Have your say: The unknown essentials to pack for uniWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
you don't need everything on your first night in your accommodation. you need towels, bed sheets, hand soap, basic hygiene stuff. i would say do not buy/bring too much stuff till you see your room and what you actually need. i had a flatmate last year bring everything but the kitchen sink and most of it was stacked in her room or placed in a drawer unused.
on the subject of air fresher, please be mindful how/where you use it. for two years i had to live with flatmates who bathed themselves and the flat with it. it wasn't pleasant but the person spraying is often immune to the smell. i would say less is more
