5 Things You Need In University

You never know what you’ll need at university but it’s a good idea to always have these items with you. Here’s five things you need in university:


If you’re in university you probably know that students rarely have time for proper meals. Even though I think you should definitely try to eat actual meals sometimes you end up eating a little later than expected and for these times it’s a blessing to have some water and snacks with you. It really helps refuel and it saves you time since you don’t have to stand in line at Starbucks for like an hour trying to get some snacks since you already have some with you.

A notebook/pencil case

Even if you type your notes (I always do) I think having a notebook and some pens/pencils/stationery in general is a good idea. You never know when you’ll need it and it’s one of those things that you are likely to need very often.


Sometimes you sit really close to people after spending all day running from one class to another like a headless chicken. For these times it helps to have some perfume with you (samples are perfect for this!) that you can quickly spray. It helps make you feel more secure and smell like a treat!


Coffee is a necessity but coffee breath isn’t. Having gum with you can really help especially if you have one of those annoying classes where you’re forced to talk to everyone. I also read that chewing gum helps you concentrate too so there’s another reason to carry some around with you!


Honestly carrying tissues with you is a huge help even in general not just at university. You never know when you’ll need them- and trust me you will need them- so it’s really just a good idea to keep some on you at all times.

  1. For the gum one: Particular mint. Any type of mint should do, but peppermint is the best. Even candy. When you suck on a mint candy while studying a subject and then do the same while taking a test, it’s been shown to help with test scores. 😀
    Also, reusable water bottle. Most unis have filling stations.

  2. Honestly having water and a snack will really get you through a long day of lectures! Great post 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed this post! I will definitely be remembering to put some perfume in my bag next year, I don’t know how I didn’t think of that! I also agree with brining water, if I forget it I get headaches then find it hard to concentrate.
