Advice From Students

  • “Bring an extra set of sheets. Roommates are notorious for spilling stuff on yours late at night.”
  • "Bring food containers and utensils. Don’t be left eating snacks with your fingers.”
  • “Don’t bring all your stuff on the first day. Wait until you get settled to buy just what you need.”
  • “Call your roommate before you arrive to arrange the plans for check in day. Try to arrive at the same time so that no one feels left out.”
  • “Don’t use nails, tacks or screws on the walls. You will have to pay for damages.” 
  • “Make sure you meet your RA when you arrive. She/he will help you when you have questions."
  • “Don’t cut carpet to fit your room! Just bring an area rug."
