There are loads of these posts floating around the internet and with good reason. Everyone is different and what I may need, you may not, but with that said I just wanted to make a small list of fun extras. Obviously none of these are necessities, and some of them may even be provided for you, so if you know where you’re going to be staying you can check this in advance. If you have anything you want to add that I’ve missed out, please leave it in the comments as I want this to be more of a discussion post than a simple list.
For your bedroom
Door Stop – For making friends
Shoe Rack – If you have enough space it looks tidier
Clothing Rail – Uni wardrobes can be pretty small
Plug Extension – Why are the sockets never where you need them?
Full-length Mirror – Useful if there’s not one provided
Desk Lamp – These are sometimes provided, but I brought my own
Tool Kit – Works wonders when your wardrobe door falls off
Laundry Bag – Personal preference, some people are fine carrying their whole laundry basket to the laundry room, some aren’t
For the kitchen
Slow Cooker – Makes meals 10x more amazing as your meal can cook whilst you’re studying
Toastie Machine – Guaranteed friend maker
Bottle Opener – Even if you don’t need it, someone else will!
For the bathroom
Bathroom Organiser – Something to hold all your products in will change your life. I used a MALM box from IKEA.
Toothbrush Holder – I picked one up from Tiger just to make things tidier.
Okay, that’s pretty much it for extra things I can think of, but like I said, please comment if you have anything else you want to add to the list, or you have any suggestions/questions for future uni posts.
