What should I bring? This is the question facing every resident student. A limited amount of dorm space, shared with one or more people, requires some planning and preparation when packing. We provide a desk, chair, dresser, twin size mattress, twin size bed, and a closet or wardrobe for every resident. These items are considered your “personal space” and will fill up quickly. Hint: check with your roommate to see if they are bringing items you can share.
A good rule to follow is to only bring the clothes that are appropriate for the season. You can take items home at fall break, and bring back your winter clothes. Do the same in the spring semester with spring break.
A complete list of all housing regulations can be found in the LBC Student Handbook.
Your stay as a resident student will provide some wonderful friendships and memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life. With some simple planning, you can help ensure that your dorm room will be a great place to live.
Note that NOT ALL items are necessary for dorm life. Toilet paper & cleaning supplies are supplied in each dorm. PLEASE NOTE: This is only a suggested list.
