    What kinds of "things" will you be needing?

    When in doubt, go to Target (brick and mortar Targets are pretty much everywhere...)

    Think of moving into a dorm-room like living in a small, low-rent motel for a very, VERY long time; because that is very much what it WILL be like doing.

    I can't give you a list of things you'll need because I don't know what you'll be bringing or what your dorm will allow.

    Simply put, if Target doesn't have it, you probably don't need it.

    Things you will probably need to buy (unless you bring them with you):
    • Sheets/bed linens
    • Pillow
    • Towels
    • Hangers for any clothes you would like to hang in the closet


    After that...the list is really up to what you want to have in your dorm room. You'll likely be purchasing a meal plan for the dining halls, so you shouldn't need any cooking equipment, although some dorms do have small communal kitchens. You may want to have a small refridgerator or microwave in your room for snacks and such, but you can talk about the purchase of this with your roommate if you have one.

    You'll know what you need as soon as you get to your dorm. Nothing really to plan out. Just relax and enjoy your stay in the States.
