You'll probably be thinking what to bring with you right about now, to help make sure you don't forget anything important, and to stop you bringing everything you own follow our little guide, if there's anything you think we've forgotten please email me at roseicooney@live.co.uk.

Documentation
*Passport/Driving License - nowhere takes any other form of ID - so if you're a drinker....it's a must!
*Insurance Documents - please get insurance, it's quite unlikey something will get nicked as St George's is really secure...but you will break something
*TV License - check your room gets reception before you buy it, if you're in Rowanhurst or Limehurst this isn't a problem.
*Your student loan information - just incase it's best to bring it with you.
*NHS number and vaccination details - makes it easier when registering with the University Medical Practice
*Bank details including a cheque book - maybe leave your paying in book at home for your parents...you never know, they might be in a good mood.

Things for your room
*Photos - make your room more homely with photos of your friends and family.
*Posters - there's a poster sale in the first few weeks, so maybe don't bring them just incase they get ruined on the journey.
*If you're in Oakhurst you get a big comfy chair, so maybe bring a throw or something to put over that.
*Postcards - a nice way to decorate your pin board....it's too big just for notices!
*Cushions - always nice...but may end up in a heap on the floor!
*Fairy Lights - give your room a bit more character.
*Alarm Clock - because, unfortunately, you will have lectures to go to :(
