What to bring when you live at Marian University

What Should I Pack?

Here is a list of items to bring with you and items to leave at home. When you receive your roommate's contact information, it's a good idea to connect with your roommate so you can discuss what each of you plan to bring to campus.

Painters tape and 3M products are the preferred products to use to hang items in your room. Any damage caused to walls will incur a monetary fine based on the extent of the damage.
