What To Bring To Campus

Home Sweet Home

We have found that most students worry about not bringing enough, but end up bringing too much!  Following is a list of things we encourage you to bring as you prepare to move into the Residence Hall.  And keep in mind, if you have a roommate, please talk with that person about items you may be able to share (TV, coffee pot, etc).

  • Sheets (most of our beds are 80" twin beds so bring XL twin sheets!)
  • Pillows and pillow cases

Because you are living in an apartment, you are strongly encouraged to talk with your roommates to see who is bringing what items to the apartment. Please discuss the following to make your new apartment your new home:

  • Kitchen utensils: pots, pans, silverware, dishes, towels
  • TV, DVD, VCR and other living room items
  • Bathroom necessities: rugs, cleaning tools and supplies
  • Decorations for the living room
