Packing Tips
Unsure what to bring with you? Here are some ideas to help you pack for university.
To save space whilst travelling, you may prefer to buy larger items once you have arrived. There are places on or
close to campus, including the Rootes Grocery Store, which stock a selection of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery
and glassware.
Please see the Warwick Accommodation website for details of what is provided in our halls of residence
(undergraduate and postgraduate).

welcome to bring your own bed linen and duvet if you prefer.
