What to Bring

New for 2017: fitted and flat bed sheets will be provided in extra long twin size, along with a standard pillow case, but other linens will NOT be provided. Linens have become a significant expense. This change allows us to avoid increasing the cost of registration.

You must bring your own:

  • Blankets for sleeping
  • Pillows for sleeping
  • Bath towels for bathing

The following additional items are often forgotten or may make your visit more comfortable:

  • Alarm clock
  • Bath floor mat
  • Clothes for hot, cool, or rainy weather
  • Clothes hangers
  • Cup or mug to carry beverages around
  • Flip-flops for shower
  • Garbage bag (e.g. a plastic grocery bag)
  • Hand towel
  • Hat
  • Keurig K-cups (original style) to use in our machines
  • Laundry soap, softener, and quarters if you wish to use the dorm machines
  • Money for Monday night dinner
  • Nightlight or lamp, flashlight, or book light to keep by the bed
  • Robe or wrap, for using the shared apartment bathrooms
  • Sleep mask, in case of a street light outside your bedroom window
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Sweater or jacket for cold rooms
  • Tissues
  • Toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.)
