Packing List

Hokie, Hokie, Hokie, Hi!

You’ll hear that phrase a lot at summer orientation. Have you signed up yet? If not, now is the time. First-Year Orientation offers 13 sessions over a four-week period in July (the weeks of July 10, 17, 24, and 31). Your specific orientation session is based on your academic major, so you may have fewer than 13 session dates from which to choose. Registration is open so don’t delay. It’s time to get your gobble on!

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).
