Setting off to uni for the first time, or indeed for your second or third year, is exciting. Making new friends or catching up with old ones after a summer apart is one of the great joys of heading back to your university city.

What is less fun is the packing. Being away from home for weeks at a time makes for a long and arduous packing process – not something to look forward to at the end of your summer! So why not take the hassle out of moving and let us help you? With your lovely, luxurious student accommodation at Collegiate already lined up, set the tone for the year ahead by filling your new home with some lovely new things, thanks to the Collegiate lifestyle packs.

We’ve developed two handy lifestyle packs, designed to make things easier as you head for uni this autumn. They are particularly handy for those coming to the UK to study from overseas. Forget worrying about weight limits – just fill your suitcase with clothes, toiletries and personal effects and let us do the rest!

The full lifestyle pack (available for £650) includes a whopping 28 pieces of kit that should cover all your essential kitchen and bathroom needs. The set contains everything from a kettle to a toothbrush holder. For full details of the pack’s contents, check out our Extra Services page.

If you’ve happily arranged your kitchenware already, but could do with some everyday essentials like bedding, towels and cushions, then our 12 item lifestyle pack (available for £450) is the perfect solution. Many students go for this option to save them having to bring bulky items like duvets and pillows with them. Again, please see the Extra Services page for a full list of what’s included.

Setting off for uni should be a time of hope and enjoyment, not a stressful, life-size puzzle that involves you working out how to cram months’ worth of items into one or two woefully small suitcases. You’re starting a whole new phase of your life and deserve to do so surrounded by lovely new things. So sit back, relax and let us take care of the essentials for you. You’ll be really glad you did!

Lifestyle packs are available at all Collegiate properties. For more information, visit, email or call 01235 833 642.
