A possible room configuration.

A possible room configuration.

Most of the rooms New Students will be in are doubles-- one room with two beds-- in the Brown Tower, with communal bathrooms for men and women on each floor. Each double will be furnished with:

  • 2 bed frames and mattresses

  • 2 desks

  • 2 desk drawers

  • 2 chairs

  • 2, 3-drawer dressers

  • 2 closets

  • 2 trash cans (bags provided)

  • 1 recycling bin (bags provided)

  • 1 vanity

In the O-Week book, on page 49, you will find a suggested list of items to bring to furnish your room, but make sure to communicate with your roommate first so you don’t accidentally bring 2 fridges, 2 TVs, etc.!
