WHAT WILL ALREADY BE IN YOUR ROOM
- The bed: your room will have a bed frame and a mattress. The mattress is a Twin-XL (80 inches), so make sure you purchase the correct sheets. (It’s a good idea to bring a couple sets of sheets, since washing sheets can be a pain.) Many Roos opt to purchase a mattress topper to make your sleeping experience even more enjoyable. The furniture is modular, so beds can be bunked on top of each other, or lofted on top of your wardrobe and desk (the Welcome Weekend Staff can help you with lofting.) Your room comes with a sink, medicine cabinet, and mirror.
- The wardrobe: You and your roommate will each get an open wardrobe with a hanging rod and a drawer. You should bring hangers to store clothes in your dresser. It is also a good idea to buy some stackable plastic drawers, as all of your clothes will probably not fit in the dresser.
- The desk: Each of you gets a desk and a chair.
WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER BRINGING
SOME FRIENDLY ADVICE
- Bring only what you really need. You’ll find a list of suggested items below.
- Talk to your roommate(s) beforehand and coordinate who is bringing what. It’s best to split up the big things (TV, fridge, rug, etc.)
- You don’t need to bring everything. Many items (especially the bigger ones) can be purchased at stores in the South Bend-Mishawaka area during Welcome Weekend. If you’re tight for space in your car, consider buying a fridge or rug once you get to campus (Amazon Prime works wonders).
