Review our Items to Bring page for checklists of items you can and cannot bring to your room.
Most students bring too much stuff. The best advice we've heard is to set out everything you want to bring, then pack and bring one-half the total.
Make sure you arrive before your deliveries do, then please claim them the same day they arrive. Belongings and online purchases shipped by a recognized carrier (USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL) must arrive at your check-in desk only after you have arrived for move-in, due to limited holding space.
Share your mailing address and phone number with family and friends. Mail should be addressed to you in the following manner:
