Your not-so-little ones are embarking on an adventure of a lifetime (purely academic of course) so why not send them to university with everything they need to get off to the best start. And no, we’re not talking about a six-pack of beers.

Without your home-cooked meals, words of wisdom and taxi driving services, they’re sure going to miss you. Say “I’ll miss you too” with some – ahem – practical life advice. They’ll come home for the holidays with a whole set of skills you never knew they had.

Let’s face it. Halls of residence aren’t renowned for their five star accommodation, and certainly aren’t a scratch on their own bedroom. There are, however, a few things you can do to make sure they feel right at home in their new abode.

Making their dorm feel a little less like a 1970s hotel room can be challenging. Wall stickers are a great way to add some decoration without a hammer and nail. We’ve got a range of wall stickers, from small shapes that create a wallpaper-like effect, to larger, statement designs. If you’re unsure of how to put up a wall sticker, we’ve created this handy video tutorial to help you every step of the way. Enjoy!

Long lectures and late night stints at the library will all feel do-able with the help of a motivational print or two. No essay will seem too long and no assignment too challenging with these wise words donning the wall. To make sure they get their room deposit back, try sticking it to the wall using washi tape across each corner of the print, rather than hanging it in a traditional frame. Explore our full collection of prints and art now.

Stationery envy is not pretty – trust us we’ve seen it. Give your newly titled ‘student’ a pencil case to be proud of this term. We’ve got everything from initialled iPad cases (how else are they going to catch up on their favourite Netflix show between seminars?) to stylish academic planners and notepads. Trust us, they’ll be on their way to a first in no time.
