PACKING TIPS

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

1 | PACK LIGHTLY 
Space is limited in housing units and residents will need to be prepared for potential housing changes should the occasion arise. Residents should minimize the amount of personal belongings they bring to campus and only bring what is absolutely needed.
 
2 | MAKE MOVING EASIER
Leave your clothes on the hangers and place them in a large trash bag with a hole cut in the top. Your clothes will 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 and try to consolidate items as much as possible. Keep in mind only ONE vehicle will be allowed at each unloading area and if you are having a hard time making everything fit...you’re bringing too much!!!
 
4 | TALK IT OVER
To avoid bringing duplicate items, check in with your apartment-mate(s) to coordinate the items you’ll be sharing in your room or apartment.
