Now that many of you have booked your accommodation at DMU, it’s time to get excited and think about moving into your room! 😁 We often get questions about what to bring to the halls of residence, so here’s our list of tips: 👕 Your clothes... Quite obviously, but please remember that the weather here is likely to be different to what you’re used to at home, and it changes often! So the tip here is to prepare for sun, rain, hail, wind, and snow (if you’re coming for the January intake).
🛁 Toiletries for the first couple of days. Yes, we do have shops in Leicester, but you may arrive at night and halls aren’t hotels, so it’s worth having some toothpaste and shower gel with you.
🛏 Bedding and towels. Even very simple ones will do, you need something to sleep on during your first night here.
📷 Photos of your friends and family...or anything that will make your room feel more like home!
That’s it! ☺️ The rest you can buy in Leicester on your first day. You will definitely need the following: 🍽 Kitchen utensils, cutlery and crockery. All of our halls are self-catered, meaning that you will need to cook your own food. But don’t worry, we have many shops in town. 🧽 Cleaning products - you will have to look after your kitchen and also your toilet, if you picked an en-suite room. Vacuum cleaners are provided in most halls (but please do check).
🛏 Bedding and towels to change.
All of those three might be quite tricky to bring in your luggage. Besides, once you’re here, you’ll be able to arrange to buy some of those items together with your flat-mates! 🙌
So...happy packing to those of you coming in a couple of months! 😃 If you’re starting with us in September - make sure to save this post for the future! 👍
