    What is everyone taking to their accomodation? (Both for living and studying... and well in general)

    hmm PC, maybe a tv haven't decided about that yet, soft toys, hair dryer and my millions of hair brushes! I will porbably forget seomthing obvious liek a toothbrush or night clothes! Not bringin a hifi as I can just use my pc. Don't own much make up so will probably buy some new essensials of the things i actually use, mascara, eyeshadow, lipbalm, eye pencil. Studywise I will just bring the really obvious stuff like pens, 1 folder and a notepad of somekind then see what else I need and get it when I find out. My posters and photos for the wall, err I guess ill need all sorts I should really make a list.. Im so dissorganised I have to go to Wales tommorow and I Havn't even packed yet, i bet it will be the same on the night before uni!

    Dont bring too much stuff up, I can guarantee that when you pack up to go home at the end of the year you can't fit it all back in the car because you've accumulated things during the year, and you'll realise just how much rubbish you brought in September and never used once

    So much too organise! Since I'm self-catered, I'm trying to convince my parents that they really want to drive me there because I don't want to be lugging pots and pans around on the train.

    I'll wait until I get there to buy stationary.

    Kirst86 - you'll be given a chair! when you get your accommodation contract they'll have a list of stuff in the room and what you need to bring.
