Back To University

Posted on August 31st, 2016




Once summer is over it means back to school! September/October is the start of term for university students. We’ll have some tips below to help you prepare back to the student lifestyle.

Home comforts

There’s no place like home! Your living space is your comfort zone, especially your bedroom. Making your home comfortable is very important because university can be stressful at times; after a stressful day you can relax at home the way you’re supposed to. Try bringing items from home that will help so you don’t become homesick.

  • Games console
  • Food recipes
  • Docking station
  • Bed sheets


Getting Organised

Being organised is key, it will make your life a whole lot easier and less stressful. Depending on your course you will need some essentials for your lectures/modules. A few essentials to help prepare your day can be a diary or calendar which will help prep for reminders and deadlines that way you can keep track without falling behind

  • Pens/Pencils
  • Note pads
  • Books
  • Laptops
  • Usb
  • Back up hard drive

Save the pennies 

Piggy banks aren’t just for your teenage pocket money. Start a coin jar when you get back to uni, and add your loose change after each day/night. Before long you’ll have enough to treat yourself to a nice dinner out – always a bonus on a student’s budget!

Need help storing some items so you can have space? BWI will be more than happy to cater to your needs where you utilise 10sqft lockers for students.
