Life as a university student has lots of excitement and enrichment to offer. But one of its big challenges is determining what to take with you. Remember that university life isn't much different from your normal life at home in that you are responsible for decorating and stocking your room. Here is an exhaustive university move-in checklist with several key categories of items to ensure that you don't forget anything you need.

Most universities provide some essentials, so it's a good idea to check what the school provides before you start shopping. So, what should you look for on a university checklist? Comfortable dorm bedding should be at the top of the list. Buy a few extra-long twin sheet sets. Another necessity in a res hall checklist is a mattress pad. Dorm mattresses tend to be hard, but a good mattress pad offers a layer of softness. You will also need a duvet and a duvet cover. Duvet covers allow you to change the look of your bedding without investing in a whole new comforter. Get some bed rest pillows so you can sit on your bed comfortably. And buy some decorative pillows to enhance your room's aesthetics.

Take advantage of Bed Bath & Beyond's university savings pass to shop for dorm room essentials at a discounted price. Since you will most likely share the bathroom, get a shower tote to carry your towel to the shower and dirty linens back to your room. Buy a shower caddy to organize your items neatly. You also need flip-flops, a bath towel, a pack of washcloths, and a robe. You can conveniently buy all these essentials in one platform at our university shop. You will also need laundry supplies like a broom, dustpan, and trash can to keep your dorm room tidy. Remember to buy a laundry basket, drying rack, ironing board, and iron, too.

Grab study essentials like pens, rulers, erasers, pencils, highlighters, staplers, notebooks, a diary, and file paper. Buy a laptop to make studying easier. You can also use it to watch your favourite shows in your free time. Remember to carry a portable hard drive to back up your school projects. Use décor to add style and personalization to your dorm room. Add some photos, posters, and wallpaper to perk up plain walls. A full-length mirror will improve your dorm's appearance and give it an illusion of space. Use rugs, a bean chair, and an ottoman to create extra sitting space in your dorm. Through our university pack & hold program, you can select items in your university dorm checklist and have them shipped to the nearest store near your institution.
