Spring Admitted Students

What to Bring

Trying to decide whether to bring the bed you have been sleeping in for the past 18 years? Or what about that night light that you won’t admit to still using?   Don’t worry, each residence hall room includes the necessary furniture, though there are some well-loved items from home that you might still want to bring with you.  

Remember, you will likely be sharing your space with at least one other student, so before you shop-til-you-drop, we suggest that you contact your new roommate and discuss what items you will share, such as TVs, game consoles, or refrigerators.
