To prepare yourself for student accommodation, you should think of all the things that are done for you while you live at home, such as cooking, cleaning, washing, etc. These are all things you’re going to have to do for yourself now, so the best way to prepare for life at university is to get some practise in beforehand.
Our top tips are:
- learn to cook!
- take necessities only
- get to know your flatmates
It’s a good idea to be open minded when preparing to move into student accommodation, and make an effort to get to know your flatmates, as you’ll be living with these people for the next year. Remember – you’re all in the same position, and even if you’re feeling shy, it’s important to introduce yourself and make the effort to get to know your flatmates.
