In terms of number of clothes items and suitcases etc. Just wanting a few other people’s opinions otherwise I’ll be packing way too much!

I took just over a week's worth of clothing, plus a few particular items I thought might be needed (eg. if you play sport then pack sports stuff on top of that, or if you need formalwear then add that). I could manage a week and a half without washing, but that was all my clothes and honestly I couldn't have stored more than that in my uni room anyway! It filled a fair amount of my suitcase, but not the full thing

How often are you going to be visiting home? When I started I discovered pretty quickly that although I'd covered all bases for the fancy dress outfits I needed for each night of freshers week, I'd brought almost no actual clothes to wear! Luckily I was close enough to make a trip back at the weekend.

If you live quite close, I'd take maybe 2 weeks worth of outfits and see how you do with that. There should be washing facilities on site, and you can also go home and get another bag full if you find you need a lot more.

Thanks
I don’t think I’ll be going home until christmas

I mostly had the issue with drawer space tbh, but yes that's pretty likely
