What To Bring to Campus

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

Clothes

In addition to what you normally would wear every day, here are a few clothing items to bring:

  • One or two dressy outfits and shoes for more formal affairs
  • Work-out clothes and shoes
  • Bathing suit
  • Light jacket
  • Rain gear
  • Winter coat and accessories (for the cold winter months)

Room

Students should consult with their roommate(s) about who is bringing what. Rooms will not accommodate multiple TVs, stereos, or other large items. The following is a list of suggested, not required, items.

  • Comforter/bedspread
  • Pillow
  • Bed linens for an extra long twin bed
  • Clothes hangers
  • Drinking glass/mug, a few dishes/bowls, and utensils
  • Poster putty for hanging up decorations
  • Plastic containers with tight lids for storing snacks, detergent, etc. under beds or on top of wardrobe/closet (stackable containers are also good)
  • Headphones (so your music does not bother others)
  • UL-approved power strip
  • Desk lamp or bed lamp
  • Small TV and Roku device (Philo Edu replaces legacy coax cable connections)
  • Fan
  • Hair dryer
  • Alarm clock
  • Paper towels, tissues, and a few cleaning supplies
  • Sewing kit, scissors, safety pins
  • Message board for your door

Personal Care

Students will be sharing bathrooms and laundry facilities with other students.

  • Bathrobe
  • Shower shoes
  • Towels and washcloths
  • Soap and/or body wash
  • Shampoo
  • Shaving cream and razors
  • Small bucket for carrying shower things
  • Facial tissues
  • Laundry basket/bag
  • Laundry detergent
  • Dryer sheets
  • Dishwashing detergent
  • Band-Aids

Medicine

For School

Good Things to Have

Think about your daily activities and hobbies and bring what you need.

  • Access to money (i.e., bank account, bank card, credit card, etc.)
  • Umbrella
  • Key ring
  • Camera
  • Batteries
  • Flashlight
  • Sports/recreation equipment (also available for check-out at the RecPlex)
  • Snacks for your room

What Not to Bring

The following items are not permitted in the residence halls and several are not permitted in the townhouses or apartments. Unapproved items will be confiscated and result in a discussion with Residence Life staff. Repeat offenses will result in referral for student conduct review and action. Questions about specific items should be directed to the Office of Residence Life. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive.

  • Halogen bulbs and/or lamps
  • Hotplates
  • Toasters
  • Toaster ovens
  • Electric frying pans
  • "George Foreman" or similar-type grills
  • Microwave ovens and refrigerators (only the University-issued micro-fridge is permitted)
  • Air conditioners
  • Mercury thermometers
  • Candles
  • Pets (other than fish in a container no more than 10 gallons)
  • Water beds
  • Smoke machines or fog machine
  • Routers, Switches, and Wireless Printers: The entire campus has wireless access. Wi-Fi enabled printers will not work wirelessly on campus, but will still work when attached via a USB cable.
