Id go with the backpack, capable of holding a laptop, charger, a few pukka pads, your jacket, and a packed lunch all at the same time.

I often like to stop at the supermarket and stuff when walking back from uni just to save time, which means a nice big (and strong) bad with shoulder padding helps.

Yes ! Those are all positive things too! Actually when it rains as well probably its easier to have hands free and manage an umbrella better. And most totes bags dont have zippers ... hmmmm desicions !! Thank you for your answer xx

I’d go with a back pack. You need a decent sized one like mnot said. It needs to fit laptop, notebook, maybe a text book or two (which are massive and weigh and absolute ton). Water bottle, coffee flask, sandwich box, purse, pencil case.
I have a massive laptop backpack with iPad storage part, you can get really stylish ones off amazon. You’ll destroy your shoulder within a week with a tote bag, trust me.

if you’re planning on carrying heavy items, then deffo not a tote bag - your shoulder will hurt. As for text books, you don’t typically take them to lectures unless you are planning on going to library after class. I used both in my first year - a cheap backpack then I changed to a cheap tote back when i wasn’t carrying a lot around with me
