Things 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 to Bring

 Things you should bring...

    Students should only use wireless/cordless telephones that are DEC 6.0 compliant in  residence hall rooms.
