What To Expect When Moving Into Student Halls

All your hard work has paid off and you are now about to begin an exciting new chapter in your life. As an undergraduate, this will likely be your very first time living away from home. There’s lots to consider when moving out and it can be a challenging time for some. Here are answers to some of the questions you probably have circling around your head.

What Will My Room Be Like?

Typically, halls of residence rooms come equipped with a single bed, desk, and some storage. The rooms can vary in size depending on your chosen student halls. You will likely have a communal bathroom or an en-suite, again depending on your choice of halls.

What Should You Bring With You?

You should firstly check what your student halls already comes with, that way you can make a list of what’s needed. Many student halls already come equipped with kettles, microwaves, irons etc… so you are likely to save money on needing to purchase any of those items. It’s worth bringing a few items that provide you with good memories so that you always have something to remind you of your loved ones. 

Your Flatmates

It can be daunting for some but with many halls of residence you don’t get to choose who you live with. The average halls of residence will be the home to a few hundred students so there will be lots of people around in the same situation as you are. You will soon get to know your flatmates and it might be helpful to suggest going out somewhere early on so that you can soon get to know each other.

Internet Access and TV

Most student halls will provide you with internet access, this is usually included in your weekly bill. You shouldn’t need worry about any unexpected bills. If there is anything you are unsure of then always check with your accommodation directly to find out.
