The Top 5 Essentials Everyone Needs at University


Essentials You Need At University

Going to university is a big step in a young adult’s life. It can get hectic and confusing to the point where you don’t even know what you have and what you need to pack. We have curated a list of the top five essentials that everyone needs during their time at university; whether it’s your first year or your fifth year. 


Although it may seem silly to remind people to bring scissors, you’d be surprised how often they are overlooked and then needed greatly. Scissors are a multi purpose tool. Need to cut a tag off something? Scissors. Need to cut a pizza and you didn’t bring a pizza cutter? Scissors. Need to give yourself a haircut? Scissors.

Travel-Sized Umbrella

Unless you go to school in the desert (some people do) you should bring an umbrella with you. You may think you will never need to use one but your mind will change during the first rainstorm and you risk getting soaked on your way to chemistry. 


A good quality keyboard can make all the difference when you start writing papers and complete homework assignments. Don’t go all out and get a huge keyboard that is going to take up all the space on your university issued desk, get a Penclic Mini Keyboard. The Penclic Mini Keyboard is not only small enough not to overtake the desk but it also counteracts the symptoms of a repetitive strain injury. A Repetitive strain injury is very likely to a university student that is doing a lot of typing… so every university student in the last 100 years or so.

Reusable Insulated Water Bottle

With dorm rooms as small as they are it’s not the smartest idea to constantly have a case of bottled water in your space (plus it’s bad for the environment). Getting a quality insulated water bottle will reduce the amount of space taken up in a dorm as well as it will help fight the inevitable hangovers in the mornings.

Utility Hooks

Like mentioned above, dorm rooms are usually very small and compact. Where are you going to put all the junk you just had to have in this little space that you share with a stranger? Your answer is utility hooks that come off the wall after use with little to no damage to the paint on the wall. Hang up all the things you don’t have room on your desk or shelves and watch your room fall into place just like you pictured in your head.

This concludes our top five essentials that everyone needs to bring to university. There are plenty more things that could be added to this list but these are the ones we, past university students, have deemed the most important to bring with you.
