The final category of items that don’t seem to fit anywhere else when discussing what to take to university, however this doesn’t mean they are any less important.
You will have a lot of free time at university and for just £5 a month you can get access to unlimited DVDs at LoveFilm.com. From fellow students, this is priceless. Your first 30 days are free through What2Take Click Here.
Something we would strongly recommend to all university students. We recommend the use of Endsleigh, as they specialise in student insurance. To Apply For Endsleigh Insurance Click Here.
Tesco Club Card
We recommend you sign up for a Tesco Club Card when going to university. Huge savings to be had, you can we suggest you convert your points to Airmiles and make that summer holiday considerably cheaper – Click Here to Sign Up for a Clubcard.
Strangely important, especially in the first few days in halls.
Very useful for course specific reading material, for example the Economist for business based degrees. We recommend MagazineSubscriptions.co.uk
Important in case of emergencies, we do not recommend you use one for day to day spending.
A Student Bank Account
If you take your bank account with Natwest you will also receive a free student railcard for the time you are at university, which will save you a small fortune throughout your time.
You would be surprised the amount of time you can save by cycling everywhere. If you do bring a bike to university we recommend you get insurance from Endsleigh and most definately a D-Lock as normal bike locks will not suffice and often it is required for the insurance to remain valid. You can buy a D-Lock from Amazon Here.
We recommend you invest in a Kindle, not only does it reduce your costs on books and saves lugging heavy text books around campus but it is also a life saver killing time in between lectures. We recommend the Kindle Touch as it the lightest and most user friendly, it is available in Wi-Fi only or the slightly more expensive 3G + Wi-Fi.
