Our unique storage boxes and packing materials for students
Our durable boxes are made from double-walled, chemically-hardened cardboard. So, you can trust they'll keep your uni stuff clean and dry during overseas journeys and storage.
Available in Large and Standard sizes (see underneath for dimensions), we suggest overordering our boxes. If there are any unused spares in brand-new condition, we'll collect them for free. Specially-shaped containers are available for items such as sports equipment and musical instruments.
You are free to use your own storage containers. However, please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates, used food boxes and bin liners. As they break easily, they could damage the rest of your belongings.

4 reasons why Newcastle is a student's dream
Home to a large student population centred around two major universities, the University of Newcastle and Northumbria University. You'll find student life packed with endless activities on and off campus.
Read on for 4 unbeatable reasons why you won't regret studying on the Tyne:
One of the best things about studying here is the city's affordability. Living costs are much lower than in student hubs such as London or Edinburgh. You can enjoy a decent quality of life without breaking the bank. Student accommodation is fairly-priced, and drinks are cheap. What more could you want?
Known for its legendary nightlife, students can enjoy a range of pubs and clubs. Popular hotspots include the Bigg Market and Quayside. Catch touring rock and pop bands across the city at venues such as the Metro Radio Arena and the O2 Academy. The Sage Gateshead hosts classical and contemporary music performances, comedy shows and theatre.
Great for sports lovers:
Catch a football game at the iconic St James' Park, home of Newcastle United, or hop on a quick train to visit their rivals Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. The world's largest half marathon, the Great North Run, happens each September and is open to all. The city also has excellent exercise facilities, including gyms, cricket grounds, swimming pools, and sports halls.
Plenty of green spaces::
Jesmond Dene and Exhibition Park offer a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Both are popular parks for students to relax in and unwind after studying. Less than one hour's drive away is the Northumberland countryside. More adventurous people looking to let off steam can enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, and camping.
