    I was wondering what essentials people would suggest I bring to uni?
    Such as, Stationary, Kitchen utensils, stuff for my room ect.

    I just don't want to take things that I don't need. The less things, the better

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    you can beg or borrow most of what you need

    A printer is one people always suggest
    Basic kitchenware, though I can't imagine you'll need a kettle or a toaster as there may already be one/ someone else might bring one and if not you can all throw in money to buy one

    CONDOMS!!!! lots and lots of sex


    This is a very descriptive list, there'll be a lot on there you don't need (for example all the kitchen appliances!) but is good to look at to pick out the essentials.
