Packing List

Roommates and computers and dining plans! Oh my!

We know you can’t wait to begin your new life at Virginia Tech. But where to start? There are a number of things you can cross off your to-do list even before you get to campus. Start with the You’re In… Now What checklist. It’s an easy way to keep track of what you’ve done, what you need to do, and what you need to consider before moving to campus.

For most of the things you’ll need, you’re on your own, but there are several items 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).
