There are plenty of websites out there telling you what you absolutely must bring to college, but it's always best to get your information directly from the source!
CU Housing & Dining Services’ Move-in/Move-out web pages have detailed lists to help you know exactly how to prepare for your arrival on campus. These include:
We cover everything from bedding and furniture to appliances and hoverboards. We also provide some great tips on computing and campus Wi-Fi. And while we always support being prepared, keep in mind that it might take you a few days, or even weeks, to settle in and get a really good sense of what you’ll actually need. We don’t want you to spend money on things that end up in a closet or recycling bin before the end of the year. We have shops! The Boulder area has all the major box and department stores stocked with everything a college student may need or want.

Happy packing Buffs, we can’t wait to see you!
