http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/interiorsandshopping/8681914/10-tips-for-your-room-at-university.html

A few big jazzy dishes and serving spoons for the communal spaghetti bolognese are essential.

Pinch the family Scrabble or Monopoly, and also take some packs of playing cards.

Freshers should take a tip from boarding school veterans, and pack a large trunk with all the nick-nacks and antiques that make their rooms feel special.



Thank me later.

A deck of cards is a must in any communal living area.

I brought a trunk full of nicknacks my mom used to decorate the house.

Everybody beat me with tube socks filled with quarters.

I didn't feel like reading the 10 'tips' but I am sure they are just some filler for the site/news paper and not actual good tips.

My advice based on experience;

-Keep your room manageable and easy to keep clean.

-Bring/buy enough socks and underwear, if you skip a wash or twice, you won't be walking in old underwear.

-Decide what kind of closet/wardrobe you need. do you really need a tall closet/wardrobe you can hang your clothes in, or is a closet with big trays enough?

-Buy a nice box for your dirty clothes.

-Think of a place to put your clothes to dry

-Use mugs that you can clean easily, or else you won't!

etc etc

Pack that lovely Mexican throw, the baseball glove from your summer in America and the cushions from Bulgaria. They will make your room look different, and encourage conversation on something you know about.


I hope she's ****ing joking.

NOBODY cares about your gap year. Just shut the **** up about it if you want to make any friends.

I would not be friends with anyone who has that ****ing 'Keep Calm and Carry On' thing on their walls

OT: this is a daft, insensitive article at a time when British people have to sell both their kidneys to go to uni.

a selection of seductive Paul Simon numbers up your sleeve. But leave the Fender electric guitar, just for the moment, until you get a better handle on the character and tastes of your neighbours.

2. Avoid obvious clichés

Leave behind anything to do with Che Guevara, or those French Art Nouveau Absinthe/Black Cat posters. Everyone has them. Ditto Abercrombie and Fitch ads or the Keep Calm and Carry On poster which your mum has in the kitchen back home.

This I can get behind.

Bring the trunk.
But fill it with bottles of jagermeister instead.

Instant popularity.

For the record though, I grew up 2 miles from my uni.

Yeah I think this one's pretty sensible.


At my uni there is a general trend of Peep Show poster = cool, let's be friends!
It's a rule that's never led me astray.
#33
When I finally get off my bum and move out instead of commuting all day err'day I'm going to paint the letters "DON'T PANIC" in a large font on the outside of my door.


So they'll remain calm upon finding the pile of dead, rotting baby seals next to my bloody baseball bat. What do you mean no one cares about my gap year?

She is so right. I brought my antiques and a ukelele, and one day whilst playing the ukelele someone heard and came up to my room. It was the most beautiful woman in the world. She took one look at my antiques, trunk and John Lewis curtains that we immediately made love. She was so impressed with the quality of my sheets she returned again and again. She occasionally brought other friends along too.

Seriously, this reads like its aimed at posh idiots who are "living away from Mother and PaPa for the first time." My room in first year looked like a prison cell, and the only things I did to try and make it look any different was to put up a Guinness poster and an Iron Maiden poster. That's it. Meant moving out was piss easy
