What to Bring

Beds in all housing units are twin, extra-long. These are not standard twin bed dimensions and proper sized bedding is recommended for purchase.

No linens or pillows are provided.

Some residents also purchase mattress pads or foam toppers.

You may bring many items to decorate your housing unit. When planning out your decor, keep in mind that UAS Housing highly recommends the use of 3M brand Command Hooks & Strips or Sticky Tack for hanging any items on walls. Nails, tacks, screws, or any items that cause damage to paint or place holes in the walls will lead to damage being charged to you after move-out.

Please review the "Decorations and Modifications" policy for more information.

In the apartments, there is a shared kitchen available, but housing does not provide any kitchen appliances, dishes, or utensils; so it’s usually a good idea to bring your own dishes, silverware, pots and pans, and other utensils for cooking. All apartments come with major appliances, including a full-sized refrigerator, stove, and microwave.

Please see Housing Policies for a more comprehensive list of appliances that are permitted or prohibited in housing. 

You may bring weapons to store within Student Housing, although weapons are not allowed within residential units under any circumstances. This includes paintball guns, air soft guns, and BB or pellet guns. We require that residents ask Student Housing professional staff prior to bringing any item onto campus. We offer a secured storage for weapons. Please check our policies for what weapons can be stored in the weapons storage and our weapons storage guidelines.

What Not to Bring

Any appliances with open, exposed heating elements, including single-coil cooking elements, non-enclosed space heaters, pizza ovens, or toaster ovens are not permitted.

While incense and candles are not prohibited within student housing, they may not be burned. You should carefully decide what items to pack and bring to Housing. Jar candles may be used on candle warmers.
