Moving Into Student Halls

Welcome Back Boo,

Is it the weekend yet? It’s not is it.. sigh.

If you are getting ready to go to university, you are probably feeling incredibly excited. Most people say that university is the best time of their lives. However, there is no denying that it is a period with a lot of change too. After all, you are likely to be living on your own for the very first time. Plus, the set-up of student accommodation will be different from anything that you are used to.

Pack light – There is only one place to begin, and this is with packing light. Over packing is undoubtedly one of the biggest mistakes that freshers make when going to university. If you don’t want to leave stuff at home, you could always look into the option of storing it locally. You can find information on this type of service at’t underestimate the small amount of space you are going to have available to you in your student halls. You will have a bedroom and a small en-suite, and everything else will be communal. You will probably only end up with one shelf in the fridge and one cupboard in the kitchen, so don’t bring all of your fancy cooking equipment! Not only this, but you are only going to collect more and more things as your time at university progresses, so you need to keep this in mind too.

Try to touch base with your future flatmates – Thanks to the Internet; it is easier to find people than ever before. This is especially the case when a lot of universities  have set up Facebook groups and such like so that people can connect with one and other. It is a good idea to do a bit of digging online to see if you can chat with a few people beforehand. It is not a necessity, but it will make you feel a bit more comfortable about the whole process. Plus, you can decide who is going to bring what in terms of pots, pans, and all of those other things whereby you really don’t need one per person.

Organise your bills – Last but not least, you need to understand what bills you are going to need to pay and what bills are going to be covered by your contract. When it comes to halls, you will find that electricity, gas, and Internet are usually provided, although, you should double-check to make sure. This does not mean that you don’t have any bills to pay, though, as you will need to pay for a TV license. You can register your details here: You may also be responsible for council tax and other bills too, so the best thing to do is find out beforehand.

As you can see, there is a lot to take into account when moving into student halls. While this experience is going to be different from the norm, it is one you are bound to thoroughly enjoy. However, it is always a good idea to know what to expect so that you can be ready.

Remember to keep on slaying,

See you next time xoxo
