With a strange new environment and the knowledge that you’ll be sharing it with unfamiliar faces, starting out at college can be disorienting. IKEA, an expert in enhancing life at home, is now heading to the campus with a University Starter Box to help freshmen breeze through the transition.
The kit will be on sale for a limited period, and it seems to only be available in Canada and the UK. Anyhow, students anywhere who need a place to start can still download IKEA’s checklist and use it as a shopping list.
The University Starter Box in Canada (via Apartment Therapy) is filled with 18 sets of kitchen essentials to kickstart students’ journey of cooking their own economical meals. The entire selection would normally set customers back CA$126.32 (US$93), but IKEA is bundling it all into a budget-friendly CA$99 (US$73) price.
