What To Bring When You Move In

Decoration

If you have posters you want to hang, bring poster hanging putty – look for the blue kind for easier removal (for CIW, Hinman, Mountainview and Apartments) or push pins/thumb tacks (for Dickinson and Newing)

Refrigerators and microwaves

The University contracts a third party for leasing refrigerator and microwave units which are leased on a semester or yearly basis and will be delivered to the room prior to your arrival. For more information, visit the MicroFridge website.

Kitchens

Each of the lower campus community buildings has a kitchen on the first floor that residents may use. The Apartments Communities have full kitchens so cooking utensils are suggested.
