If you're coming to university for the first time, you will probably be giving a great deal of thought to what you need to bring.
It can be easy to bring too much to university as you want to be sure that you're prepared for all eventualities. That's why we created this check list to make sure you bring all the essentials.
You might want to wait and source some of these locally once you arrive - and maybe consult with your new flatmates to make sure you don't even up with multiple sets of kitchen equipment.
Some items can also be ordered in advance from providers such as PingLocker, and be ready and waiting for you on arrival.
