The summer of 2018 has moved on and all of a sudden you are defrosting your windshield and trying not to slip in this bitter and icy cold Scottish weather.

University doesn’t wait for anybody so here are some helpful little tips to help keep everyone warm this winter! 

 

Bring out the woollens!

Woolly hats and gloves are something that can be underrated for wearing during the winter, but you will thank us for helping keep your ears and little fingers warm.

Hot drinks (as if the casual university student doesn’t drink coffee on a daily basis!)

Hot drinks are a favourite at Radar - whether you are a coffee worshiper, tea lover or like to indulge in a lovely hot chocolate any will do the trick at warming you up during the blizzardy conditions.  

Hand warmers

These might be a strange thing to buy but they are amazing at heating you up within a few minutes and keep you toasty for a good few hours and if they get too warm or you need to use your hands, put them in your pockets! 

Fluffy socks!

Basically fluffy anything, but fluffy socks are the absolute best! Nothing like wearing them to university (although you might get some weird looks) or better yet putting your feet up after a hard day studying with a cup of tea, fluffy socks and trashy TV. 

Eat hot food

Yes, we would all like to eat chocolate constantly (you still could). Eat some hot food to warm you up ready to take on whatever you need to tackle before the semester is up, whether it be a nice subway, pizza or some lovely soup! 

Invest in some good boots  

Snow boots should be a vital part of your Winter wardrobe, it especially helps in the morning or late at night where the ground is particularly frosty – but when you are out and about extra layers all add up so fur on the inside can really help keep your feet cosy!  

Slippers

Wearing slippers can help keep your feet nice and cosy and with fluffy socks too, you can keep yourself warm and stay on a budget! 

 

With these tips, you will be the cosiest student in RGU. You also now have an excuse to drink lots of hot chocolate! So wrap up, and look after yourself this winter.

Energy price increase set for the UK

Consumer regulator Ofgem has announced that the price cap on energy will increase on 1 April 2021 due to rising wholesale costs and growth in demand.

This means that a typical household on a default energy tariff could expect a bill increase of £96 per year.

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
