The student raid takes places at the Bridges shopping centre on 1 October and is the perfect time to stock up on essentials, with a fantastic range of promotions, discounts and giveaways on offer throughout the evening.
From keeping warm, to making your student digs a home away from home, there’s plenty to choose from at the Bridges and we’ve rounded up five of the essential items a student cannot live without.
1. River Island, Stone ‘Carpe Diem’ Rucksack
From your laptop to your lab coat, you will need to transport your things between lectures. A good backpack will never go out of style and choosing a neutral colour means you won’t have a problem coordinating it with your clothes.
2. Primark, Jacquard Leaf Cushion
You can’t always guarantee your accommodation will make you feel at home, but there are simple and affordable ways to fix this. Cushions are a great way to inject some personality into your room and Primark has a great selection.
3. Debenhams, Red Herring
With the weather being so unpredictable, a good coat is an essential purchase for any student. They can be expensive, so making the most of the discounts on offer at the raid will make sure you can choose one you love without having to compromise on quality.
4. Tiger, Laundry Basket
Student accommodation isn’t always the largest of spaces, so making sure you use it well is essential. A laundry basket will keep your room looking clean and tidy and help you get into a good routine.
5. TK Maxx, A4 Optical Geometrix Notebook
Staying organised at university is essential to avoid a last minute panic when your deadlines are due and the right stationary can make all the difference. Invest in some stylish notebooks to give you the motivation to keep your notes neat and precise.
