By hughero 23 Aug 2018

So, you've just received your place at University, but what should you pack?!

Here are the things you are definitely going to want to remember:

  • Documentation
  • Laptop
  • Money 
  • Photos from home, to make you feel more at home in your new place
  • Medicine - any medication you need, don't forget to register with a doctor (medication will be available to you in the UK too)

Most other items can be bought locally:

  • Bedding (pillows, quilt, sheets) 
  • Stationery
  • Warm clothes
  •  Towels
  • Toiletries 
  • Sports Kit
  • Cleaning items
  • Kitchen utensils 
  • BooksBlu-tac for putting up your favourite posters
  • Raincoat, this is Britain after all... 
  • Coffee, tea, mugs, food

There are also things that you CAN'T bring to uni:

  • Rice cookers ( you can buy and use a british safety standard rice cooker here) or chip fryers
  • Candles, incense sticks, tea lights
  • Smoking equipment, such as pipes and ashtrays
  • Dartboards or weapons of any kind (real or replicas - don't bring them!)

Better start packing!
