Back To Uni Essentials

Scored the grades and are officially ready to take the next step to freedom minus all the *actual* adulting involved? Or are you heading back to uni after months of wholesome home cooked dinners and free rent? Whilst you’re probs skipping across the threshold of your new home with a cheap fizz in hand, we’re probs right in thinking those uni essentials are totally not on your agenda. From that all important laptop to do all your work on (and binge Netflix), to essential back to uni supplies, we’ve put together the ultimate back to uni shopping list to help you settle in n’ give you more time to drink it up with your new roomies. We hope you’re stocked up on alka-seltzer, doll, coz we predict there’s gonna be a few sore heads around here! 


Nothin’ beats starting a new term than with a fresh set of back to uni homeware to help you feel settled. Your home away from home wouldn’t be complete without those homeware essentials you’ve seen your fam use, but don’t know WTF they’re for. Grab some kitchen essentials or shop back to uni bedding to help you feel extra cozy when you Netflix n’ chill with your third - oops we mean 4th - new bae. You’ll defo wanna add a brand new cutlery set, tea towels (x10000), pots and pans and of course some basic plates and bowls. For some extra fun additions, we recommend buying a quirky set of mugs to use as a convo starter as you introduce yourself to the new squad! From bathroom and kitchen, to lounge and bedroom, you’re gonna need to stock up on allllll those staples, babe. Don’t forget to add some of your fave accessories to your room with fairy lights and candles for the ultimate self-care package that’ll help you relax when deadlines hit. 


Whilst uni lectures may be on hold - thanks, covid - that doesn’t mean stationary shouldn’t be on your back to uni shopping list! Grab some colourful highlighters to make your notes seem x10 more interesting than they actually are, and be sure to add some staple black ink as well as boujee notebooks to help you get excited for that online lecture. You can’t beat a post-it, babe, use it for marking out those all important pages, or claim your milk in the fridge! 


Want a few killer ‘fits to have you nailing that first term back? With back to uni fashion keeping your style trending from the min you step foot on campus to the moment you step out of the club, we’re about to give you some serious outfit inspo to make your back to uni experience one to remember. We love loungewear for those cold morns when you just can’t get out of bed, or a lounge jumpsuit for an easy option when you CBA planning a ‘fit. Wanting to make a first impression they’ll never forget? Make your name known by completing that #OOTD by adding a staple coat (we love teddy or a waterfall coat) or grab a layer turtleneck jumper under a puffer jacket for an ultra influencer style. With tons of back to uni clothes to choose from, you’re gonna wanna check out our ‘New In’ for next level inspo. 


Your food care package will only last so long, girl, and although you’ll probs already be on first name terms with the Deliveroo man, your student loan defo won’t cover alllll those late night Dominos. Fill your cupboards with industrial sized packets of pasta, and be sure to always keep a meal (or five) in the freezer for the morning after the night before. Hosting pres and need a few nibbles? Slip to your nearest Tesco Express for endless snacks and share packets of crisp and chocolate! Staying in on a Saturday? If you’ve got a Netflix and chill date planned with your girl squad then you’ll wanna make sure you’re all stocked up on ice-cream and Cadbury’s for those cosy nights under the blankets.
