Space is always at a premium in the residence halls! Bringing two or four of the same items takes up space and is usually not necessary if roommates are working together before they arrive. Encourage your student to talk with their roommate(s) now about microwaves, TVs, mini fridges and other items that can be shared (and the cost reduced)!

Bringing an entire wardrobe is not recommended! Save space and leave room for new things you may acquire. Students can use breaks to cycle out unneeded clothing and footwear and bring back things they will need as the weather changes.

All necessary furniture is provided and meets fire resistant standards for a residence hall. No personal furniture will be allowed into college owned housing. Please leave futons, desk chairs and all other furniture at home!

Other prohibited items include: halogen lamps, extension cords (outlet strips are permitted), candles, incense, electric holiday lights, and open coils of any kind!
