Things to bring

Things you’ll need to bring for your room at Mary’s:

  • Pictures and posters – these will make your room feel much more homely, as the walls can seem a bit bare at first.
  • White tack, to stick things up (you can’t use blue tack in college rooms).
  • Bed linen – College DOES NOT provide bedding and so you’ll need your own sheets, pillows and your own nice duvet and cover.
  • Towels
  • A bath mat (if you’re lucky enough to end up with an ensuite).
  • Bedside lamp
  • Alarm clock – at least try and make your 9ams…
  • Some mugs and basic cutlery
  • A clothes hanger/airer – the washing machines do provide free drying, but some people prefer to air dry clothes.
  • An extension adaptor
  • Laundry basket
  • Coat hangers
  • A doorstop – this is a really great way to make friends when you first move in; just prop your door open and people will stop in and say hi.
  • Anything else you might want – speakers, cushions, blankets etc. – but please note that the burning of incense and candles in rooms is not allowed (it sets off the fire alarm).
