Lists, lists, lists!
There are a million-and-one things to think about when you’re moving house, let alone if you’re moving away from home for the first time.
Try and keep things simple and avoid bringing too much stuff with you.
Take a look at our list of essentials:
- Driving licence or passport as proof of ID
- Your booking reference number, a copy of your offer letter/email or a payment receipt
- Bedding including duvet and cover, pillows and covers, sheets
- Clothes hangers
- Cleaning, washing up and laundry items
We also think it’s a good idea to wait to buy your cooking utensils and crockery until you arrive so you can decide what to buy between your flatmates.
And who needs six colanders anyway?! They just take up essential cupboard space you need for your healthy snacks and meals.
