Handy hacks to help you survive Freshers Week

By JordanBrowzer 15 Aug 2019

So, now that you've smashed your A-Levels and got your place at Sheffield Hallam - what's next?

Well, a lot!

There are some pretty exciting times ahead. If you aren't sure what's coming up or how to prepare, we are here to help...

  1. Don't overpack

    Believe it or not, you don't need to pack everything! Figure out the essentials so you don't fill your Mum or Dads car with way too much stuff. 
  2. Make it your second home

    Make it your home away from home. Pack things that remind you of home so if you ever feel homesick (FYI: completely normal) they'll help. Your favourite photos or even your Xbox are good ideas.
  3. Introduce yourself

    Yes, you're going through a big lifestyle change but so is everyone else. You're all in the same boat so don't stay in your room - talk to your flatmates or the people next door. 
  4. Take it easy

    This might be the first time you've had to look after yourself every day, decide what you do, and what you eat so don't go crazy! Enjoy the freedom but stay fit and healthy too. Go easy on the takeaways and alcohol.
  5. Budget

    Once your loan drops it's tempting to go on a shopping spree but put a budget together and get all the essentials (rent, food, transport, social life) out the way before you go buy those expensive trainers you want.

We are your go-to website for all the student hacks and tips you need during student life. Enjoy being a Fresher!
