What do I need to bring with me?

University Student life iQ life First year Student accommodation

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 checklist 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, including packs containing all you are likely to need for your bedroom, bathroom or kitchen, can also be ordered in advance from PingLocker, and be ready and waiting for you on arrival.

Most importantly, don't forget to complete check-in on our app in advance, so you have your Fastpass ready on your phone – it'll make moving in all the other stuff a lot quicker and easier, so you'll be arranging your new room in no time.
