What to Bring - What Not to Bring

What to Bring  

Rooms are furnished with a bed, desk and desk chair, and storage space for each resident. Residents need to bring their own towels, pillows, linens to fit an extra long twin bed (36" x 80"), and a non-halogen desk lamp. Students also provide their own soap, shampoo, etc. and laundry supplies. Residents may also wish to bring a stereo, television, clock, fan, computer, printer, power strip/surge protector and a mini-vacuum.

  • halogen lamps
  • coffee makers
  • hot water dispensers
  • toasters
  • toaster ovens
  • freestanding microwaves*
  • an appliance with open coils
