What to Pack

  • Since your residence hall room will be home during the academic year, you will want to have all the comforts and supplies you need day-to-day. Listed below are items important to have when you arrive, as well as others not allowed. Remember that your residence hall room is probably not as big as your bedroom at home. So remember, don't bring all of your belongings—they won't all fit. For more information on Move-In and Room information see our Frequently Asked Questions.
