What To Bring

What not to bring is equally as important as what to bring. Therefore, students, especially first-year students, are strongly encouraged not to bring everything on move-in day that they think they might need during the course of the year. Alumni & Family Weekend and scheduled holidays provide additional opportunities to bring back personal items.

Students should bring things that will help make the residence halls feel like home, but they shouldn't bring too much! On move-in day there will be many people to help students. To help make this process run smoothly, students must label everything with first and last name, building name, and room number (will be sent to students later in the summer).


Students should pack clothes, and in addition to everyday-wear, should bring:

  • One or two dressy outfits and shoes for more formal affairs
  • Work-out clothes and shoes
  • Bathing suit
