Whether you’re just about to start uni for the first time or a returning student, there is now just a few months before uni starts. The weather is warm and summer is now in full swing. You should make the most of this time before things get a lot busier. Here are a few things you should consider in the weeks leading up to the start of uni.
You Should Travel
Whether you like having an adventure or a relaxing holiday, you should get away and make the most of all this availability you have. De-stress and take a break, that way you can start uni with a fresher mindset as opposed to spending the weeks leading up to uni feeling quite stressed.
Once the first semester begins you will have lots to keep you busy, so enjoy the fact that you have free time and can sleep in during the morning. Read a book, paint, watch the TV, go for a walk, whatever you enjoy doing, make time for it.
Spend Time With Friends & Family
Cherish spending some quality time with both your friends and family. Depending on how far you’re travelling for university, you will probably be seeing less of them. It’s normal for homesickness to kick in once you start uni but you will soon get familiar with your new surroundings. It’s worth keeping photos of loved ones and have mementos that provide good memories.
Get Tasks Complete
If you have a to do list then this would be an appropriate time to get it complete. Make sure you are well prepared for uni so that the nearer it gets the less worry you have. Check that all forms have been completed and finance sorted, books, pens and other accessories have all been purchased.
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
