Hi guys, for today’s blog I wanted to talk about stuff, more particularly what stuff I find is essential for university living, this list won’t include things like clothes or pans because I shouldn’t need to tell you why they are important.
- Head/earphones: An easy thing to forget but if you listen to music at all or a lot like me then these are an absolute must. Useful for studying, exercising or just relaxing, I don’t know where I’d be without them personally. If you’re looking for the best listening experience I suggest a pair of decent bluetooth headphones, you don’t have to break the bank but I would suggest spending at least £40. Alternatively £10 earphones are great as well!
- Laptop/tablet with keyboard: The university does have loads of computing spaces throughout campus so I wouldn’t class it as an essential, but a good computer is useful for doing work without having to leave your room, or cracking on Netflix in the evening, you could also use a HDMI cable to connect it to your rooms TV (if you have one), perfect for late night bingeing.
- A USB/SD Card: Obvious, but again easily forgettable, saving your work on a computer is alright but to be extra safe you want to make sure you back-up all uni work on a USB. depending on what course you study might affect what size you need, For just basic essays and coursework a 4 or 8gb size is more than enough but if you study something that requires using advanced software or videos/pictures etc then a 16 or 32gb might be more suitable. Specifically for media related courses people like myself, when you rent camera equipment out they don’t give you an SD card so getting your own one is definitely important for these types of courses.
So there’s just a few things I would definitely recommend having if you haven’t thought of them already. Till next time!
