Make Your University Halls Feel Good
Whether you’re moving to your first halls at university or helping someone prepare for the first big step out of the nest. Packing for university can be overwhelming. Especially if you’re making the effort to be eco-conscious, in between freshers’ fairs and pot noodles.
We’ve asked around Feel Good HQ, and here are some things the team wish they had taken to their first uni accommodation and found some options that’ll help you feel good about your first halls.
A bath mat
It might not seem essential, but whether you have a communal bathroom or you share one, a bath mat is essential. They help keep the bathroom just a little cleaner, and they can look pretty cute! Urban Outfitters is the ultimate option for a funky bathmat.
You’ll probably want to air out and freshen up your room as you move in. You might be tempted to get some plug-in air fresheners, but make sure you go for candles instead. Plugin refreshers not only use unnecessary electricity, but are often made with toxic materials that make them hard to recycle.
Okay, hear us out. We know the UK isn’t necessarily a year-round, flip-flop-wearing country but… If you’ve got communal showers, flip-flops are a must. You never know what germs are lurking on those communal shower floors…
A pack of toilet rolls!
(helps if it’s Feel Good)
In all the fuss and rush, sometimes the essentials get forgotten. But make sure you’ve packed some toilet rolls, so you don’t have to run to the shop as soon as you’ve moved in! You can also guarantee someone else will have forgotten so you can be there to lend a helping hand by sharing a roll. But, if everyone in your halls remembered this essential, you can rest assured that you’re stocked up for a while!
