Winter at university can be a struggle for many students. Those shortened days, darker nights and even darker mornings can be a real nightmare.

This reason alone is why Radar is here to help.

With these five top tips, Radar can assure you that winter does not have to be as horrible as you would think! 

 

1. Layer up with plenty of clothes 

For those of you who would wait for a bus to get to RGU, the chances are you will get shivers down your spine. That is why layering up your clothes is a much-needed recommendation so, that you can be comfortable and warm. Instead of wearing just a long-sleeve dress, for instance, you can wear a vest/short sleeved t-shirt and a jumper underneath it to keep the cold at bay. Wearing the usual winter clothes such as a cosy coat, a woolly hat, gloves and of course, a scarf are always great warming additions to your wardrobe this time of year. If you feel the cold in lecture halls, one of Radar’s top tips is to wear a thick scarf in your lectures. That way, you don’t feel as cold as you would without one – especially if you cannot control the heating of the lecture hall. 

 

2. Drink hot drinks from student outlets or bring your own 

Drinking your favourite hot drink will bring you both happiness and warmth in your life! Hot drinks are known to be the saviours of students in winter. So, it is really recommended to have this worthy ally by your side to battle the bitter-cold winter at RGU. Many food outlets such as Costa and Starbucks offer a wide variety of hot drinks. For all the students looking to save money, an alternative to buying hot drinks is to make your own at home and bring it at University. A flask will keep it warm for hours while you are studying and going to lectures. 

 

3. Have a hot meal on campus 

It is generally recommended to have at least one hot meal a day in order to maintain your body temperature at its normal level. You can either buy some hot meals from the several food outlets on campus or you can bring your own and microwave it in one of the available microwaves. For example, you can bring some macaroni and cheese and bask in its gooey gloriousness as you chase away that frightful cold. 

 

4. Bring a hot water bottle 

If you still feel the cold in lecture halls, you could bring your own hot water bottle. A microwaveable hot water bottle is a really great investment as you will easily be allowed to warm it up using one of the microwaves on campus. Using this method, you can go into your lectures rest assured that something will surely heat you up whenever you need. 

 

5. Go for a walk around campus if you have plenty of time 

Even though some students would not like the idea of doing exercise while they have so many other things to do, it is proven that exercise can warm up the human body when practiced. Going for a walk around campus with plenty of layers of clothes on is one way to becoming warmer quickly. It also gives you many other benefits such as reducing stress and giving you some well-needed fresh air.
