Top Tips for When You’re Moving to University

August 14, 2017

If you’re moving to university, you’re likely to be feeling a strong mixture of emotions, some positive and some negative. Now you have your grades and are ready to fly the nest, you may feel overwhelmed by all of the things you need to do before you make the move, from packing to finding reliable van hire.

We understand that moving can be stressful, especially if you’re moving away from home for the first time. Read the latest Sky Van Hire blog post for tips on what to take to university to ensure you have the best time possible:

Personal Documents

Of course, you’ll want to take your good luck charms and sentimental items, but personal documents such as your passport, admissions letter, bank details and student finance documents are essential. When you first move into student halls, it’s likely that you will need to sign up to a lot of things and hand your personal details over to relevant bodies. Having your personal documents in one place will give you peace of mind and ensure that you have all of the necessary information, without having to phone home or get your personal documents sent through the post.

Kitchen Items

It’s surprising how much you miss a can opener when you don’t have one. When moving to university, make sure you take at least two of all pieces of crockery you plan to use; that way, if yours is dirty (or a house mate has sneakily taken one of your plates to their room) you’ll never be without.

In addition to plates and bowls, don’t forget simple items such as a knives, forks and spoons, as well as extras like a cheese grater, can opener and oven tray.

Sentimental Items

Of course, as well as all the practical items you must think about taking with you, the only way to make your new house feel like a home is to bring along items with you that make you feel comfortable. Whether it’s the blanket you always have on your bed, your collage of photos, or your stuffed toy collection, whatever helps you settle in easily is always worth taking with you. Moving to university is a lot less daunting with a few familiar belonging by your side.
