What to bring to uni for your Drop and Go slot

By bzellie 07 Jul 2021

Arrivals at the University of Leicester will be a little different this year as you will be able to book a 'Drop and Go' slot. This allows you to bring some of your belongings in August before arriving and starting in September,. The following  is a suggestion of what you might bring during your 'Drop and Go' slot...

We've put together a list of things that would be worth dropping off, just remember you've got to think about whether you'll need them between now and September, if you don't then pack it up!

  • Bedding/duvet & pillows (only if you have bought new ones for university)
  • Winter clothes (fingers crossed we will have a nice hot summer so your winter woollies can be packed away)
  • Clothes hangers
  • Shoes 
  • Mirrors or any decorative items you've bought for your room
  • Desk lamp
  • Rug
  • Towels (bath and hand towels)
  • Kitchen utensils (pots and pans, plates, cutlery, Tupperware, etc)
  • Extension cables
  • Stationery/folders for university work
  • First aid box

Hopefully, you will have packed up and dropped off the main bulk of your belongings, so in September you will just need to bring your everyday items:

  • Toiletries (toothbrush, shampoo, etc) 
  • Important documents (ID, university correspondence, bank details, etc)
  • Laptop and charger
  • Television or games console
  • Other clothes and shoes
  • Chargers
  • Speakers
  • Food
  • Medication

We look forward to seeing you in September!
