Essential University Checklist

28 August 2015

Flying the nest for your first term at university? You’ll have your hands full thinking about partying (sorry mum, studying!) so why waste time on the high street buying new things?

You can get all your student essentials right here at B&M, and with our handy checklist you can tick everything off in one go. Here are just some of the unbeatable bargains you’ll find in-store.


Don’t kid yourself, you’re going to be spending a lot of your time in bed. So make sure you really enjoy snoozing half an hour into your 9am lecture.

Browse everything you need from reversible duvet cover sets in a rainbow of colours, to comfy “bounceback” pillows and bedding bundles. Our Bed to Go Complete Bed Set includes a mattress protector!


When you can’t find the takeaway menu, you might have to venture into the kitchen. You’ll need these convenient contraptions for making quick and easy meals:

  • a kettle for Pot Noodles and essay-deadline-coffee;
  • a microwave for re-heating last night’s pizza, and:
  • a toaster for -yep, you guessed it-...toast!

For those more adventurous students, you’ll need frying pans, saucepans and chopping/kitchen knives – this Russell Hobbs 12 piece Knife Block is a sharp saver!


Notepads, pens, ring binders…you don’t want to splash your cash on stationery; luckily at B&M you don’t have to spend a fortune. You can get all your stationery supplies including pencil cases, project books and printer paper in-store, and you won’t have to eat in to your student loan.
