What to bring with me to college

TrashceptionTrashception 152 replies2 threadsRegistered User Junior Member
I am leaving for college in July to do summer classes before Fall semester starts, and I am trying to plan what to bring with me. I will be living in a dorm over the summer but in a Cal affiliated apartment once the Fall semester starts.
Should I bring all the apartment stuff with me for the summer? I will be sharing a room over the summer but have my own room in the fall.

At this point, I can't think of anything else to bring with me besides clothes, tech stuff, and toiletries. Any Suggestions?

p.s. My dorm comes with a mini fridge and a microwave.

    How far do you live from your school? That would definitely factor into this!

    I live in SD and Berkeley is in NorCal. It is like an 8-hour drive I think? I would probably be flying to see my parent during the holidays.

    Thanks for the info. If you won't be going home again before school starts, then take your stuff with you now. Experience has definitely shown people in my family that there's a tendency to over pack or take things that you don't end up using much. Pack light now and by the end of the summer you'll have a sense of what you still need. You can order items from Amazon or Bed Bath & Beyond then. IF your stuff won't fit in the dorm room for the summer, and $$ isn't a big issue, you can rent the smallest storage space available at a local self-storage place.

    I would say take the minimum you think you need...you can always order stuff as you need it.
