 Planning for a Sweet Suite Life…

For new and returning students alike, remembering to bring everything you need to live comfortably in your dorm or apartment can sometimes feel like the first test of the semester.

We know planning and packing for the big move can be a tough task, so to help you ace move-in day, we put together a list full of stuff that would be useful for students to bring along with them to college.

Though your own list of necessities may vary a bit depending on what’s included in your dorm or apartment, we hope what we included here helps jog your memory about something you may have missed.

Remember, rules vary for every college living situation, so always be sure to double check guidelines before you plan to bring things like coffee makers, TV wall mounts, mini refrigerators, massive stereo systems, or pet alligators.
