Packing for the Big Day
For some people packing is stressful. We want this to be an enjoyable experience and something you will remember. We have gone ahead and made a list of things to pack and what you can leave at home.
|What TO Bring|
Before packing for your adventure to University, take a good look around the house to ponder what things you'll need during your stay in Residence. Your Residence room will be your home away from home so you will want to surround yourself with things that make you feel comfy and cozy. Don’t forget to check out what your house’s spirit colours are to ensure you pack ready for orientation and house activities! A list of those can be found here!
