What to Bring

The following items will be useful to you as you move into your residence hall:

  • Tarp(s) - These will be useful in the rain to unload belongings into the dorm and to protect them during drop off.
  • Hand truck - Leitch and Bourgeois Hall do not have elevators.
  • A Move-in Team - Three people: 1 driver, 1 helper and you.  Once you have unloaded your belongings, your driver will drive to the designated parking area, while you check in and your helper stays with your belongings. After you have checked in, you, your helper and the driver will move your belongings to your room.  If you need assistance moving in there will be student and staff volunteers available to help.

Live at East Meadow Lane? The bedrooms and living room do not have overhead lighting, so be sure to bring a floor/desk lamp with you, as well!
