    Hi,

    I hope I've posted this in the right thread.

    I've been tasked with writing a few guides to help new students plan their move to uni and to help them know what to expect on move in day/following couple of days.

    I've covered things like leaving your door open while unpacking as you'll meet your hall mates so much quicker and about packing as much in advance as possible.

    I've based most of it on personal experience from being a former student and helping people move but if anyone has any advice they'd like to share or run into any nightmares on move in day I'd be really grateful to read it (what I've got so far http://www.removalscompany.co.uk/Students/).

    Thanks

    instead of lots of different kitchen trays/pots for specialised uses, take an all purpose large deep roasting tray - that way you can cook chips, meats, pizza, lasagna, pasta bake etc just in that one dish.

    also if you are being taken down by car make sure you have identified a car park near to where your accommodation is - my uni is in london and when I got taken down we couldn't immediately find a car park so we had to randomly park on the corner and run with my stuff to my room - it was more than a little panicky so a bit of foresight would solve that problem.
