Get Ready For Back To Uni Season With Poundstretcher

It's finally that time of year; uni is now looming ever closer. Whether you're a fresh-faced student straight out of college/a gap year, or a mature student, it's always a good idea to have a checklist of the university essentials, and Poundstretcher is here to help!

Items including your passport, driving license, documents regarding your student loan, clothes, bank card, laptop, TV, and all the other essentials to student life are a given. You’re bound to take all of them, right? However, how about the rest of the things you’re going to have to pack? All the items you'll need to buy especially for student life?

Doesn't matter if you're going to be a fresher moving into Halls or returning and living with friends in a rented student house. The below checklists are ideal for your uni survival.

If you are entering Halls of Residence or even some student accommodation, then you may not need certain items (a toaster, iron, ironing board, and even the cleaning supplies are usually provided when in Halls). If in doubt, it's best to consult the university residential services.

Miscellaneous

And there we have it. Everything (and then some) you may need whilst at university. Some of the above can be altered or removed to suit your own personal preferences and needs. Splitting the cost between flatmates and university friends is also a great and affordable way to go about things.
