What to Bring

What We Have

All residence hall rooms provide you with an overhead light, desk, desk chair, extra long twin bed and mattress, dresser, and closet or wardrobe. All windows have blinds so drapes are not necessary.

Try to coordinate with your roommate for items like refrigerators, televisions, and microwaves.
