Suggested shared items to be discussed between roommates before arrival to campus:
There is a microwave available in the Common Area of each Residence Hall for student use. Only one refrigerator (3.6 cubic feet max) and microwave (700 watts max) per room. Carpets and linens are available through On Campus Marketing. Refrigerators (3.6 cubic feet) are available for rental or purchase with information from our authorized vendor. The Office of Housing and Residential Life earns a commission from working with these companies. The money earned is used to fund programs for students in the residence areas.
A Few Small Suggestions:
- Don't take everything you own. Be selective about clothes and leave off-season items behind.
- Pack your belongings in something you can use for storage once you arrive - a storage trunk (which also doubles as a coffee table while storing your boots, bulky sweaters, extra blankets etc.), milk crates and folding crates.
- Maximize your closet space with a few inexpensive products such as tiered hangers, stacking boxes or shelves to get extra levels out of the closet floor and shelf.
- Make use of the space under your bed, which, depending on how you set up your loft-able bed could be as little as 12 inches. Purchase some easy-slide under-the-bed boxes.
- Think of your bed as another place to study. Outfit it properly with a backrest, a lap desk, a clip-on lamp and a kitchen timer, if you are prone to dozing off.
