I used my pc for schoolwork, games, netflix and everything but should I bring it to university? I have a switch and I'll probably get a ps5 but I'm not sure about bringing those with me. I don't plan on using it over socialising or anything though.

Will you be taking a laptop?

The main reason to take it if it isnt too big is bigger screen, more power, can play games.
Occasionally you might like that power for your course if it is powerful or you can use pcs at uni.
Just think what extra you might get or leave it till term 2?

If you have it, you may as well bring it. You see people say they don't bring a console or gaming PC because they "don't want the distraction", but in my experience, the people who would let themselves be distracted to the point that it interferes with their studies or social life, will always find a way of distracting themselves no matter what they leave behind.

Why would just bring the top of the desk and not the full desk? :confused:

Do you think I would have much time for anything like watching movies/series or playing games or will I be too swamped with work?

Uni isn't some nightmarish hellscape where you have to forgo any form of entertainment in order to get your work done.

If you're doing it "properly" it won't be different to pre-uni education or working, for the most part you should be looking at evenings and weekends free, although it does depend somewhat on which course you're doing and how much work you need to put in generally, as in there are those for whom things just click and others that need to put in a lot of effort at home to understand things thoroughly.

We were always told 8 hours a day of study, 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of whatever you want to do (although things like eating will be in that 8 hours)

If you're happy with having a PC in your room then why not. My husband took his with us, and we had lots of great fun with it that we wouldn't have had with our laptops or the uni PC's. Yeah it took up a bit of space in the car and under the desk but it was worth it for us.

I did yes.

Provided you manage your time well - you should have a good amount of time to yourself. (though possibly narrowing towards exam time)
