What "stuff" is it?

What sort of place are you moving into? Uni halls?

And how are you getting there?

Have you been allocated a room yet? If so, you might want to find out the answers to the following questions:
Is the wardrobe ceiling height?
Is there any space underneath the bed?

If you have space to store a big suitcase under your bed, e.g. :

Or on top of your wardrobe (for instance there's space on top of this wardrobe for a suitcase, but not this wardrobe).
Then take a suitcase / some hefty boxes.

If you won't have that space you might want to think about packing your clothes and things in bags that can fold up to store away, for instance, this little number. IKEA bags and the like are also foldable.

That's a nice room!

Looks like you've got a pull-out draw under the bed there. Get your suitcase and lie it flat next to your bed at home. If the height of the suitcase when flat is below the height of the base of the bed, you are probably safe.

Judging by that bookshelf I think your wardrobe may well be ceiling height so no space on top possibly.

If you pack using cardboard boxes (if available) rather than hard plastic boxes or other non-foldable items then you might be able to fold up the cardboard and stack them somewhere / put them in that drawer too.

I would suggest removing packaging at home as you don't want to fill your bin up on the first day with rubbish that could have been left.

Within reason. If you have a load of things in wrapping you might want to unwrap some of them. However, a duvet is going to be easier to transport if it stays wrapped. If you have saucepans that came in a box, use the box (just an example).
