There’s a lot to think about when moving to university for the first time. Will you enjoy your course? Will you get on with your flatmates? Will you make any friends? Will you set your halls’ kitchen on fire? Will your creepy tutor make a move on you? So many questions.

There is one question that can be answered before you arrive…

And that is: what to pack for university?
