Budgeting at university can be tough, so the Bridges is lending a hand with its annual Student Raid event on 1 October. With stores throughout the centre offering students discounts, freebies and goody bags, we’ve picked out five items we’ve got our eye on.


  1. Hotel Chocolat, Everything H-Box


It may seem like an indulgent purchase, but there’s no better time than the Student Raid to pick up a treat. Share it with your new housemates or save it for a pick-me-up when you have a deadline looming.

Price £12.95


  1. New Look, Rust Suedette Heeled Chelsea Boots


Make the most of the discounts to grab a bargain for autumn. These versatile, rust coloured boots won’t look out of place at a lecture, the library or even the Students’ Union.

Price £27.99


  1. Next, Brushed Cotton Green Check Bed Set


Those looking for sensible purchases will find an array of deals on homeware, including this tartan bedding set to help make your accommodation feel more like home.

Price £25


  1. Topman, White Graphic T-Shirt



The event is a great excuse to pick up an item of clothing you’ve had your eye on for a while. Head to Topman for the Vision Streetwear Range and make the most of an in-store DJ while you shop.

Price £25


  1. Waterstones, Cards Against Humanity


Games can add another level of entertainment to your parties and Cards Against Humanity remains a popular choice – for good reason. Use it as an ice breaker to get to know your new housemates.
