Top 5 Must-Have for Freshers’ in Any Nigerian Higher Institution

Your first year is about finding your feet.

The transition from a secondary school into a higher institution of learning, can most times, be a big change for students as they embark on their own, with many moving away from family and friends for the first time.

For those stressing over this new phase of life and tomorrow’s uncertainties, there are ways to prepare before jumping on the gun, the following tips can help incoming fresh students get organized and build a foundation for academic success.


STUDENTREALESTATES is a fast-rising tech company that helps students in securing hostels.

It doesn’t matter where you are coming from, be it from the North, South, East, or even the West, STUDENTREALESTATES has got you covered.

All you need do is register and sign up for an account with them, search for your institution’s name, and without even stepping your feet in school yet, you can get yourself an accommodation(terms and conditions apply).

That’s not all STUDENTREALESTATES can do for you! STUDENTREALESTATES provides a platform where students can buy or sell any home appliances they want.

Another thing I will reveal about STUDENTREALESTATES, is the Quick housing sector for Nigerian students.

If you are trying to make money as a student, and you think you can share your space for a day or more with new students coming to your school; who doesn’t have where to stay or enough money to lodge in a guest house or hotel, well, you can actually share your hostel space for #1,000-#1,500 naira per night for one or more students. Imagine how much you would have made in an average of 5 days.

It is no longer surprising to see many fresh students leave behind, at home, or forget to come along with them, many important documents required to facilitate registration and documentation into their new institution. 

I know you might be in pressure, but try to be calm enough, so as not to forget any document you will be needing in school. Some of these documents are:

While others don’t have the luxury to get enough foodstuffs and important items or the opportunity to carry enough, it is not uncommon to see many fresh students rack up varieties of foodstuffs or other food items needed, as they embark on their journey to school.

Even if you don’t have enough money or capacity to get the foodstuffs that you need. Never neglect the chance of taking some of these personal care items. As they are very important and you will surely need them. 

  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Body cream or lotion
  • Hand soap
  • Body sprays, perfumes or deodorant
  • Shower shoes
  • Shampoo and
  • A towel


Health is wealth. Before you leave home, please do well to check with your doctor for your health records. Your health should be taken very seriously as you journey to school.

The stress and the total change in the environment can take a toll on one’s health.

You really don’t have to have an underlying health condition before you take your medications with you to your new school. You will also need a First Aid kit. 

  • Pain reliefs: for headache and body aches 
  • Antibiotics: for infections
  • Bandage and methylated spirit: for minor cuts or wounds
  • Inhaler: for asthmatic patients or other related conditions. 


I know this may sound a little funny, but to be honest with you, your phone is as important as any of the above-mentioned.

With the pressure, stress, journey, and total change of environment, it is very possible to lose your phone.

Your phone may be stolen or misplaced, and in most cases, go off; due to the poor electricity supply in most regions.

Make sure you protect and preserve your phone because you will need it for almost everything you do on campus. And if it is possible, get yourself a power bank.
