Orientation 2014
What to Bring

The following list was developed to help you as you as you prepare for life in Malone's residence halls. It's a good idea to wait until you have moved in and see what you really need before you bring or buy everything on the list.

We also strongly encourage you to talk to your roommate(s) as you determine what to pack or buy. Many items such as a couch, television, refrigerator, etc, can be shared.

Things you should bring...

              Students should only use wireless/cordless telephones that are DEC 6.0 compliant in  residence hall rooms. This is the best and only way to assure that the phone does not interact with the wireless access points that are or will be located in the residence halls. (It should state right on the box they purchase the phone in whether it is DECT 6.0 compliant). It will say this on the box when the student purchases them from the store.

Things you might want to bring...
