So, since its only a couple of weeks until the big move to University you’re probably sat staring at a pile of boxes, suitcases and bags taking up a substantial amount of space in your room wondering if its going to fit into your uni room let alone your car!!!
So this would be a great time to tell you – DON’T WORRY – pretty much every student moving away from home are in the same position. I was exactly the same when I first went to uni, I decided to take everything I could possibly pack from my room regardless of whether I used it or not because lets face it “its better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it”… right? This meant that I had to have a train journey with my sister and meet my parents and things down in Birmingham.
I can honestly say, it does not get much better over the years. I am currently in the process of packing for my 3rd move to Birmingham and even though I have already taken some boxes down to my new flat I still have quite a bit to take with me – hopefully there’s a bit of room for me in the car – I even left some of the “in-case” items out of my things to take this year!!!
However along with many other students in the same position, I found that the accommodation on campus at Aston University provided me with plenty of storage space. If you have not had a campus / accommodation tour, then here’s a quick summary of your storage:
- Wardrobe space
- Under bed storage
- Cupboard in your en suite
- Plenty of cupboards in the kitchen for everyone
- Storage above your desk.
All that’s left to say tonight is…
