Things to Leave

Too many clothes
If you haven’t worn it in the past year, you probably won’t wear it here!
Too many knick knacks
If your Magic 8 ball, slinky, and Legos are taking up half your desk, you’ll have a hard time using it to study.
Velcro, double-sided tape, hooks with double-sided tape, etc.
They will damage the walls when removed and may result in charges to fix the damage.
Entire collection of books and movies
Pick a few favorites, and leave the rest.
Furniture
You do not have as much room in your apartment as you may think.
Candles, Oil Lamps, and Incense
They may smell good but they are fire hazards. Consider wickless candles or plug-ins as an alternative to keep your room smelling fresh.
Amplified instruments or drum sets
Be courteous to your neighbors and they will reciprocate.
Appliances with exposed heating coils or wires
This includes space heaters, electric skillets, and toasters. Halogen lamps are prohibited.
BBQ grills, charcoal, lighter fluid, propane
There will not be anywhere for you to use these items in or around the building.
Alcohol
It’s against the rules and regulations to have alcohol at Devier Student Suites regardless of age.
Drugs and drug paraphernalia (i.e. pipes, bongs, hookahs, etc.)
This should go without saying, but moving into your apartment with drugs is a pretty rough way to start out the year. year. You’ll be setting yourself up to focus on things other than academics. Do not sabotage all the work you did to get to college by making a mistake when you first arrive.
Firearms or weapons of any kind
This includes air rifles, paintball guns, knives (over 3 inches in length), swords, BB guns, slingshots, etc.
Pets (i.e. cats, dogs, ferrets, snakes, etc.)
Due to health and safety hazards and sanitation problems, pets are not allowed in the residence halls.
Hard-to-replace paperwork
While you might need things like your birth certificate and your social security card once or twice during your time in school, it’s better to bring it to campus, show it to whoever needs to see it, and then send or bring it back home.
