Packing for Move-In Day

Residence Hall Packing List

Here are some helpful hints about what to bring for your room. Plan with your roommate so that you can share some of the items like dishes, etc.

  • Bedding: Extra-long twin sheets, comforter, blankets, pillows, and pillow cases
  • Bath: Towels and washcloths, shower caddy, bath accessories, soap, razor, shampoo, and shower shoes/flip flops
  • Kitchenette (in suite-style units): Microwave, dishes, utensils, glassware, dish towels, and cleaning supplies (e.g., sponges and dish detergent)
  • Laundry: Iron and ironing board, drying rack, laundry bag/basket, detergent, bleach, and fabric softener (No need to bring quarters because laundry is free in University residence halls!)
  • School: Computer, printer and supplies, back pack/bag, pens, pencils, highlighters, scissors, tape, stapler, and a calculator
  • Organization: Closet and desk organizers, storage crates/trunk, shoe rack, and under bed storage bins
  • Telephone: All resident rooms have an opt–in voice service. Each resident has a private mailbox. This service is not automatically activated; to do so, contact Information Technology.
