Talk to your roommate.

Before moving in, you should get in touch with your roommate. Remember that you cannot fit two of everything in your room, so, BEFORE packing, decide which one of you will bring the larger shared items, such as:

  • Television (and do you want cable TV?)
  • Carpeting
  • Refrigerator (suggested 2.7 cubic feet or smaller)
  • Bulky items (trunks)
  • Window Fan
  • Air Conditioner (if medically approved for more than one resident)
