What to Bring to Campus

Some items that you may want to consider bringing with you are:

  • Bed linens (extra long twin-size for residence halls, standard twin-size for houses)
  • Blankets
  • A pillow
  • A desk lamp (halogen lamps not permitted)
  • Towels
  • Toiletries
  • A shower caddy for your bathroom supplies and shower shoes
  • Quarters for laundry (25¢ coins)
  • An umbrella or waterproof jacket
  • Warm clothes
  • Power strip extension with 6 foot cord
  • Wall decor
  • Small throw rugs or an area rug (residence hall rooms are not carpeted)
  • A few microwaveable dishes, coffee mugs, and glasses
  • Hangers
  • Stackable crates or bins for extra storage
  • An alarm clock

Please note: although students are allowed to have small appliances in their rooms (e.g., refrigerators, air popcorn poppers, and microwaves), the appliances must be of low wattage, have no open heating coils, and be in good repair.  The Resident Student Association offers micro/fridge and refrigerator rentals.  A brochure regarding this rental program will be included in the summer housing mailing for new students.
