If you're heading off to university or college in a different city, you might have packed your laptop and books, but what may not have considered is the furniture your new room will provide. While it's likely to have a bed and maybe some wardrobe space, it may not have a good work desk. Studying might not be top of your list of priorities for the first few weeks, but having somewhere to sit and do your coursework will definitely increase your chances of actually getting it done. Here are a few advantages to having a desk at university or college.
Away from Distractions
If the only available table or flat work space is in your kitchen or common room, you're going to find it very difficult to stay on task. You might find yourself having some great conversations, but your coursework is definitely not going to get done at speed. Working somewhere shut off from people and other distractions is likely to be much more productive. If you don't have a huge amount of space in your room, think about investing in a corner desk to make the most of the space you do have.
Save your Bed for Sleeping
Some students will attempt to work from their beds for a while, thinking that it's just a comfier version of a desk and chair. While it may be comfier, it can often be too comfy. Before you know it, it's the next day, and that coursework still hasn't been done! A computer desk can provide a much better alternative to studying on your bed, allowing you to separate sleeping from studying.
Libraries and study rooms are often very popular with students, as they are usually quiet and free from distractions. However, even if you are a fan of working in the library, having a desk in your room means you're able to continue working even when the library is shut. Perfect if you need to do a late night cramming session! Interested? Whether you're staying at home or moving away for uni, the right desk can make all the difference to your study habits.
