For a limited time, the storage company is offering college students 30 days of free self-storage at U-Haul owned and operated facilities.

“We don’t know how every student is affected. But we know they are affected,” said U-Haul President John Taylor. “More and more universities are giving instructions to leave campus and go home. Students and their parents are in need of moving and storage solutions. We have the expertise and network to help, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

To take advantage of the offer, you must be 19 with a valid driver’s license to operate vans and trucks and have a college ID.
