Many students choose to work on their assignments on their own computers and then carry it around on a USB stick so they can continue to work on it it whilst on campus.

Keeping a list of things that you need to do can be a really good way of staying organised and ensuring you don't forget to do anything for your studies.
There are a number of different ways you can do this, but I recommend you take a look at Wunderlist as it allows you to make notes on your computer, tablet and smartphone and will keep all of your lists synchronised across all of your devices - and best of all, it's totally free.
Making notes whilst in a lecture is essential, while there's nothing wrong with using a notepad and pen, you might want to check out Evernote for keeping all of the notes you make organised and searchable.

Why I Love Evernote: The Student Perspective
If you want a system for organising your time and remembering where you need to be (and when!) then you may want to take a look at Google Calendar.
It's a free online calendar service that lets you synchronise all of the lectures, workshops and other events you need to go to across all of your web enabled devices.

For making mind maps I recommend you use a free website called Mind42.com.
It lets you save your mind maps online, so you can edit them on any computer, at home or in university.
You can also collaborate with other people to make mind maps together.
