That’s what I was feeling you were going to say. College was just a few years ago for me, so I know what a pain it can be. For a beginner, that sounds like a great idea. I remember the hell of having to do move-in and move-out, and getting kicked out of the dorms at holidays. I solved that problem later by going off-campus. Then I got a job in the dinning commons so I could eat like I lived in the dorms, but for free.
You might be able to save some space and trouble by renting a U-Haul bike trailer. I hear they have one that can easily haul a bike or two. Get it home, and no having to worry about where to stash the trailer.
