The Ultimate Packing List

UNH Today: Campus Life Articles

The countdown is on, and move-in day is fast-approaching. As the days of summer dwindle, surely that pile of items to bring to college grows. I can recall this time two years ago, just before my freshman year at UNH, feeling overwhelmed by that pile and how much I thought had to bring to my new space at once. All the while, I was feeling as if I was forgetting key pieces in the process. To help reduce packing-induced stress for you, I’ve compiled a list of items to have in your dorm room based on my own list and that of UNH Housing. Absolutely essential items to get you started this semester are bolded. Print this page to use it as a checklist!Bedding
