A guide to University life

    If you're staying in halls of residence, apartments etc….  the information you will receive from your university should tell you what will be provided in your room. Many rooms will already have an information notice board, for example, so you may not need to buy one. Many students recommend taking only the bare minimum in terms of stationery, and then buying the rest as and when you need it after you've settled in.


    We are able to help you with these, as well as being cheaper than Tesco, Staples, WHSmiths etc…

A bag for your stuff
You'll want an everyday student bag for carting all your stuff around campus; something like a backpack or messenger bag will do fine.

Make sure it's waterproof, strong and durable. Make sure it has easy catches fastenings, and make sure that its big enough and strong enough to hold several large textbooks, folders, notepads, a water bottle and so on. Plus, make sure it has comfortable shoulder straps.
