What to Bring to Campus?

Decorating Your Room

We encourage you to decorate your room to reflect your personality and style. Many rooms have bulletin boards or tack strips; we also suggest using fun-tack for hanging things on the walls instead of nails or tacks. Students are not permitted to paint, install carpeting (area rugs are fine), hang wallpaper, or apply contact paper or decals.

  • sheets, pillows, blankets
  • waste basket
  • pictures, posters
  • stereo or iPod
  • computer (running Windows XP or later or Mac OS X,10.4 or later) plus Ethernet cable and original DVDs/CDs that came with your computer
  • cable lock for any laptops
  • personal toiletries and medications
  • cleaning supplies and laundry detergent
  • refrigerators that are less than 3.6 cubic ft. and are energy star rated. Students can contract through our preferred vendor, Microfridge, by visiting their site at www.campusspec.com.
