There are like a dozen chests down there you can store stuff in as long as you like.
Did you also go upstairs to your personal room. If you do, go outside, there are teleporters outside lined up in a huge line around the spire. Each one takes you instantly to a specific mages guild. Sort of like a central teleporter location.
Also, did you create your own follower using the salts? On the first floor, go up the ramp and the things in front of you (looks like an altar) if you buy the candles from people in town (your quest tells you how) you can create any of the salt creatures (i.e. the oblivion creature that looks like rocks swirling around) when they die they have salts, collect enough (or buy) and by clicking on the altar you get a follower that will go anywhere with you, even stays around when you summon creatures, very handy.
Ah, yes, I did see that armory, I'd forgotten! I didn't use it because I didn't want to bother with loading up another room when teleporting. I also didn't want to have to walk into a room and think "Ok, the 1st chest on the left is daedric armor and swords, the 2nd is glass, third is potions and magic clothes, etc." I guess being lazy
I just found it easier to have it all out in the open.
It's also probably a hold-over from Elder Scrolls, where I did what Stewed
did to a more involved level. I literally had full suits of armor laid out on the floor, in the shape of a person, etc. Yes - I'm a nerd.
I've no clue why they ditched that level of "aiming" when dropping stuff in Oblivion. It drives me nuts that you can drop something only to have it fly and land 5 feet away from you. If you barely nudge your stick and drop the same thing again, it'll land directly under you. There just doesn't seem to be any real way to control it.
