What to Bring to Campus

Each student room is furnished with a standard allotment of furniture prior to the student's arrival. Residential Services encourages you to personalize your room, within stated guidelines, so that you and your roommate(s) can make yourselves feel at home. WPI does not have space to store any furniture assigned to a room when residents bring additional furniture to decorate their rooms. The furniture provided in floor and hall lounges is intended for the use of all students and is not to be moved without the permission of the staff.
