What you need to bring

The basics

Not sure where to start? Here are some basics you should bring with you:

Things for your room

Please check what size bed your room has. Many of our rooms have small double beds which are 4ft X 6ft 3inches.

Things for your ensuite or communal bathroom

Bring a supply to start with but afterwards it might be a good idea to share the cost with your flatmates by having a communal kitty for things that you all use. Alternatively you could buy online at Unibulkbuy.

Things for the kitchen

If you're an international student, we'll supply you with a free kitchen pack with all the kitchen basics. 

Money and documents
