WHAT TO BRING TO COLLEGE header_icon


All of the Point Living Community apartments will come with a bed, desk, dresser and desk chair for each student. The apartments do have additional living space, dining space and a kitchen that can be furnished however you choose (for example, some students plan to use the dining room as a bedroom or study space). The kitchen comes with a refrigerator, stove and dishwasher.

The following is a list of items you may need for the residence hall. It is also available in a printable checklist format. You will want to be comfortable in your residence hall room, but storage space is limited… so don’t bring everything you own! Also, remember to check with your roommate over the summer to eliminate duplication, such as ending up with two TVs and no couch.

Please feel free to contact Student Life with further questions about what is allowed in apartments and what you may need to bring!
