10 songs to pack for uni to

So you’re heading off to university. You’ve got your year planned out and you can’t wait to leave home—but first you need to get packing. It’s certainly not the most exciting part of the adventure, so we’re going to help you get motivated. Here are 10 of our favorite packing tunes, in one epic playlist, to help you get started stuffing those boxes. Listen to them whenever you want on Apple Music. Just subscribe through UNiDAYS for only £4.99 a month. That’s probably less than you’ll spend on one late-night kebab run this term.

1. Blink 182 - Going Away To College

This one is fairly self explanatory, but if this is your first year heading off to uni it’s going to get you super pumped!

2. Katy Perry - California Gurls

Definitely apt if you’re off to Cali (probably more likely Coventry) but still a catchy as hell tune if you’re not. Bikinis, zucchinis, martinis remember!

3. Ludacris - Area Codes

No playlist is complete without Luda! Wherever your new postcode may be, this song will have you ready to get there.

4. Guns & Roses - Welcome To The Jungle

This choice is no reflection on what it’s actually going to be like at uni. Honest.

5. Jay Z & Alicia Keys - Empire State Of Mind

Just like ‘California Girls,’ this is obviously much more poignant if you’re actually moving to New York but more likely Nottingham if we're being real. Even if you’re not, it’s still an awesome song that you can belt out whilst you’re trying to shove tangled socks into that suitcase.

6. All American Rejects - Move Along

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with any song by the All American Rejects. This one just happens to have a moving theme. But really any of them will give you the boost you need to get all packed up.

7. Rihanna - Work

Moving is exciting, but let’s face it, packing can be a chore. After the 3rd roll of packing tape and 14 cardboard boxes, packing gets a little dull. Rihanna is anything but dull. Crank this song, take a dance break, keep your spirits high, and get that werrrrk done.

8. Asher Roth - I Love College

A cliche? Maybe. A great song? Definitely. This is a true uni anthem that’s sure to have you rarin’ to get back on campus.

9. 50 Cent - In Da Club

Because even 13 years after it first came out, it gets played at almost every party. It’s just that good.

10. DJ Snake & Lil Jon - Turn Down For What

There’s no introduction needed for this epic tune. Strap in, uni is coming! applemusic_perk (1)
