The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is partnering with the Nevada Wolf Shop to provide you with the linens you will need in the residence halls. Some our beds are longer than the standard size, so please check with your residence hall to verify sizing. We will have linens available when you arrive if you forget or bring the wrong sheets. If you ordered online, you will be able to pick them up on campus.
We have found that new students often bring too much for their room so to help you avoid overspending (and over packing!) we have included a checklist as a reference. Some items are essential, while others are nice to have. One of the most important items to remember is to purchase your linens now.
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is also partnering with Collegiate Concepts, Inc. to help provide students with opportunities to rent MicroFridges (microwaves with Fridges Attached) and Safes for students rooms. Students who order MicroFridges will be able to pick them up from a central Location in the Nye-Canada parking lot during Move-In day. Remember, there is only one mini fridge allowed per room, so please plan in advance with your roommate. Details can be found on the website College Fridge.
Please see our safety flyer for more details on how to protect your property.
Creating a "home" while living on campus makes your residence hall room more pleasant and comfortable. When planning to decorate, we encourage you not to bring furniture from home.
Because they are potential fire hazards, the following appliances are prohibited: hot plates, toasters, toaster ovens, sunlamps or any other appliance with an open heating element. Candles and incense are also prohibited. The Department of Residential Life, Housing and Food Service also prohibits waterbeds and lofts in residence hall rooms.
No pets are allowed in the residence halls, either on a permanent or visitation basis. You may keep goldfish or tropical fish in reasonable numbers, no larger than a ten-gallon tank.
University policy prohibits the possession of any type of firearm, dangerous weapon, bullets, fireworks, or explosive device on campus, including the residence halls.
