Residence Education and Housing Services provides a bed, mattress, dresser, desk, chair, bookshelf, overhead lights and window blinds in all student rooms. Included with your room, at no additional cost, is the weekly exchange of a university-provided linen packet of two white sheets, a pillow case and two towels.

Residence Education and Housing Services can also provide you with a blanket and pillow; if you need them please ask at check-in. For the long-term, we encourage international students to purchase a blanket upon arrival. Students may also purchase carpet and linens for your room from the University Activities Board.
