Get Student Life Sorted with Wilko

1st September 2016

A-Level results day was just a couple of weeks ago, and now thousands of students are getting ready to start university in September.

Whatever you’re studying and wherever you’re going, there’s a lot to organise. Fortunately, Wilko is at hand with everything you need to get student life sorted.

Kitchen Essentials

The kitchen is often the least-lived in room of any student accommodation, inhabited for as long as it takes for the microwave to ping, or the cheese on your toast to melt. But even the least culinary-minded student needs to invest in practical kitchenware for their first year of uni.

Wilko’s great basic ranges of dinnerware, pots and pans and gadgets are sturdy enough to last you through to graduation. They even have a homebrew range, if you want to get popular!

Student Life Tip: Choose a colourful kitchenware range so you can tell what’s yours (and avoid your housemates wandering off with your spoons!)

Home Comforts

Going away from home for the first time can be a daunting prospect, but with a little help it’s easy to make the room in your student digs feel like a home from home. The classic student bedroom features a pin board full of photos of your friends and family, tons of cushions, and, of course, fairy lights.

Wilko have some great ranges of bedding and soft furnishings that’ll keep you cosy this autumn and give your room a bit of colour.

Student Life Tip: Mark your duvet cover with a Sharpie laundry marker to avoid mix-ups in the laundrette.

Stationery

As much fun as uni life can be, don’t forget you’re there to study! Wilko has some great stationery collections with a designer edge and an affordable pricetag. The brand new Tribes stationery range is a must for anyone who wants to brighten up their lectures.

Our stand-out student faves have got to be the cute Tribes timetable – perfect for organising your week – and the Tribes revision cards for when exam season hits.

Student Life Tip: Once you’re a couple of terms in, it’s easy to lose track of where your notes are for each topic. Wilko’s range of desk storage and filing can be a lifesaver.
