What do I need to bring?

Travel light: you can always pick up other things that you need later. Bring some home comforts and everything from this list.

  • Important paperwork – passport, driving licence, letters from the University and the Student Loan Company, bank details, NHS card
  • Bedding – duvet and cover, pillows and pillowcases, mattress protector. We've partnered up with UniKitOut who can provide bedding packs which are delivered directly to Hull ready for your arrival. Use the code HULL10 at the checkout to receive 10% off all orders.
  • Clothing – be selective, remember that you'll still be here in the winter, and don't forget the hangers!
  • Towels
  • Plates, glasses, mugs and cutlery – even in catered halls, you'll need something to eat a takeaway with!
  • Laptop – plus charger and extension cables
  • Books and stationery
  • Medicines – make sure you're stocked up with any prescribed medication, and don't forget paracetamol and cold remedies
  • Toiletries – you can buy most of these when you arrive, so ditch the heavy bottles and only pack the essentials

For self-catering accommodation, bring pans, utensils and anything else that you need to whip up a good meal. We'll provide you with cooking facilities (cooker, microwave), and fridge and freezer space.

What do I need to do?

There are a few things worth doing before you arrive. Ticking these off the list early will give you time to concentrate on the more exciting things that Welcome Fest has in store:

If you watch live broadcasts from a TV in your room or use the BBC iPlayer, you need a TV Licence. You can find out more and order yours from the TV Licensing website.

All University accommodation comes with basic personal possessions insurance. Take a look at what's covered and consider if this meets your needs.

You probably already have a bank account, but you may get extra services with a student account. Research the best deal for you.
