Moving into residence? Here's a starter list of things that you should consider bringing!

  • Clothing (especially in your house colours!)
  • Rain jacket
  • Semi-formal clothing (there are a few events, such as the First-year and Holiday banquet, that you can dress up for!)

  • Shower shoes or flip flops
  • Shower bucket/basket (to keep your shower supplies in one place)
  • Decorations to make your room your own

  • Laundry basket (however you receive a laundry bag in your Orientation Welcome Pack)
  • Cups, dishes and cutlery - plastic is preferred!

  • (Non-wireless) telephone for your room - each room has its own phone line for local calls
  • White board to hang on your door
  • Hangers
  • Brita water filter
