If you have a son or daughter moving to University and you’re wondering what you need to buy and pack, then look no further! Our University packing list is your complete guide to all of the packing essentials for the University student of 2023.
It covers everything you'll need, including cooking items, bathroom and bedroom items and a few treat suggestions too! The guide also includes suggestions from our 25,000+ strong Facebook community of midlife mums. You can print off the guide to tick off each item as you buy it and pack it.
Once you've started thinking about the packing, then read on for a copy of our free student cookbook too!
We're also delighted to offer a student cookbook - packed with tasty treats such as Chicken & Ginger Stir Fry, Easy Lamb Skewers and Veggie Pittas. Each meal is easy to make, with simple ingredients, and there's swaps listed for when your teen doesn't quite have the right ingredients to hand. A huge thank you to The Latte Lounge Nutritionist Lisa Swabel for authoring this cookbook for us.

Katie is the CEO and founder of The Latte Lounge which she created after suffering with undiagnosed perimenopausal symptoms for many years, which she struggled to find any relevant support for, both on and offline.
Every day Katie and the team hear from, and help, hundreds of women who come to The Latte Lounge for support, information and signposting for all their (and their families) health and wellbeing issues.
Her passion and commitment to supporting and challenging women's health inequalities stems from a desire to carry the baton of her fathers work in the field of breast cancer, and in memory of his mother (her grandmother) who tragically lost her life at a very young age to this cruel disease.
Previously Katie worked in PR, marketing, fundraising and event organising for a variety of charities, helping children and adults with learning disabilities, seriously ill children and teenagers in hospital, as well as supporting adults with mental health problems.
