What to Bring
Living on campus is more than just having a room located near your classes. From your room, you should emerge prepared to face academic, social, recreational and service challenges of your educational experiences at UNCP. Your room, as a “home,” should contain necessities to get you on your way in the morning and into your studies. It should also be a comfortable place where you can relax and be at ease. The following lists include items you may want to bring to campus. This is a suggested list and you do not have to have all the items. Check with your roommate to see what items they are bringing so you do not duplicate items.
