What should I bring?

  • Personal décor to spice up your dorm.
  • Loads of blankets and pillows — to keep you comfy.
  • Bedsheets (Twin XL) and a mattress pad, to ensure a good night’s sleep.
  • Winter clothes. Seriously, Minnesota gets chilly! So grab a parka and some boots.
  • Alarm clock (or alarm clock app — really anything so you aren’t late for class).
  • Cleaning supplies — to keep your place neat and tidy.
  • Clothes hangers — to keep you looking good.
  • Wastebasket.
  • Laundry detergents and baskets.
  • Shower curtain (unless you live in Main).
  • Towels and washcloths.
  • Laptop. (If you don’t have a laptop, computers are available on campus during most business hours.)

What could I bring?

  • Mini-Fridge (4.3 cu.ft. or less) — to keep the energy drinks cold. (Refrigerators are provided in Weldin, Tewinkel, and Faith Village.)
  • Swimwear, to tour Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.
  • Power strip, to plug in all your gadgets.
  • Desk/floor lamp — in case you want a bit more ambiance.
  • Desk supplies (organizer, stapler, scissors, ruler, calculator, pens, etc.).
  • Snacks (just don’t eat them all the first night).
  • Board games and cards, for roommate bonding time.
  • Raincoat and/or umbrella, in case of unexpected precipitation.

What should I NOT bring?

  • Candles, or pretty much anything that has an open flame (we prefer our buildings to not be on fire).
  • Halogen lamps (still don’t want our buildings on fire).
  • Appliances with open heating elements (toasters, hot plates, space heaters, etc. — still don’t want our buildings on fire).
  • Weapons of any kind, including airsoft and paintball gear.
  • Pets, unless it’s a fish (fish are friends, not food).
  • Fireworks of any kind (pretty much anything that explodes).
