What to Bring

Moving away from home can be somewhat scary for some and exciting for others, or maybe a little of both. Roommates should communicate with each other and get an idea of what items both are planning on bringing so as not to duplicate items.

Please remember to bring any medication, toiletries, linens, blankets, pillows, desk lamp, school supplies, alarm clock, trash can, laundry/cleaning supplies, mirror, mattress cover, etc.

Please Do Not Bring...

Electrical appliances that have an exposed burner such as: hot plates, toaster ovens, George Foreman Grills, coffeepots.

No halogen lamps or space heaters. Candles and incense are prohibited.

Furniture, pets, phones, etc...

Beds are not to be stacked or elevated except bunked with the matching bed in the room. Lofts are not permitted. Furnishings are placed in the rooms for the best possible utilization of that particular room.

No furnishings are to be removed from the rooms. Fines will be imposed for moving furniture out of the rooms or trading with another room.

Pets — Pets are not allowed in residential units because of health hazards. The only exception will be fish. Residence hall directors (RDs) and residence hall advisors (RAs) will monitor the care and cleanliness of dorm rooms through regular inspections.

Bicycles — All bicycles should be registered with Public Safety. Bikes should be kept chained to a bike rack (not in dorms or apartments). Bike racks are provided on campus for this purpose.

Parking Permits — You must get a parking permit for any vehicle that is on campus. Permits are $25 per semester. To obtain a car tag permit, please take the following information to the Office of Public Safety (located on the first floor of the L.A. Foster Student Center): year, make, model, and license plate number of the vehicle. Tags must be displayed in all cars on campus.

Health Insurance — All full-time students are required to have health insurance. You must have your insurance card or the name and address of your agent with your policy number. If you do not have proof of insurance, the premium for a policy will be added to your account.
