Returning to University after Christmas

A new year is here, meaning it’s time for students to return to university after some much-needed time away for the festive period. Whether you’re preparing for exams, on the hunt for a part-time job in 2022, or are just looking forward to reuniting with friends and enjoying getting back to partying and socialising, Eldon Square has all you need for the transition back to student life.

Knuckle down for exams

January for students tends to mean one thing… exams. You may have enjoyed a long and relaxing break from work over Christmas but now is the time to get your head down and crack back on with studying. Our brands have all the basics you’ll need to be ready and raring to go over exam period, including stationery and organisation essentials from Paperchase and Poundland and cosy clothing to make studying less of a chore from Jack Wills.

Enter the working world

Returning home for Christmas may have also come with a lecture about managing money and looking after yourself. So, now it’s time to begin the new year job search to secure some extra pennies for 2022. Check out our jobs page for all our available job vacancies in centre, including job listings at Pandora, Chiquito and Boots.

Prepare to party with friends again

Once you’ve completed all of your exams and deadlines for January, it’s time to celebrate! After all that hard work you deserve to let your hair down and treat yourself to a brand new outfit to do just that. River Island, New Look and H&M are full of eye-catching outfits to make you feel a million dollars, and Accessorize have the perfect jewellery and handbag additions to complete your outfit without breaking the bank. Make sure you check out the January sales in centre, as well as our Super Student Discounts to get the very best offer on your new outfit.

Pick up some home comforts

It can often be a shock to the system returning back to your student house after just getting comfortable again in your family home so, pick up some home comforts to ensure your student house is just as homely and cosy. Yankee Candle have a range of relaxing fragrances to help you de-stress during exam period, whilst keeping your bedroom smelling delicious and feeling snug. Next also have an array of fluffy blankets and comfy cushions to truly make your university house the happiest place to be.
