Off to College: Making the Move

Off to College (1)

Moving out of home and into your college house is one of the major moments in your life. It comes with an exciting sense of freedom and new found responsibility. You need to be prepared for the move and we at Harvey Norman have made the process a whole lot easier with a collection of necessities for every student.

Below is a selection of furniture, appliances and bedding products that are perfect for you and your big move.


Popular for its intriguing design, the ‘Porter’ bookcase is ideal for the modern student. As well as a shape that allows it to fit into any corner of the room, its four spacious shelves are perfect for book and binder storage. Built with hardwood and available in two colours, the ‘Porter’ has the ability to be with you throughout your college years.


Every student needs a comfortable and suitable study space to get work done. With the ‘Porter’ desk you get a spaciously designed, study ready unit that has a large surface for getting projects and assignments done. Matched with the bookcase seen above, your study area is almost complete. All you’re missing now is the right chair, but we’ve got just the one for you.


Ultra-modern in design and functionality, the ‘Polly’ office chair will get you through those all-nighters with its complete comfort. Designed with wooden legs, a curved back and a padded seat, the chair is as stylish as it is comfortable. The chair also swivels 360°, allowing you to navigate your work station with ease.


You’re going to need a reliable kettle and toaster set to get ready for college every morning. Russell Hobbs are one of the world’s most respected makers of both and this pair comes prepared to set you up for the day. The kettle is 1.7L in size which is more than enough for a warm round of tea, while the toaster features all the modern functions needed to get your toast just right. So whether you pick up this set yourself or with your housemates, you’re guaranteed a great start to the day.



We all want to be the life of the party but it’s just not possible all the time. However, when you appear with the ‘Bose SoundLink Bluetooth’ speaker, there will be no debate over who’s the DJ. You can carry your music wherever you want and without hassle as the speaker is super lightweight. The speaker is also waterproof and durable with its silicon body and it even has a wireless Bluetooth range of 9 metres. So, even if the party spills outdoors, you can still take the tunes with you.

It’s not only incredibly soft to the touch, it’s also hypoallergenic which is perfect for allergy suffers.
