Whether you’re just starting out with your university journey or it’s the beginning of the end as a final year (relatable), there’s always something that you’ll forget to bring to your uni room!
Everyone will recommend buying fake plants but I’m going to change it up a little and say that you should opt for the real thing! Nothing beats the smell and equally, having a few dotted around will make you feel better – I can almost guarantee it.
Top Tip: If you’re aiming for that boujee-looking room, Dried Pampas grass is the way to go!
I 100% recommend investing in a good desk lamp or ring light for those late night study sessions. Burst of energy at 1am? Perfect, you may as well put it to good use but throwing on the blaring big light is not the one. Perhaps opt for a lamp with a dimming bulb or a range of settings so that it can be used for alternate purposes! These lovely lights can also become your besties in the winter months when you need to pop on makeup for a night out!
Cliche? Perhaps. But I can’t tell you how much it helps when you’re feeling down or just a little home sick. Whether it’s rolling over and seeing your pet in a picture on your desk or a framed family pic – you’ll find more comfort in them than you originally realise!
A Book End
It’s uni we are talking about and even if you’re not getting lumbered up with books for studying, you should read to keep your brain on the go! I guarantee you’ll end up with a few and having a cute book end will make them look more organised and useful rather than having a pile thrown on the ‘chair of doom’.
A Colour Theme
Important to some, not all. Have a colour theme in mind before buying all your accessories – neutrals and Earth-tones are a massive hit at the moment and we can understand why. I think your uni room should be a peaceful space to try and attempt to escape the stresses of uni so maybe opt for calming colours and features.
The most important thing of all is to just enjoy yourself! Yes, it is nice to have a safe and comfortable space at uni but equally, you’ll probably spend most of your time in the library or at the pub so it’s not the be all and end all!
