Empty Room

Don't be left with an empty room.

Whether you’re going to university for the first time of you’re going into you’re second or third year. Now is the time to be thinking about and preparing for moving in so you can get back to studying.

Perhaps you’ve grouped together with a few mates or you’re bravely going it alone in a shared house to make some new friends. You’ll still need to think about the things you’re going to need when you get there.

I remember my time at university and wish I’d have planned things out a little better or at least been more prepared. And that’s why I’m here to help.

So, you’re new digs. Do you know what’s provided and what will be there when you arrive? If you’ve never lived on your own and had to look after yourself, you might be surprised at what you take for granted. I certainly did! Imagine not having any toilet paper at the worst possible time. Or franticly looking for a corkscrew to open the two bottles of wine you got on the cheap.

So what exactly will you need?

Well, for first-timers and those moving out of university accommodation, you’ll almost definitely need some bed linen and bathroom towels. Everyone needs to sleep and you’ll want to feel fresh for lectures.

Not all accommodation will give you everything you need. The next thing you should be thinking about is how you’re going to be eating, and more importantly, with what? Make sure you equip your kitchen with everything you need to make a decent meal. Don’t fall into the stereotype of eating beans on toast three times a day. University was where I really learnt how to cook. Stock up with a kitchen pack so you can eat well and keep that brain ticking!

Electrical items are something else that doesn’t generally come included with accommodation. A hoover, toaster, kettle, microwave and vacuum cleaner are all things you are going to need. Luckily, this can all be bought in a very student-friendly package.

For those of you who are in need of a little more help, something like the emergency survival kit might be useful. It gives you everything you need to kick-start life in your new pad. After all, the first thing you’re going to want to do when you settle in is have a brew!

The whole thing boils down to three things; Eat, Sleep & Clean. As long as you’ve got that covered, you’ll be fine!

To make sure you are equipped, just take a look at our Student Survival Kits where you’ll find everything you need at prices that are fit for students.
