What to and not to bring

RA Advice

We suggest you speak to your roommates before buying everything on the list.  That way you can maximize the space that you have in your room and don’t end up with two of everything.

If you have something and want to know if you can bring it or not, don’t hesitate to call the Campus Living Office at 501-661-1743, we are here to help.
