What Should I Bring?

Every student in campus housing is provided with a bed, mattress, desk, chair, and set of drawers. Depending upon the living area, the set of drawers may be built-in or free-standing. It is important to note that most of the university’s beds are 36 x 80 inches long (twin XL). We recommend that you bring twin extra-long bedding.

Your room may look a bit bare at first, so you may want to bring some items to make it feel more like home. When considering what to bring, please remember two basic rules:

  • Read the housing policies to see what you can and cannot do when considering “decorating” your room. There are also items you cannot bring, which are outlined there as well.
  • You will be sharing space with another person(s). Contact your roommate(s) and discuss what you each plan to bring. Don’t show up with two or three of everything!
