Starting a New Life at University: Let’s Get Organised!

It’s that time of year again! Summer is coming to an end and Autumn is slowly creeping up on us. September is a month that many kids will dread as it’s getting closer to a new school year. For the students who have finished school however, will have an exciting new start to look forward to – heading off to university. This is a time for lots of fun, but also for a lot of hard work and studying. Therefore, students need the perfect work space to get stuck in when it comes to studying.

Firstly, it’s a good idea to organise everything at home. During the summer and half terms – you’re likely to head back to your parents’ house and spare time will often be spent revising for exams and writing essays for assignments – meaning that you’ll need a nice clean space to work at.

It’s worth get clearing out the old school work that you no longer need – this will have collected up over time and half of it you’ll never use again. There are some things however that you might need, so just be sure to organise the paperwork that you will and either store it in the loft so you can look back on it in years to come or make sure you have a good desk space to keep them neatly stored away.

Having a good desk space set up at home is great so that you’ll be able to fit things like your laptop, books and revisions. If you’re desk space isn’t that big then consider a shelving or bookcase system that you can keep adding too – you’re bound to get more and more books over the next few years, so make sure you have the space to store them.


Once you get to university, you will need to make sure you have enough space for all your things – which you are bound to have a lot more than you think! Bedrooms in university halls tend not to be the largest of rooms, but you can optimise this space easily with a little help…

Although your room in halls will often have large desks, it might also be useful to having another storage solution to ensure organisation. Free standing units are ideal for university accommodation as you don’t have to drill anything into the walls (which isn’t allowed in student halls anyway).

Shelfstore units are perfect for university students, particularly because you can add to them whenever necessary. This is ideal for when you move out of halls and into a student house, where you are likely to have more space and when the pile of work starts to increase.

Be sure to consider some of our suggestions, they will help you out in the long run…

Best of luck on your new adventure at university!
