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.

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.
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
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.
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.
I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
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.
