10 Things Not To Forget To Take To University

1. A mattress protector

...because hygiene!

2. A notice board

So you don't lose those important lecture notes or your club pass!

3. Storage boxes

There is never enough wardrobe space.

4. Photos of your friends and family.

You'll miss them really, we promise!

5. A TV license

Streaming on BBC iPlayer still requires a TV License!

6. Tin opener

One of the small things you'll forget but ALWAYS need.

7. Tea towels

These go missing more than socks...

8. Tupperware

Plastic tubs for storing leftovers. Write your name on the lids!

9. A first aid kit

Someone's bound to need a plaster and an Ibuprofen (after a night of studying!)

10. Fancy Dress

Because it is uni, and fancy dress WILL happen, you don't want to be 1 of 5 wearing a bin bag.
