About us

We are here to provide convenience to students moving into university for the first time

Meet the Founder

Kostas Baronos

Kostas is currently a medical student at King's College London and has been at Uni for just a little bit over than 5 years. He completely appreciates how exciting yet stressful moving into student halls can be as he has experienced himself!

He still remembers the very first time he moved into his new student accommodation, he spent 3 days straight on an empty bed waiting for his bedding to get shipped. Not an enjoyable experience at all. ​Sleeping on a bare mattress is no way to start university and he wouldn't do it ever again! This is why he came up with the idea of providing all the essentials a student needs when moving in! Such a convenient solution!

Kostas' Team will deliver all your Essentials in your accommodation right on time. You place the online order, we do everything else. NO DELAYS!  NO  EXCUSES!

Meet the Co-Founder

A recent addition to the team with a true passion in customer satisfaction. 

Oliver is currently studying business management at the University of Greenwich and understands the stress of moving into student accommodation for the first time. He thinks moving into halls has to be easy and convenient.

With experience in the publishing, health and IT industries he’s looking to build Student Essentials in order to make moving into accommodation easy for every university student.
