The great trek – your packing guide

The day that you depart on your great trek to the NWU is quickly approaching. You are probably caught in a tsunami of emotion. We know how nerve-wrecking it can be, and want to make life a little easier for you, so we’ve compiled a checklist of everything you might need on campus.

This list has been compiled to assist both students staying in hostels and students who will use private accommodation. It is, however, only a guide to make sure you don’t forget some of the important items that you might need at varsity. You’re welcome to bring more, as long as it fits into your room!

This checklist also indicates those things that will be provided in campus housing to ensure you don’t bring any unnecessary items.

You probably already know that RAG and rain go hand-in-hand, so make sure you bring water boots and enough old clothes. Chances are, you’re about to get dirty and muddy!

But you’ll also have a chance to play dress-up – the first year formals and welcoming ball are also ahead of you, so remember to bring an evening gown or suit… this is an event that you won’t want to miss!
