02 /Top tips for your first few weeks
To help you get settled in, here are five tips for your first couple of weeks...
- Unpack your stuff as soon as you arrive.
This will make your room feel like home sooner, and you won't be tripping over suitcases for weeks!
- Get to know your flatmates.
If you can hear someone in the kitchen, go and say hi. It sounds daunting but everyone is in the same position.
- Explore your accommodation.
Find your local laundry room, reception and supermarket. It's a great idea to explore with new friends.
- Take advantage of welcome events.
Check out the range of welcome events in your accommodation. Get to know your neighbours and RAs.
- Go to Fresher's Fair
Check out societies, get some freebies and see what the university has to offer
Finally, make use of the support available if you need any help or advice.
