Packing for university | What to bring
Preparing for University life can be a little daunting and you may end up packing more than you really need.
So, before you start packing everything, check out our lists of what you'll need...
It might be worth bring a few copies of these in case your originals go missing!
*You will be provided with a bed and a mattress protector but you need to bring your own bedding. Asda, Tesco, Ikea and lots of other shops sell duvets/pillows/sheets.
You can also purchase a bedding pack from the main reception for £30.
You can always pool together with flatmates when you arrive to get some of the essentials such as toilet roll if you're sharing but best to bring some for your first week or so at least!
We recommend you to visit the Chaplaincy before buying crockery and cutlery. The Chaplaincy collects kitchen items left in halls and distributes them for FREE to the new students!
