Used this service when my second born went to uni this month, to avoid the stress we had getting my first born and his goods to Uni a few years earlier. We weren't sure what date my daughter would arrive, but the helpful call centre was able to reassure me that it would be simple to change the date of the order - and it was. The parcel arrived on time, and my daughter is delighted with everything - especially the cat duvet cover!

Fantastic! Great quality items, well packaged and arrived on time. Everything you need for the kitchen. Would highly recommend. We priced these items separately and wouldn’t have saved much. But it meant we weren’t trailing around shops picking stuff up. Thank you
Jill Cram, London
Great service delivery exactly on the day requested. The products were high quality and well packaged ensuring that nothing was damaged on delivery
Simon Wilkinson, London
I moved to London for uni from the US during Covid pandemic. Upon arrival, I had to be quarantined for 14 days and was not allowed to go out to the shops to buy anything for my flat. My Student Essentials came in super handy and sent a kitchen pack with almost all of my essentials and a bedroom pack which allowed me to live in comfort until I was able to leave.
When you order, you can choose from a pretty wide array of bedding sets in various sizes. While I really like the kitchen products they sent, I wish there was a way to choose what they looked like. When checking out, you select your delivery date and the stuff is waiting for you when you arrive. It went off without a hiccup. I would use them again

I really like the idea of this and think it works on more levels than just for students.
I ordered the kitchen set and I was very pleased with it. The quality is really good on everything except the cheese grater, the metal and the plastic handle/top don't seem to fit together properly.
Definitely worth the money though and I was pleasantly surprised when I contacted customer services to make a change to the delivery date.
Chris Linnett, Newcastle
Adopting myself to a whole different culture and environment is absolutely demanding. With the student package of My student Essentials I could reduce so much burden that I had to handle if there wasn't the business. High quality bedding and kitchen appliances made the start of my life in London much easier! Most of all, the service that they deliver my products on the day of my arriving was the most helpful.
Zhang Liu, China
We used this site to purchase university items for my son. It was easy to use and had a great selection of items to chose from, you can even customise your box! Delivery was a little slower than I’d have liked but it did turn up on time which was good!
Ali Cook, London
With twins going to opposite ends of the country we have had a lot to sort out, the quality and range of products in the Kitchenware set was great. Price was the best i had seen so 2 sets ordered arrived perfectly as described and now on its way!
Many thanks will definitely use in future if required
Steve Crane, Birmingham
Uni kit out pack is great value and has me (almost) completely sorted for uni. It's stressful moving away and this kit just takes a lot of the stress out of it and allows you to forget all these things you might not have even thought of!
Moving into self-catered accommodation means that all the kitchen stuff will be really useful for me in my first year but it also feels good quality and you can tell they are quality items, so these will last beyond my time at uni :) thanks to My Student Essentials for helping me to get ready to my move to the University of Hull.
PS. Quick delivery time as well, 2 days on a bank holiday weekend!
