What should I bring with me?

The items that are provided in the kitchen can be seen under the 'What is provided?' page. It is important to note that the items in the list below are not provided in the kitchen areas, and so you must provide them if you require them.

As kitchens are shared between several people, it is advisable not to bring a toaster or kettle with you initially, but to purchase them jointly with your new flatmates, once you have moved in. Also, please note that electrical kitchen appliances are not allowed to be used in the rooms.

Items to bring with you:

  • Cutlery
  • Plates
  • Pots and pans
  • Bedding
  • Pillow
  • Computer

Items to, possibly, purchase after arrival:

  • Kettle
  • Toaster

This list is by no means exhaustive- there are obviously many other things that you will bring with you. However, it is a start to what you will need in halls. Please note that a computer is not compulsory, but will help enormously with your work, and for receiving information from the University. Some Halls of Residence do provide computer work areas, and there are numerous computer rooms on the University campus.

Finally, on Arrivals Weekend we ask that you bring with you:

  • Your fast track check-in letter/parking permit. This will be e-mailed to you in mid-September.
  • Formal photo identification- for example, a passport or driving licence. This is needed for you to collect your key
