Another great snack to bring to campus is a packet of chips. You can opt for a healthy option or something a little less nutritious, that’s completely up to you and how you feel on the day.

The staple University student diet, a delicious cup of two-minute noodles. You’ll find that most university campuses have some amenities available for you to use either before or between your classes for that day. This can include a kettle and in some cases a microwave. When you learn when you find these things you can simply throw a cup of two-minute noodles in your bag and use the available hot water to prepare them.

These make for hearty meals and can be either eaten cold or heated up using the microwaves available on campus. Both filling and a rewarding snack to eat on your lunch break, there is nothing better than Chinese takeaway or a few slices of pizza to fill you up before you sit down to write more of your assignments.
