What to Bring to Campus!!

What is provided within each room...

Housing will provide each resident with basic furnishings: mobile drawer unit (wire baskets), drafting table, stool, desk lamp, bed frame (most of the beds are bunk beds), and a mattress.

What should I bring to campus?

Extra Long (XL) sheets and comforters (most beds are XL), towels, pillows, toiletry items, alarm clock, hangers, pillows, hair dryer, laundry basket, laundry detergent, toilet paper, umbrella, first-aid items, flashlight, kitchen utensils and cookware if living in one of our apartment buildings, shower curtain, and school supplies. Please be mindful that there is limited space to store items and clothing within each room, so please be mindful of what you decide to bring with you for the Fall semester. You can always reassess your needs once you go home for Winter Intersession and bring additional items, if needed, once you return to campus housing for the Spring 2013 semester.

What should I NOT bring to campus?

Toasters, toaster ovens, hot plates, coffee makers, extra refrigerators (only one per room and no bigger than 2.6 cubic ft), microwaves (apartments are permitted to have microwaves), George Forman Grills, halogen lamps, incense or candles or other open flame items, alcohol, drugs or drug paraphernalia, weapons, pets (including all reptiles and fish), large stereo equipment or large speakers, furniture (including futons, bean bag chairs, bookshelves, chairs, sofa/loveseat). Also remember that PETS of any kind are not permitted within the residence halls.

Can I bring a vehicle to campus?

The Housing Department highly recommends that you do not bring a vehicle to San Francisco. There is no parking available in any housing facility or anywhere on-campus. Academy shuttles provide free, convenient transportation between housing and academic buildings. Additionally, you do not need a car when you live in San Francisco; the city has one of the best and most efficient transportation systems in the U.S. For more information on public transportation in San Francisco, visit www.511.org.

Equipment Registration

This will allow Campus safety to identify the owner of these items if they are ever lost or stolen. Forms will be available from a housing staff member during move-
