It’s December, which means one thing, it’s time for making your student halls Christmassy! Mariah Carey has defrosted after a year in hiding and most importantly, it is time to desk your halls with festive joy. For many of you, your student accommodation has become your home away from home. Tis’ the season and you can make your university room feeling and looking like the Grinch’s grotto on a budget!

Here are our top tips for making your student room Christmassy:

  • Hang up Christmas lights around your notice board
  • Choose some festive bedding
  • Get some pine wood air freshener to get your room feeling and smelling like Santa’s grotto
  • Decorate your desk and window areas with tinsel
  • Get electric candles to make your room extra cosy
  • Drape Christmas coloured streamers around your space
  • Hang some baubles from your ceiling using suction tabs
  • Buy and decorate your very own Christmas tree, it can be a small one to complete your festive space!

As well as decorating your room, you can also do a Secret Santa with your friends. You can give the gift of Christmas by buying a gift for your friend, you put your presents in a bag and randomly pick out a gift, it could be from any of your friends, hence you all being Secret Santa’s!

There are many ways you can make your university accommodation fit for festivities this Christmas. You don’t have to have an interior design degree under your belt to get creative!
