What to Bring

The Residence Hall Association are 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 College Fridge website.

Even though residence hall rooms are furnished comfortably, most students choose to personalize their rooms with items from home. However, most students bring too many items with them. To print out a check list of some items you may want to bring with you, see our checklist.

Please see our safety flyer for more details on how to protect your property.

What Not to Bring

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.

Still Cramped?

  • Go as vertical as possible with stackable bins and carts with clear drawers so it's easy to locate items.
  • Use stackable clear-plastic bins to make closet organization simple. A variety of sizes exist to best meet your needs.
  • Keep toiletries organized on the shelving provided in each room.
  • Consider multifunction items as much as possible - such as a combination light/clock or TV/DVD unit or refrigerator.
