What To Bring to Campus

You are about to move into a new home on the campus of Saint Peter’s University. Of course you need to bring necessities such as clothing and toiletries, but you’ll also want to bring a few items to help make your stay on campus comfortable and enjoyable.

Here you’ll find helpful information about what to bring to campus, and also what *not* to bring to campus. Be sure to talk to your roommate or roommates, about what they will bring with them. You don’t want to duplicate items with your roommate, that you really only need one of in your room. Our rooms have plenty of space in them, but it is amazing how quickly the space gets filled when you move in!
