fellow students killed in WWII. Since then, WSD has grown in popularity, becoming a regular fixture in the education calendar as universities use the opportunity to appeal to prospective students, receive feedback from current ones and share news of the good they do for their local communities. The day is also used to increase awareness of how a university education could assist in improving the lives of people all over the globe.

However, aside from the good points of uni, of which there are many, the notoriously short term times coupled with the sheer amount of clothes, kitchenware, books and everything else students accumulate means that lugging everything home every couple of months can be tricky. Even more so for international students!

Or maybe there’s not quite enough space in your room and it’s overflowing with things you can’t quite part with. In either situation why not organise some student storage with McCarthy’s?

Self-storage rooms are available to rent in Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield from only £6 per week and range from the size of a broom cupboard right up to that of the whole halls of residence. Spaces are secure, clean and private with pin access, continuous monitoring by CCTV and 24-hour access.  Storage can be hired immediately and if you don’t have enough to fill a space by yourself or are looking to save some extra money you can lease an area with some friends.

Making sure your precious items are safe and well cared for is always at the top of our agenda. All three self-storage branches have full ranges of high quality packing material available at receptions. Items include boxes in various sizes, tape, bubble wrap, marker pens, furniture blankets, padlocks and various special protective covers for chairs, sofas and beds. Those who don’t fancy squashing everything into a car ahead of multiple journeys can arrange for a ‘Man and a Van’ to pop along to collect up any items ahead of bringing it to a McCarthy’s Storage World site.

If you have any questions or would like to enquire about our smart storage solutions give us a call on 0113 350 9590 or visit our website and use our online booking form.

All in all a painless experience.
Would highly recommend.

5 Stars

Really friendly and helpful customer service and explained everything clearly. Easy to reserve and new facility in York seems well secured and easy to access, with handy equipment to use (particularly with extended hours - at additional cost). Only minor comment for improvement during these times would be to have sanitise stations near the keypads as these are touch points for everyone using the facility.

Really good service and nice units. Easy access, great location, nothing to fault
