Any parent knows just how hard it is to let those not so 'little' ones go and finally fly the nest. Moving away from home is a daunting step for everyone and the feel of apprehensive teens is in the air as their new big adventure to University is soon to embark, or their return for the second or final year of studies. To ensure they get the most out of their experience and settle in as best they can, we have the perfect guide to help them personalise their first flat to make them feel at home in their new space.
If you're on return to university and you're moving from student accommodation to your first shared house, create your own individually styled space with a new set of essentials. However, if your experience is just beginning, on initial arrival, University halls can be quite frightening at first glance. With a bare, empty and cold room with god awful curtains and a questionable looking mattress. But have no fear, our University essential collections has everything you need to bring their space to life without breaking the bank.

They're sumptuously soft and, at this price, will help your purse stretch that bit further for those last remaining bits and pieces.

However, this problem can be easily solved with our mattress and pillow protector pack from as little as £6. These can be enough to turn their bed into a sleep haven.
