What to Bring

We recommend that you contact your roommate before purchasing larger shared items for your dorm room.

What you should bring…

  • Residence Hall Linens: Asbury University has extra long mattresses, so you'll want to buy "Twin XL" sheets.  These can be found at most chain stores - Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc.  Also, we have partnered with Residence Hall Linens since 2005. They offer a variety of custom-sized linens guaranteed to fit your residence hall bed and to last until graduation. They also provide many other items that you may want to check out.
  • "Egg Carton" foam pad for bed
  • Storage/Organization bins
  • Wastebasket
  • Shower Caddy
  • Iron (ironing boards are available in the residence halls)
  • Laundry basket, HE laundry detergent
  • Telephone (if you plan to use the on-campus phone system). There is one phone jack per room. The campus phone system includes a private voicemail box for each student. A room phone is a matter of personal choice but is a good idea if you have no cell phone or have limited minutes on your plan.
  • Alarm clock, etc.
  • Power strip/surge protector
  • Sticky Tack for hanging things on the wall - no nails

You may want to bring…

  • Drying rack
  • Television (there is one cable TV jack per room)
  • Lamp (No halogen lamps)
  • Dorm-sized cube refrigerator - one per room permitted - 2.0 cubic feet, 2.0 amps.  There may be slight differences in the cubic feet, but the limit on amps is 2.0
  • Personal Computer/Laptop - click here for helpful tips from our Information Technology Services office.

What you should NOT bring...
