Durham, maybe UCL but i am leaning towards Durham now.
2 formals a term is more likely than twice a week in Durham and UCL don’t have formals (except once or twice a year as part of some clubs).
You won’t need multiple suits.

I prefer to wear clothes that I feel comfortable in. They are mostly jeans and T-shirts. Sometimes I read interesting blog articles and choose clothing options from there.

Some colleges at Durham have formals twice a week but other colleges only had them twice a year, so it really depends on your college. My college will be St Chad's and we have formals every Tuesday and Thursday

I wouldn't assume regular formals until much closer to the start of term given the covid situation personally (and even *if* OP is allocated a college running formals twice a week (and by some miracle there's no social distancing rules in place that prevent regular formals) no one will notice the same suit being worn under robes ).

Based on the experience of 2020 Durham freshers you might be lucky to get vegetables or hot food :eek3:

How much clothes should i take to university? I know thats a broad question so im a male, and plan to also go to lots of formal events.

I was thinking, 7 hoodies, 15 shirts, 5 jeans and 8 pairs of shoes. Maybe 3/4 suits?

Thanks in advance as i really have no clue how much i should bring.
Depends on how much you plan on going to the laundry if your going to be there quite a long time (like the whole year I'd say)

7-8 hoodies
10 t-shirts
5 Shirts
1 pair of trainers
1 pair of formal shoes
1 pair of day to day shoes (like trainers, hiking shoes etc.)
1 pair of flip-flops (for those shared bathrooms)
any socialist foot wear like ski boots or football boots(optional)
2-3 pairs of shorts (for the summer or weirdly warm weather)
Gym Gear
3-4 suits If your going to a lot of formal events (More than 3 a month)
1 suit if your going to fewer.
1 rain jacket
1 good warm jacket (i used ski jackets
1 pair of good gloves (Gore tex if you can afford it)
1 Beenie
10 pairs of warm socks (believe me in student houses you'll need them.)
I think the should do it (ski pants are good if it might snow)

But what about weekly or even biweekly formal events? Surely i wouldn't want to wear the same suits repeatedly.
Termley or yearly is more likely at uni hell a lot of the student clubs don't even require shoes or shirts one guy i knew often went clubbing in flip-flops.

Hi @blooperbloobs,

It sounds like you've made a good start. It's a tricky balance between having enough to avoid too many trips to the laundry room and having space to fit it all into your wardrobe. What you have listed sounds about right, but it depends on your personal preference: how often you like to wear things, how dirty they get etc. Don't forget the overlooked parts too, such as sportswear, bedding, and stuff to chill out in.

Remember your terms are usually 12 weeks long so you'll always have the option of picking up new clothes after your first semester - if you plan on going home for Christmas for example.
