Before we tell you about all the bedding and bathroom essentials, there are some everyday essentials which are a necessity whilst at University:
- Form of ID (Passport/Driving Licence)
- University acceptance letter
- Accommodation information
- Insurance documents
- Student loan information
The above items will help you get through University problem-free. Having all your documents on hand is useful if you need to provide information to your accommodation provider or the University.
Ensure you have all the items listed above that you need for study, from a laptop to books, to help you finish your University course with the best grades possible.
During your time at University, you will likely spend most of your time in your accommodation. Your University house or flat is where you will be sleeping and relaxing, so ensuring that you make your room as comfortable as possible is vital to give you the best experience. Here is our checklist of bedding essentials that everyone should have when moving back to University:
- Bed linen
- Mattress protector
When returning to University, ensure you take two sets of bed linen. Taking two sets of bed linen allows you to alternate whilst one set is being washed. A duvet with a 10.5 TOG rating is ideal as this will keep you cosy and comfortable during the academic year.
If you want to spruce up your room, Linen Connect has several duvet covers to add style and sophistication. Universities will often provide you with a fully furnished bedroom. However, they won’t provide the same level of comfort as bed linen from Linen Connect.
A set of high-quality pillows that will provide a comfortable night’s sleep and are durable enough to last the whole year are a must. Soft pillows will make your room cosy and keep you well-rested. Finish off your bedding set with premium bed sheets to create the perfect environment for resting and studying.
Taking a mattress protector to University will keep your mattress fresh and clean. A blanket and cushions are also necessary to keep you warm during winter and comfortable throughout the year. Linen Connect stocks a wide range of cushion covers and bed runners to make your room more personable.
You’ll need some bathroom essentials when moving back to University. Taking care of your hygiene will help you become more relaxed and enhance your ability to study efficiently. Read our checklist of bathroom essentials that you will need when returning to University:
- Bath mats
- Laundry bin
Ensuring you have plenty of toiletries is essential at University to keep your health in good condition. Items such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, shower gel and skin care products are just some items you will need. How many and which items you take back to University depends on what you need and your preferences.
Most universities won’t provide a laundry bin when you arrive. Laundry bins are incredibly useful for transporting dirty washing to the washing machine. University accommodation often has a separate laundry room, so a laundry bin will save you much time and effort.
Similar to bed linen, it is highly recommended to take at least two sets of towels, hand towels and flannels when returning to University to ensure you have spares. A soft, luxurious towel set is pivotal in keeping yourself cosy and comfortable. Linen Connect stocks various high-quality towels to keep you dry and snug.
Bath mats are also a pivotal item you should consider when returning to University. Bath mats are likely not provided, so taking your own is a good idea. Add a premium bath mat from Linen Connect to create a sense of luxury in your accommodation and keep your bathroom floor dry, especially if you share with others.
When returning to University, ensure that you take your bathrobe with you. Universities are unlikely to provide one, and they are fantastic for keeping comfortable. Linen Connect stocks luxurious and durable bathrobes to help give you the best University experience. Bathrobes are perfect for relaxing after a shower and keep you dry and warm.
