PACKING TIPS

Below are some packing tips to make the move-in process easier and more sustainable.

1 | PACK LIGHTLY 
Bring only what you absolutely need. Given the current health crisis, residents will need to be prepared for potential housing changes and should minimize the amount of personal belongings they bring to campus. 
 
2 | MAKE IT EASIER
Leave your clothes on the hangers and place them in a large trash bag with a hole cut in the top. They’ll be easy to place in your vehicle and easy to hang up when you arrive.
 
3 | BE SUSTAINABLE 
Pack in reusable storage containers to reduce waste. Only ONE vehicle will be allowed at each unloading area, so try to consolidate items as much as possible. Keep in mind that if you are having a hard time making everything fit, then you’re bringing too much. 
 
4 | TALK IT OVER
To avoid bringing duplicate items, check in with your apartment-mate(s) to coordinate items that will be shared in your room or apartment.
