We recommend that you contact your roommate before purchasing larger shared items for your residence hall 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, high efficiency laundry detergent
  • Alarm clock, etc.
  • Power strip/surge protector
  • Sticky Tack or Command Strips for hanging things on the wall – no nails

  • Smart TV (internet connections are available; no cable TV service is provided)
