Hello there! It's possible today is your very first day at university. We remember it well... although admittedly, our profound fondness for G&T has hampered much of the Preloved team's student memories. It's also entirely possible you're feeling odd about being away from home or baffled about the idea of operating a washing machine. If you're in a hall without catering (daredevil) we're going to tell you right now - takeaway pizza and dried noodles do not maketh the man. Natalie, our kind and excellent blog editor, has made a little Student Zone just for you. We'll be updating it throughout the year and hopefully getting some of you lot to write for us! If you fancy yourself as a writer and feel you could make a contribution to the Preloved Student Zone, why not pop us an email:
