From home must-haves, cleaning supplies and stationery we've handpicked the essentials you need at great prices to make student life that bit easier. With everything from bathroom towels to bedding and kitchen electricals to storage, get it all in one place and with up to 70% off vs. high street prices. Plus enjoy exclusive 10% student discount on top!

Sleep is important to our overall well-being, so pick up this Fusion Bethan Reversible Duvet Set for just £18. With it being reversible it’s as good as getting two for the price of one. Add some colourful cushions, or a throw and even a mattress topper for extra comfort.

Duvets & Pillows

Quality bedding, duvets and pillows are a must (to nurse a sore head after a night out, if nothing else) right? All jokes aside, quality bedding will aid a better night’s sleep but that doesn’t mean you need to pay over the odds. Pick up a Sarah Jayne Pillow Pair for just £7 and duvets from £12. Bargain!
