What To Bring


Check out your pre-college checklist!


A few tips to consider as you start preparing for your move into your new home:

  • Rooms are fully furnished (bed, chair, desk, closet) and come equipped with high speed Internet connections per bed and basic extended cable per room
  • Be creative with space planning (ex. double hangers, stackable storage bins, etc. can help maximize space)
