What to take to university?!

Hello again,

I have been asked the same question now by friends and fellow university undergrads and I thought I should make a post here to clear it up for everybody!

“What shall I take to university?

I shall tell you 🙂


  • Mattress topper (for comfort)
  • Fitted sheets
  • 2 sets of bed sheets (in between laundry trips)
  • Bin
  • Desk lamp
  • Peel off hooks (in order to hang things)
  • Full length mirror
  • Door stopper (to welcome your flatmates)


  • Bathmat
  • Toothbrush holder
  • Bath towels
  • Hand towels
  • Loobrush (gross I know)
  • Bathroom cleaner
  • Toiletries


  • Big folders
  • Small folders
  • File boxes
  • Dividers
  • Plastic wallets
  • Popwallets
  • Staples
  • Paperclips
  • Printer


  • Lunchboxes for freezing
  • Pots and pans
  • Frying pan
  • Pizza tray
  • Baking tray
  • Ovendish
  • Colander
  • Jug
  • Steamer
  • Teatowels
  • Cloths and sponges
  • Oven gloves
  • Knives
  • Scissors
  • Cutlery
  • Spatula
  • Mixing bowl
  • Plates
  • Bowls
  • Mugs
  • Glasses
  • Serving spoon
  • Sandwhich bags
  • Chopping board


  • Medical kit- painkillers, plasters, cold & flu tablets (fresher’s flu)
  • Sewing kit
  • Laundry bag
  • Dustpan and brush
  • Loo roll
  • Clothes airer
  • Iron

 Also include all of your gadgets like your laptop, tablet, ipod, ipod dock, camera, spare phone and all of your chargers.

Don’t forget to pack your clothes! A good way of storing them all (because of your tiny uni wardrobe) is to only hang what will crease and fold the rest of your clothes and put them in a pretty storage box under your bed!

Don’t forget to check with the university what documents you will need to take in order for them to enroll and ID you e.g. passports, national insurance details, your confirmation letter and grade certificates.

I hope this is helpful in some way, feel free to question in the comments below or add anything else I may have forgotten!
