College is the time when most people move out of the family home and start living independently in another city. Often this is a move to the other end of the country, or sometimes even to another country. It is, of course, extremely important to choose the right company – if you are looking for a good company to help you with your move, give us a call. First, however, you need to know what to take with you in general, so that you certainly won’t be missing anything in your new place.

Moving to university

With such an important life change as moving from the family home to university, it’s best to make a list of things to take in advance. That way, you can be sure that nothing will be left out. It is best to divide such a list into subcategories and organise them according to purpose – things for the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. What the student should remember when doing this is not to take the worst quality cups or old bedding with them. It’s best to choose your favourite items and take along decorations – in short, anything that will make your student flat feel cosy and like a family home.

List of things to bring


If you’ve been living with your parents, it can be difficult to pack all the things you’ll need for your new home. Cutlery, plates and cups, all kinds of bowls, pans and pots are a matter of course. However, many people forget about the chopping board, electric kettle or various cloths and sponges. Also not to be overlooked are any essential cleaning products such as washing-up liquid, sink, cooker or cupboard cleaner. Soaked wipes are indispensable for quick clean-ups.


Bathroom equipment is also important when moving to a university. As well as towels, toiletries, cotton wools and toilet paper, don’t forget cleaning products and a small mirror. It is also a good idea to have a few baskets or boxes with you to keep the bathroom tidy and to better store cosmetics or medicines in the medicine cabinet. In the new bathroom, the student can also keep a scale, a thermometer, as well as cleaning products and a bucket and mop.


The most important room in the new flat is the bedroom, which is usually also used as a guest room. A student’s bedroom should allow you to study, relax and at the same time be cosy and make you simply feel good in this place. On the one hand, therefore, you need to keep in mind all the elements that are necessary or that increase the functionality of the room; on the other hand, you should pay just as much attention to decorative issues – take along curtains, decorative cushions, a bedspread or decorative lamps.

Bed linen is, of course, essential in the bedroom. It is a good idea to take your favourite bedding with you or even buy new bedding especially for the move. A blanket is an essential piece of bedroom furniture that is often forgotten. A blanket is ideal for chilly evenings. Your bedroom is also likely to be the place where your wardrobe will be, so remember to take all the necessary wardrobe items and hangers with you when you move.

Essential furnishings after a move

However, moving from the family home to university requires not only taking things specific to the room, but also all the items you use on a daily basis without even realising how important they are. The basics are, of course, your laptop, phone or tablet, headphones and also all chargers. A bedside lamp is also essential for studying or reading a book in the evening.

For everyday items, an ironing board and iron are also a must, as well as at least one umbrella. The little things that are often necessary in life are also forgotten, such as a basic first aid kit, needles and threads, a hoover, broom and dustpan.
