  • Head phones to enjoy your music

Electronics and Related:
  • EPEAT-certified Computer and flash drive.  A laptop computer is recommended – it takes less space in your dorm and helps provide a mobile work environment.
  • Ethernet cable/TV cable, we provide to the jack in wall
  • EnergyStar Appliances – Wait until you get your roommate assignments to coordinate these!
  • Smart Power Strip – this is one that shuts off power when you aren’t using your electronics

  • Laundry bag and laundry detergent for cold water washing, small dish soap
  • Sewing kit
  • Re-useable coffee/travel mug and water bottle
  • Re-useable bowl/plate and utensils for any in-room eating
  • Closet organizer/hangers/
  • Storage containers. Suggestion from a Student: Pack your clothes in one or two large solid plastic bins. The bins can be used for storage and as a laundry hamper once you get here and you will not have to find space for empty suitcases

Please leave it home – Unpacking any new items from their packing materials and boxes at home will reduce the volume they require in your vehicle and can help to reduce your trips to the recycle dumpster as you move in.  For example, opt for sheets that don’t come in the plastic bags. If everyone brings two new sets of sheets that would be over 1500 un-needed plastic bags requiring disposal.
