It's always a good idea to plan what you're bringing to campus with you. Good news! We've created a packing list for you! Be sure to check out the full list of items not allowed in on-campus housing here.

Sample Move-In Packing List

Pre-Arrival Shipping Information

Please note that students can begin mailing packages to campus one week prior to their move-in date. Most residence hall mailrooms are closed over Winter Break and are unable to process mail and packages, so items may be lost if mailed too far in advance. Packages that are mailed too early will be returned to sender. We highly encourage you to wait to mail any furniture or large items until after you arrive on campus and settle into your space.

Looking for your mailing address? Address formats are posted on our Desk & Mail Services page. Information on setting up your package locker system account will be shared via email prior to your move-in date.

2021-2022 Student Housing Guide

The Student Housing Guide is a great resource for all students preparing to move on campus. It contains great information about our policies, transportation options for residents, information about meal plans, mail and packages, and more! Be sure to review this document prior to moving in this fall!
