Hi there,

Congrats on starting university - how exciting!

I would say if you're commuting you don't want to over pack your bag and have to carry it around everywhere - especially if you want to do something social after the lectures/ activities. I like wearing a backpack to uni but a big enough handbag will work well enough as well!

My list of things considering your a fresher in 2021 would be:

. hand sanitiser
. your student ID for getting into places and getting student discount
. a notebook/diary (could be a specific app on your phone) for key dates, important info and lecture notes
. basic stationary & or note taking stationary (or specialised if your course requires .e.g. tape measure, steel rule, calculator etc.)
. a snack
. water bottle & or reusable mug/thermos
. phone charger
. purse
. phone

* some people like note taking with their laptop - you probably don't need your it for the first few sessions unless they are proper lectures

In terms of recommendations any durable shoulder bag, tote bag or backpack would work well. I'm sure you can find loads on asos or accessorise.

All the best on the start of your uni career!
