To help with moving logistics and prepare for your foray into the world of “adulting” when going away to university it is helpful to determine what items you’ll need, what family and friends are able to pass along to you and what you’ll need to purchase.
Remember, before you finalize your moving list and purchase several items to move with you, find out what furniture, appliances, etc. are included in your university’s residence accommodations. For example, If you are moving to California from Canada to a shared space with roommates, it may be helpful for your space and budget to create a shared spreadsheet to keep track of who is bringing what specific items for use in the shared space, what you’ll need to buy, who is purchasing it, and how you’ll be dividing up costs.
Below is a comprehensive list to help you determine what items you’ll need for your move.
**Please note that you will need a Power Converter (or transformer) for the European sockets if you are for example moving from Canada to France for your studies.
