What should I bring?
Here's a suggested packing list to help you consider which items you'll need to bring with you to KU and a list of items that are prohibited.
What about furniture?
All Student Housing rooms come furnished with the basics, such as a bed, desk, chair, and dresser. Learn more about the specifics of your room, including mattress size and whether beds are lofted or bunked.
*For most residents in 2021, move-in day was August 20. However, scholarship hall residents, or residents who have gone through the process to be approved for early move in, may arrive earlier. Find your move-in arrival time in the instructions.

Move-in day is full of excitement (and typically a little hot Kansas weather). A small army of volunteers called JaySquad help cart new residents' belongings to their rooms. Students eagerly anticipate the coming school year and friends and family take photos at every turn.
