WHAT NOT BRING - What should you leave at home? Most students tell us they brought too much stuff! Do you need 4 towels or will 1 towel do? Can you wait and bring your winter boots and coat after your next trip home? We also provide a lot of things for student use at our front desks like irons and ironing boards, pots and pans, vacuums, games, etc. Be sure to check the Residence Life policies to know what is not allowed as this is not an exhaustive list:
