It is natural to want to bring all of your prized possessions with you as you settle into your new space but remember to pack light and only bring the essential items you need, initially. Storage will be your closet space and under your bed.
Remember to talk with your roommate in advance of arriving to plan and coordinate possible shared things.
The Department of Residential Facilities recognizes that residents may want to decorate their rooms with posters or pictures. If you choose to do so, you will be responsible for any and all damage to the paint and/or wall. We recommend that residents hang posters or pictures using "blue painter's tape" which is readily available at home improvement stores. Removable poster "putty" is another option.
Despite advertising, products sold as "removable" poster hooks, mounting tape, strips, squares or dots have been found to stain the paint or cause damage to surfaces in the residence halls when they are removed. If you select to use these or similar products, we recommend first applying the blue painter's tape to the wall and then adhering the removable hook or fastener over the tape to protect the wall and paint surface from damage. NEVER use masking tape or duct tape as these leave residue and damage the wall surface.
