Going Back to University: Furniture Essentials for a Cosy and Productive Space

8th August 2023Blog Post
As the new academic year approaches, many students return to university to pursue their studies. Along with the excitement of new challenges and experiences, one important aspect that should be considered is setting up a comfortable and valuable living space. In this short blog, we’ll explore some furniture essentials that can transform a dorm room or apartment into a cosy and functional environment, enabling students to thrive academically and socially.
  1. Desk and Chair:

Create a designated study area with a sturdy desk and ergonomic chair. A well-organised workspace can boost productivity and focus during study sessions. Look for desks with built-in storage to keep your books and stationery tidy.
  1. Shelves and Bookcases:

Keep your textbooks, study materials, and personal items organised with shelves or bookcases. Vertical storage, is perfect for making the most of limited space while adding personal style to your room.
  1. Multi-functional Furniture:

Consider investing in multi-functional furniture pieces to optimise your space. For instance, a futon or a sofa bed can serve as both seating and an extra bed for guests, while storage ottomans can double as seating and a place to stash belongings.
  1. Bedside Table:

A bedside table is a small yet essential piece of furniture. It’s perfect for holding a lamp, phone, a glass of water, and other bedtime necessities, providing convenience and comfort.

  1. Room Divider (if needed):

A room divider can offer privacy and define personal space in shared living, which can be particularly useful if you have a roommate or want to create separate areas for study and relaxation.
  1. Monitor

Enhance your productivity with the addition of a monitor. Connecting seamlessly to your laptop, it provides extra screen space for work, gaming, or enjoying movies. The expanded screen area is perfect for multitasking activities such as online meetings.


Heading back to university is exciting, and having the right furniture and IT essentials can significantly impact your overall university experience. By creating a comfortable and well-organised living space, you’ll be better equipped to focus on your studies and make the most of your time at university. Remember to balance functionality with personal style; your living space should reflect your unique personality and preferences.
Happy studying!
