    Hi,

    I suffer with awful back pain & find it hard to carry a backpack with books, files & a laptop.

    I am going to be studying law at uni starting in spetmeber. So lots of heavy books! 😢😢😢

    I have seen some wheeled laptop bags/cases online that have room for everything including laptop books files & more.

    Do many students at uni use bags with wheels? Will I look ridiculous on campus if i use a wheeled case instead of a backpack?

    Thanks

    As someone who has a spine condition I shared your reservations when I first started uni, I went to UEL. I used a wheelable briefcase type thing, and a lot of others used normal suitcases, it makes life so much easier. Hope that helps.

    Hi Becka! Thanks so much for your reply! That puts my mind at ease and makes me feel better about using a case instead of a backpack!
