What To Bring

Ideas

Our Pinterest page has some great visual ideas and suggestions for what to bring. You can also see what things are best to leave at home.

Make Your "Home Away From Home"

Bring these items and make it your "home away from home."

  • Bedding: sheets, blankets, pillow, pillowcases, and bedspread. Mattresses are 36” x 80” (Twin XL, longer than a regular twin bed).
  • Towels and toiletries
  • Laundry basket
  • Alarm clock
  • Stereo, radio
  • Computer
  • Wall decor, throw pillows, various decorative items as desired.

(Please do not use anything that may damage the walls to hang décor. We recommend using Command Picture Hanging Strips/Hooks by 3M)

In addition to your personal belongings, you may want to bring the following. Check with your roommates in advance to avoid duplication. You may even want to wait until after you move in and purchase items after consulting each other. The following is a list of possibilities:

  • Small refrigerator
  • Microwave

Please note: If you choose to bring a small refrigerator and/or microwave, make sure that you get one with a long cord as the electrical outlets are inconveniently located and these appliances must be plugged directly into the wall outlet, not into an extension cord or power strip, as per the USU Fire Marshal.

Storage space in all buildings is very limited. Please plan accordingly.
