Heading for your first stint at college and unsure of what you really need to carry along? Landmark makes it easy for you. Check out our handy list of college essentials.

Bags/Totes/Sling Bags

Ideally your first college companion, a campus bag, sling bag or large tote is a great choice to carry all those essentials like stationery, snacks, money, books that you may need on a day-to-day basis. Stay ahead of your game and make a style statement with quirky and fashionable bags. Take your pick from printed florals, abstract designs, bags with messages or sequined ones for a touch of glam. Choose a roomy tote that can accommodate multiple items and offers quick access. If you travel longer hours to college, a backpack with zippered compartments to store and organise is an excellent idea. Sling bags make for great storage accessories for after-college hours as well. You can also use a stylish gym bag to double up for college and post-college work-out sessions.



Jot down notes, journal your college memoirs, pen down random musings or creative inspirations with a handy notebook. Explore spiral bound notebooks, note pads, diaries, planners and more to ensure you stay organised and on schedule. Consider binders to hold those loose pages, leaflets and more. A paper clipboard makes a great choice for those creative jam sessions when you want to quickly pen down ideas on pages for campaigns and projects.



Handy and multifunctional, stationery are a must-have on a day out to college. Colour code content with pens, highlight important information with colour highlighters or use markers to sketch out general ideas for projects and more.

Small Pouches for “ETC.”

Small and compact, pouches and small cases are versatile and multi-functional storage accessories that you can slip into your college bag. Pick from different materials and styles to suit your preferences. Store make-up, loose change, earphones, charger, sanitizer, pair of sunglasses, I.D, keys and so much more that you may need for a long day.

Water Bottles and Lunch Boxes

Stay hydrated when on the go, with a handy water bottle. Explore a range of stylish sippers to sip in style. From messages on bottles to straw sippers and vacuum flasks that ensure your drink will stay hot or cold, there’s one for each kind. Pair it with a nice lunch box filled with munchies to ensure you ward off hunger pangs and refuel for all-day sessions on campus.
