What to Bring

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.

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.
