19 Thoughts Every University of York Student Has On Move-In Day

Exciting times! You’ve packed your carefully chosen new duvet cover, said goodbye to the family pet, and your parents are crying a tiny bit. That’s right, University of York move-in day is here.

1. “FINALLY.” 

UOY terms are always really late to start compared to other unis. So, as nervous as you may be, you’re just glad it’s finally happening.

2. “Why is York so far north?”

Chances are you’ve made the classic decision to bring EVERYTHING YOU OWN and a standard single room at York just isn’t going to accommodate all that shit.
