Packing for college can be a nightmare so I have compiled a list of most of the obvious and not so obvious things that you must remember when packing for the big move. List is not rated by the most important pieces needed but just a general list of everything not to forget!

  1. Alarm clock/phone alarm:
    • Very important for those early morning lectures!
  2. Favourites books
  3. Alcoholic drinks (any need to explain?)
  4. Toothbrush/Toothpaste/ Mouthwash /Floss
  5. Balls:
    • Basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, baseballs, tennis balls whatever sport you play it is a great ice breaker and common interest to have to make friends.
  6. First aid box
    • Icy Hot Patches or Thermal Patches for aches
    • For sprains and cuts, you never know what situation you will find yourself in!!
  7. Batteries,
  • especially AA for remotes etc
  1. Breakfast Cereals
  2. Bicycle, helmet, LOCK
    • Depending how far away you live from college you might invest in a bike to travel to and from college, if that is the case a helmet and lock would be essential to have

  3. Hangers
  4. Bleach
  5. Swim goggles/togs/ hat
    • If a swimming pool is your interest or close to where you live.
  6. Board games (Monopoly, a chess or checkers set etc)
  7. Moisturiser
  8. Folding chairs — any easy, folding chair that you can quickly prop open for guests or house parties are very useful
  9. Calculator or graphing calculator
  10. Teabags
  11. Camera
    • At least a disposable one to capture all those crazy, amazing memories you’re about to make

  13. Cds /Dvds
    • Depending on how sound your landlord is, you might have sky or UPC or then again you could have RTE, TV3 and TG4 (or in my case not have a TV). DVD’s are always good to have to pass time before bed or are always a good chat up line when needs be.
