The apartments have living room furnishings, with a dining table and chairs, a sofa, chairs, an end table, and a coffee table. All of these items must stay in the living room the entire year. They cannot be removed or placed in storage. The apartment has a telephone jack in the living room and each bedroom. Additionally each apartment has a kitchen with a microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, and a stove.

You may not remove or store any item for any reason!

Packing for your move: 

Most students bring too much stuff! Please "pack light" for your first trip to campus. Call your roommate before you come, to coordinate who will bring the largest and heaviest items. Remember that we have easily accessible stores close to campus, so if you forget something, you can get it here! Last, storage in your room is limited to your wardrobe, and under your bed. There are no storage rooms in any of our halls.

You are welcomed to bring your bike, but you cannot easily store it in your room. Bike racks are provided around the residence halls-be sure to bring a strong U-shaped lock (not a cable lock).
