Pack light for your first term at university, taking just the essentials to get you through your first few weeks. Clothes, bedding, stationery, basic cookware, and your toiletries are all you need, plus a few of your favourite things to help see off the homesick blues. There’s no point hauling everything bar the kitchen sink to your student digs – remember, university towns have shops too.
We asked some of our favourite student bloggers and YouTubers for their top tips for what to take to uni – those little extras that will make your new life a bit easier. We don’t suggest you pack all these items, but select the ones that seem most sensible to you.
