Student Moves

Edinburgh University Student Accommodation

Making that first step to moving as a student can be terrifying and look like a giant mountain that you have to start climbing. Really though, it is the start of your whole life and you want to make that first step as stress-free and easy as possible. So, in order to start the climb and get there in one piece we are going to give you a few tips that we have learnt over our years of experience.

Obviously, you need a place to sleep so you need to make the right choice when it comes to student accommodation. We know that student accommodation is often cramped, and you aren’t allowed to make any changes to it so it’s important to check how much room you are going to have to bring along the things that you really need. Once you realize the amount of space you have is sufficient enough or not to hold all your belongings then you may want to consider buying organizers. As a former student, I can say that honestly small organizers were simply put one of the most affordable and life changing things I bought in my Uni years. These may be folders, Ikea storage bins or even something as small as pencil holders. This will stop your small space from overflowing with papers you’re never going to use again and pencils that no longer work and ultimately making you a more productive and hopefully successful student in the long run.

The next step that helped us during our Uni days was to label all of our belongings that were kept in shared areas like the kitchen or living room. Nobody wants to admit it, but we have all used a flatmate’s plate or cup and maybe left it in our room for months on end, but to save you the hassle of having to go out and buy your favourite kitchen appliances again you can easily buy labels and put your name on all of them. This is a sure way to prevent anything from going missing and for some reason, they do you can tell everyone that it has your name on it!

Now, if you have arrived on our page and you are coming to your final years as a student then don’t worry! It’s time to start packing, make sure you buy all the best packaging materials including boxes, bubble wrap and packing peanuts, this will save you any heartache so that something never gets lost or damaged. Once you have packed up and are ready to move out and into your new home it’s time to call in the professionals. Edinburgh Van Man offers student discounts and all you need to do is call us on
