  • Make sure you bring what is needed.

Most of the student accommodations provide the basic appliances that may be needed- like a kettle or an iron. Before you decide to pack up everything for college, make sure you know what is necessary to bring and what will be provided. Do not pack up useless things because there won’t be enough room for the things that are required, let alone those that are extra.

  • Pack your things in an organized manner.

Do not shove things in your cartons without any sense of organization. Your clothes should be well kept, each item rolled up or folded properly. The wires and electronics should go in one box, but make sure they don’t tangle. Similarly, all of your other things should be packed in an orderly fashion. This will make unpacking at college pretty easy and I guarantee you will not regret putting in all the effort.

  • Plan the arrival time with your roommate.

You can always plan when to reach campus/accommodation with your roommate. This will not only help you get along with them on the very first day, you could also set up your accommodation/room together and make sure what’s comfortable for the both of you. It will give both of you ample time to get to know each other and also avoid any room-related issues later.

  • Purchase your text books on time.

If you have to purchase your text books from the on-campus book store, make sure you go at a time when it is relatively less crowded. This way, you will be able to carefully see and buy your books, without much hassle. If you want more convenience, you can always order your text books online and have them delivered to you at your place of accommodation.

  • Do not hesitate to meet new people.

Do not shy away from making new friends and hanging out with strangers on your move-in day. Sometimes, the people you meet on the very first day turn out to be your best friends through college and even after that. Lend a helping hand to whoever needs it and do not worry too much about asking for help yourself. Everyone around you probably is stressed out and has the same fears as you.

  • Be careful while unpacking and moving your things around.

Chances are, that if you are moving into a shared accommodation or building, other students would be moving-in on the same day as you. So be mindful of your belongings, make sure you carry everything to your room, and nothing goes unnoticed or left behind.
