You are not covered by your parents licence, the University or your friends next door.</li><li>Personal goods: You'll need to buy items such as toothpaste, shampoo, soap and toilet paper if you've got an en-suite bathroom. How much you spend on these will depend on your own personal preference and budget.</li><li>Crockery and cutlery: Self-catering halls of residence require you to bring your own pots and pans, and everything else you'll need in the kitchen.</li></ul>LTU Authoring
