And yes, I know! It’s like these schools forget to add a checklist of items you need to bring. How do they expect you to know what to bring to school for an entire school year?

Stress yourself no more because you’ll have a comprehensive list of items you won’t forget to send to school if you keep your head up and read this article to the last word…

Disclaimer: You’re not going to an alien world of zombies. Don’t pack like you need your entire life possessions to survive. Some of these items in the checklist can be purchased on campus so your baggage doesn’t need to feel like you’re ready for a space expedition. And oooh, congratulations! You’re officially on your own. Don’t screw it up!Figuring out what to take to university can be a headache sometimes, especially for freshers.

Before your 1st day of Uni, you may overthink (or underthink) the things you need to carry along.

This article offers a checklist of items that would be helpful to you in the University.

The scope of this list covers basic items, however, you may need more or less depending on your program of study.

These have been grouped into categories: Essential items (Documents), Electricals, Room, Cooking, Clothing, Classroom and Others.


Passport/National ID/driving license or some form of ID

University admissions letter.

All your Student Finance Documents and receipts

hall of residence papers

Your course acceptance letter.

Your bank details and bank card.

Passport photos (about 10  of them)

Exam certificates (definitely bring them if you want to apply for scholarship and loans)

Do not forget this: Almost every university gives you a unique student identification number on your admission letter. You’d need it everywhere. Make a conscious effort to know it by heart and you’re one point above every other freshman.

Do not forget this: Dear queening ladies, you don’t want to spend your life’s worth on your hair. And trust me you can. Saloons are super expensive. Get a Blow dryer, Hair curlers, Curling iron, and Hair straightener if you want to save money.


When it comes to the clothing you’re packing for school, it’s more about your style of dressing. Dress neatly and decently but don’t try to impress. No one really cares. Pick your clothes and don’t forget to add these ones….

All your old school uniforms (Don’t lose an opportunity to flaunt your high school pride)

Top (Shirts, tees, tank tops)

  • Bottom (Trousers, skirts, jeans)
  • Dresses
  • Shoes
  • Sweaters,
  • Underwear
  • Pyjamas
  • Tie
  • Watch
  • Sport wear
  • Bag

  • Pens, pencils
  • Books, writing pad
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Calculator


I’m all about saving money because if you find yourself in some of the elite schools in the country especially in the capital, living can get expensive depending on your lifestyle.

All the ‘I don’t have time to cook people’ have enough money to spend. Don’t listen to them. You can always cook on weekends.

Again this list is not a one-size fit. Your individual preference will determine if you need these

For most institutions, you will be sharing a balcony or kitchen with other people. Some uni’s do not allow gas cylinders in the traditional halls, so bear that in mind.

  • Cutlery set (spoons, forks, knives)
  • Plates, Bowls
  • Cups/mugs
  • Rice cooker
  • Hot pan (electric cooker)


For most schools, you may not need to bring a bed, fan or lockers.

  • Bed sheets
  • Pillow
  • Duvet
  • Mirror
  • Hangers
  • Buckets
  • Brush, combs, flip-flops (slippers)
  • Hygiene products (soaps, creams, pads/tampons, sanitizers) … no brainer right?
  • Towel
  • Make-up 
  • Nail cutter


  • Mobile phone
  • Laptop or tablet
  • Pendrive or any other storage device
  • Power bank
  • Kettle/heater
  • Iron


  • Umbrella (when it rains, it pours)
  • First aid items (OTC painkillers, dewormers, etc.)
  • Sewing kit (Needle, thread)
  • Speakers
  • Gaming console

In case you forget to pack something, there are countless shops in and around campus from which you can buy your stuff.

Sometimes, these shops offer student discounts which can help you save some cash
