For most of the things you’ll need, you’re on your own, but there are several items that you can get from university-approved vendor partners. Things like microfridges, safes, hutches, closet organizers, carpets, linens, and storage services are all available for purchase.

Make sure you plan out who is bringing the big things with your roommate. There’s no need for two microwaves…unless you both have an unquenchable desire for Easy Mac at the exact same time. Unfortunately, in that case, you’re out of luck. Check out the fire and safety regulations before you start packing (teaser: you can only have one microwave in a room).
