Suggested Items to Bring
Packing for your campus apartment / room can be a lot of fun, but be mindful not to pack too much. There is limited space in the residence halls and there is no extra storage available outside of your assigned space. To conserve space, it is a good idea to consider sharing larger items with your roommates. You should contact your roommates prior to coming to campus, so that you can agree upon the items that each of you will be responsible for bringing. Once you get to campus and decide you need something else, there are many stores located near campus.
When creating your packing list, please keep in mind the amenities that are included in the apartments.
Each resident receives a bed, desk, desk chair, and dresser. Some rooms will provide a wardrobe based on room layout. All furnishings must stay in your room all year. You may not remove or store any item for any reason. Individual telephone extensions are available in the bedrooms at an additional fee.
Each kitchen in the Commons is equipped with a refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, microwave, and stove. The Lofts has these same appliances except the microwave.
Each living area in the Commons or Lofts is furnished with a couch, chairs, and coffee table. There is a telephone jack in the living room that is shared by the apartment.
Each dining area in the Commons or Lofts is furnished with a table and chairs.

Items to Consider Sharing with Your Roommates:
Note: Personal appliances that are used for cooking may only be used in the kitchen. No open flame device is allowed in the residence halls. Appliances that generate high temperatures such as George Foreman grills and deep fat fryers should be used near the stove top with the exhaust hoods on.
Individual health and air quality requirements vary greatly between students. Students should plan to bring small portable units (dehumidifiers, humidifiers, air purifiers, fans, etc) that will help them meet their personal comfort.
