    I'm the same.. if worse - for my first trip of the year we borrow Uncle's people carrier - so all back of the car collapsed & boot & perhaps topbox. The my parents visit in 2nd week or so with any other "essentials".. then take a few things home in 7th week or so..ahem.
    Hehe, we actually took 2 cars for my first trip to uni, but that was mainly cos a)both my parents and my sister wanted to come, and b)the second car only had my cello and my bike in its back.

    I liked student spotting on the motorway/A14 as well - once you got on the A14 every so often we'd pass/be passed by another car packed full of stuff with a student + parent in it, and I'd be like "I know where you're going! " Twas really weird, actually - towards Cambridge it got really really busy (unsurprisingly), and we ended up following this one car for ages, and ended up following them right to Mem Court (where I lived) and turns out the guy had actually come from Wolverhampton (not far from where I live) Bizarre.

    Wear binbag. If you want something tight fitting, just wrap cellotape around it. Sorted.

    Realistically, I think I'm going to take a gigantic suitcase and then several boxes. I'll only need to transport it back home (5 hours away) for the summer vacation, so luckilly I won't have to load it all onto the train.

    Knowing what I'm like, I'd have to book an entire carriage for it all!

    The car was completely jam packed when I moved down last September I ended up sitting on my duvet and towels etc. Luckily at Cardiff they don't make you move your stuff out at Christmas and Easter If you're going getting drove down I would say don't worry too much about suitcases, lots of things can go in black bags and it saves on room.

    I can't believe we fit everything in when I moved out in June cause I'd bought so much new stuff while I was there!

    Erm, I've started packing my stuff for Uni.

    And, I've only packed a quarter of my clothes and it's already filled up a medium sized suitcase (mum is being a pain and is saying that the big suitcase won't fit in the boot) :mad: ! My shoes, books, towels etc. haven't even gone in yet! :eek:

    Anyone else having this problem?! :confused:

    If you're a student living away from home, how much stuff did you bring on your first trip to the University!

    What else should I bring? Please remind me!
    Oh I know how it feels like (well sort of), I'm only allowed to bring 20kg on the airplane, I can't take all the stuff I wanted to, not even half of it

    when transporting your books remember what the removal men always say... "never fill the box more than 2/3 full"... or youll break your back! also i have borrowed a sack-truck for moving in, meaning i can carry most of my stuff from the car in one go (as theres no parking).

    doesn't that depend on the size of the box..?

    quite simply the answer is to take more than one suitcase. i'm sure u can manage 2 even on the train or something, but then again i know ur not the bigest girls. u could start butching urself up right now to get ready to carry all ur stuff. lol

    anyway i'm gettign my mate to drive me there so i can take loadsa stuff and we can have a night out cos he is taking a gap year.
    my mum offered to drinve but her driving is crap and i don't think she would be able to handle central london, so quite frankly i don't wanna risk my life!

    You can have one full suitcase. Your parents can help you bring some stuff along too.

    I thought there won't be places in accomodation if you apply during clearing.
