What to Bring
No one residence hall is the same as another, so before you buy new stuff and pack up to head to UWRF, talk to your roommate so you can avoid doubling up on items.
- School supplies and backpack
- Driver's license
- Cell phone and charger (as we do not have land line phones)
- Insurance information
- Alarm clock
- Coaxial cable for television
- Carpet (unless you are in Johnson, Ames, or South Fork Suites which have carpeting in the rooms)
- Message board
- Shower sandals
- Blanket/comforter and sheets (XL-twin size)*
- Clothes hangers
- Laundry basket/bag and laundry detergent
- Dish soap, plates, silverware, glasses
- Permitted appliances (clock, radio, entertainment system, computer system, hair dryer, curling iron, shaver, coffeemaker, popcorn popper, heating pad, electric blanket)**
*Specially sized sheets, blankets, and comforters are needed for the extra-long mattresses in the residence halls. The UWRF Residence Hall Linen and Bedding Program provides a huge collection of custom-sized linens that are guaranteed to fit.
**If you are unsure whether or not an appliance is allowed, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
