What to pack for uni: my ultimate packing list

Hey guys ^^
As part of my uni tips series, I thought I'd share my packing list for last year!
I think I managed to not underpack or overpack, and it might be a helpful starting point for any of y'all going to start uni next year! Don't forget, it might be easier to buy some of this stuff, such as cleaning supplies and food, when you've arrived. Also if you can, contact your new flatmates to see if you can share stuff such as pans.
