Across the country university and college students are preparing to move away to start life on campus… but one thing they often forget to include are some practical clothing options and beauty products to match their hectic schedule. Carry on reading to learn more about back to school university essentials  that every student should pack before heading to campus this Fall.


For most students the new school year means learning how to live in the dorms and sharing spaces like the bathroom and study lounge.


Pack clothing and footwear to make living away from home feel as comfortable as home.
Matching sets and comfortable loungewear are not only a hot fashion trend for fall but are also comfortable and perfect for long study sessions in the library, early morning classes and hanging out with your room mates.
Ditch your old sweatpants and grubby pyjamas. Pack comfortable and stylish clothing for this new school year.

Uniqlo has everything students need:

Practical, comfortable and neutral pieces are ideal for online and in class learning.
The price point is also perfect for student budgets.
Here are some must have items from Uniqlo:
Uniqlo sweat split hoodie.
Uniqlo sweatpants.
Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Vest.
Souffle Yarn Mock Neck Sweater.
Satin Drape Jogger Pant

Waterproof slides are an essential because you can wear them in shared bathrooms and to walk around campus in.
They are ideal because they can be worn with socks if the weather is chillier and they are waterproof.
You can keep them clean and sanitary by simply wiping down with an antibacterial wipe or spray.
Reef has the perfect footwear for our university students, stylish, comfortable and fun
The fanning collection has a built in bottle opener underneath the shoe which in my opinion is a fun party trick.
