Now that you have received your A-Level results and you’ve got  your place at Uni (with us, yay!) sorted it is time to start thinking of what to pack. But seriously, what on earth do you need to take with you?

We chatted to our Officers to find out some ideas of what pack so this article as a guide to help you pack your own necessities!

First, some quick tips:

  • Travel as light as you can.  Most likely you’ll be morning into a small room with very limited storage space. Think one large suitcase of clothes, a couple of boxes of other stuff and a bin-liner of bedding is about the right level.
  • Don't splash out on expensive stuff. You'll find perfectly decent duvet covers, kettles and stationery across many department stores and supermarkets. Most stuff won't survive your first year so there's no point binning tons of cash on it.
  • Before you go out and buy anything, make sure you've checked what the uni will be providing. You don't want to turn up with a lot of stuff that's already been laid on.
  • Need anything else? Head to our Freshers area to find out everything you need to know!

With that in mind, you can use our tick-list. And,  remember don't worry! Wherever you're going, they're going to have shops. So if you do forget anything vital, you can always buy another when you get there.
