About Your Room

Ask your roommate how you can collaborate to furnish your shared space.

Making Your Room Your Home

You're probably looking forward to creating "your own space" and giving your room personality.

First thing you should know is that most students come with too much; very few come with too little!

Your room already comes with a bed, dresser or built-in storage, limited closet space, desk and chair. Each room is wired for the Internet. Most students in multiple rooms share closets.

What to Bring

Consult our handy checklist - "What to Bring" - to help you get started on making your room your home. We heartily recommend talking with your roommates to see where you might collaborate on furnishings and appliances like carpets and microwaves.


Our Frequently Asked Questions provide answers about computers, pets, telephone service, getting your mail and packages and more.
