What to Bring - What not to Bring

This page includes the items Crown College provides, the necessities for life in the residence halls, and some bonus items that are nice to have around.

This is list of items that we found many students bring. It is not a complete list, nor is it necessary to have everything on the list. Please understand that it is not necessary to bring everything at once. It is a good idea to wait and see what you really need and what you think you will use before you buy everything on the list.
