  • 1. A Duvet, pillows and bedding set


    Not only does it make your room feel like home, but it makes sleeping a lot easier.

  • 2. Towels

    Having a couple means keeping at least one clean a lot simpler.

  • 3. Clothes hangers

    Hanging your clothes prevents creases, and less creases means less ironing!

  • 4. Doorstop

    An open door makes it a lot easier to bond with your new housemates.

  • 5. Headphones

    Working in the library can be a lot more fun with some music, and there is always the chance you will want to work while your housemates want to party.

  • 6. Extension cable

    Most students arrive with all sorts of electricals, and these all need sockets.

  • 7. Toilet Roll

    This one is self-explanatory we hope.

  • 8. First Aid Kit

    Whether it is you or a friend, a well-stocked first aid kit is always helpful

  • 9. Kitchen Essentials – cutlery, mugs and glasses, pots and pans

    Ordering food everyday can become very expensive, and borrowing your housemate’s equipment is not always appreciated. If you forget anything, you can visit Bargain Corner in Pilkington where the Chaplain can help you with most essentials at bargain prices!

  • 10. Somewhere to back-up your data

    Power cuts, crashing computers, broken laptops….. Avoid the problem and always back up your work!


A few (non-essential) extras

  • 1. Picture frames and lots of photos


    Keep your friends and family close even when they are far away.

  • 2. Posters, a rug or other decorative items


    Everyone can get home-sick, so make sure you are as comfortable in your new place as possible.

  • 3. Your Netflix subscription


    Everyone needs some quiet time with their favourite film or TV series.

  • 4. Fancy dress outfits – especially some old school uniform


    You may be surprised how much use your fancy dress outfits.

  • 5. A little food to get you started


    Maybe even get your parents to grab you a shop before you go?
