Heading back to uni can be stressful for returning students, as well as for freshers leaving home for the first time. Check out our tips for saving money on back to uni essentials, and discover answers to some frequently asked questions.

Work out what to take

Working out what to take to university can be challenging. It’s like trying to pack two weeks’ worth of holiday clothes into a 15kg suitcase, but instead, you’re trying to pack your life up into the back of your mum’s car.

It’s easy to forget that you aren’t going forever, and there will be shops near your new digs if you need anything later! Check out our guide to discover what to take and what to leave behind.

Grab cheap uni room essentials

When you’re not at the library, you might end up spending a fair bit of time in your room at uni. While it’ll probably already come furnished with the essentials, there are plenty of budget-friendly ways to make it feel a little more like your own.

Take a look at our guide to decorating your room on a budget and get it looking Insta-worthy in no time.

Find cheap kitchen items by sharing

You don’t want to be that flat full of freshers who have no counter space because there are five toasters and three kettles. Find your flatmates on social media before you head off to uni, and work out what you each should bring.

Alternatively, agree to wait until you get there and go shopping together. Chipping in can make items more affordable, and might even mean you can budget for higher quality stuff.

Don’t be tempted to buy gadgets you’ll rarely use. We’ve whittled down the best student kitchen gadgets for you, so check to see if what you have in mind has made the list!

Shop your reading list for less

Oh, books, books, and more books. Suggested reading lists can be long depending on your course, and it’s not always possible to get what you need from the library.

Luckily, there are selected booksellers that offer generous discounts to students. Find out how to save up to 50% off required university textbooks, and keep a bit more cash for the pub.
