Packing Suggestions

  • Reach out and coordinate with your future roommate(s) to decide which items you can share the cost of maintaining, such as a TV, fans, refrigerator or rug. This can help save space that would otherwise be occupied by unnecessary bulky items.
  • To maximize space in your vehicle, we advise loading larger items, such as suitcases or plastic bins, into the car first and then packing smaller items around them (just make sure you can see out of your back windows).
  • Make sure the items you are bringing to campus are not prohibited. Reach out to Residential Life if you have any questions.
