September is up ahead and universities are revving up for back-to-school promotions. Put together a set of custom promotional university swag essentials for incoming college freshmen and returning students to welcome the academic year.
Custom school merch and welcome kits should not only promote the university or college, but it should help students transition to dorm life, especially if they’re far from home.
2019 trends for promotional products indicate that tech and eco-friendly items are two of the most preferred swag categories.
On that tangent, we’ve put together a dozen promotional swag to help students with university life:
Hoodies are the unofficial university uniform. These Hanes hoodies can be decorated with a screen print of your school logo on the chest. This no-shrink vintage-washed style hoodie is sure to be their new favorite for year-round coziness. Features matching twill drawcord, jersey-lined hood, kangaroo pocket and 100% ring spun face for optimal embellishment.
Drawstring backpacks are perfect for everyday use around campus. If you’re traveling light, then this promotional sport sack is for you. Your logo placement gets your university branding full mileage. Great for hikes and trips to the gum too! More high-quality drawstring backpacks here.
Laptops have become mandatory for campus life so this durable, fashionable, and techie laptop backpack from Timbuk2 is a premium promotional swag option. Embroider your university logo on the front pocket. Check out more Tumbuk2 laptop bags here.
These high-quality, eco-friendly vacuum bottles from well-known brand Corkcicle keeps drinks hot/cold for hours! Crafted from stainless steel with proprietary triple insulation. Patented easy-grip flat sides. No-slip bottom. Choose from 4 other styles and laser engrave your logo on the center of the bottle.
Miir is a drinkware brand that has a giving back project (much like Brand Spirit) that comes with their products. It’s another eco-friendly promotional item for your consideration. Add your logo on an original Miir Travel Tumbler for premium promo gifting for your university or college. Available in black and white. Check out more Miir drinkware options here.

Add up to two colors on the carrying case.
Wireless earpods are a big tech trend and it has reached the shores of promotional products and merchandise. Now your school can have its own branded wireless earpod with zip case.

Like we said, tech is a big trend for this year. This is right on that lane. This promotional swag is a travel-friendly cable for all their charging and connectivity needs. The MFi Certified 3-in-1 with Type C Cable comes in an EVA molded carrying case where your logo is imprinted. The cable includes a MFI Certified Lightning Tip, a Micro USB Tip and a Type C tip.

College life also means doing your own laundry (or maybe taking it back home for the weekend), which makes this promotional school gift quite thoughtful and appropriate for college kids. Add your logo on the cloth band that goes across the drawstring laundry bag.
