What to Bring

What to Bring…or not Bring…to Your New Home at Jefferson

Your room is furnished with an extra-long twin bed, desk and chair, wardrobe, and dresser. Space is limited so we recommend that you bring only what is necessary now and adjust accordingly later. To avoid duplication, you may want to coordinate with your new suitemates for some items such as TVs and cables, DVDs, area rugs (where applicable), printers, etc.

Cooking in your room or suite is restricted to coffee pots, espresso machines and toasters. All suites will have small microwave ovens and full size refrigerators for student use. All authorized items must be used on a non-combustible surface and be UL approved.
