Back to University with Bergo

Back to University with Bergo

Summer is winding down and it's time to start planning for heading to - or back to - university. Before the focus turns to academics there is the exciting matter of setting up your new space. Start with a blank canvas and get ready to infuse it with personality and comfort. Sydney, a second year university student, has curated a collection of essentials for your new home away from home. 


You may find yourself space-challenged in residence or in off-campus housing, so creative storage solutions are a must.
