College is a new phase of life and everyone feels differently about it. With the newfound independence and responsibility, everyone wants to explore the world and gather new experiences. The value of ‘home’ increases for those who move out of their family homes and start living in hostels and PGs. Let’s take a peek inside the home of a university student to find what are the things they can’t live without.

Books

Reading books help one to experience multiple realities, change his/her perspective. It makes you aware and widens your horizons. Reading books also helps one to kill time during commuting.

Laptops

A student is incomplete without his/her laptop. Quite contrary to school, a college goer’s life revolves around their laptops. Preparing presentations and completing assignments, studying for exams, all of it is impossible without a laptop. One cannot forget the most essential purpose of a laptop in binge-watching shows on Netflix either. Earphones and headphones are ideal while travelling and even good for studying.
