What to bring to San Jac?

<p>I got into San Jac for the fall (yay!) and I was just wondering about a few things... Should I even bother buying a shower curtain? I looked at pics online and the virtual tour, but it didn't show the shower. Does it come with one already or do i need to go ahead and buy one?</p>

<p>Actually, that was the only thing. haha But if there's any other advice on what/what not to bring, i would greatly appreciate it :) I'm buying some stuff this week, and i don't want to waste my money on stuff i won't need.</p>

<p>Division</a> of Housing and Food Service - What to Bring</p>

<p>If you've already seen that link, I would suggest calling or emailing housing asking them any questions you may have. They usually get back to me pretty fast.</p>

<p>I got san jac too :) congrats! I believe my mom bought a shower curtain for me. Also, if you got a private bathroom (yay :D) you might need to buy cleaning supplies at some point or another. You could always get this later on though. :)</p>

<p>The "what to bring" page says you will need to bring toilet paper and cleaning supplies.</p>

<p>Just out of curiosity when did you get your application in? I have heard it's impossible to get into San Jac unless you get your app in by the end of August. I'm curious to know if this is true.</p>

<p>i paid my $50 housing deposit some time in late november and i still got san jac. but i probably was one of the last ones to get it since i'm on the top floor</p>

<p>^ Top floor is way better, but I think it's randomized anyway for what room you get.</p>

<p>My daughter lives in San Jacinto this year as well as last year. Since san Jac has private bathrooms you have to have your own shower curtain as well as supplies to clean and toilet paper etc, since you clean your own.</p>

<p>Also one good tip we picked up last year is to replace the toilet seat; we got one at WAlmart that has a top---the dorm's seats are only the bottom and things can fall into the toilet you don't want to go and fish them out.</p>

<p>I paid my deposit early early December and I'm on the middle floor. It is supposed to be super hard to get in to San jacinto so I was unbelievably excited!</p>

<p>i turned in my application around early/mid october and i think paid the housing stuff like end december? plus San Jac was my second choice to Roberts... no idea how i got into it. but i'm not complaining :)</p>

<p>I noticed that above posters paid housing deposits in October, November and December. Were you already accepted by UT or is this a strategy to get preferred housing if accepted?</p>

<p>You pay the $50 early to get preferred housing if accepted. I only applied to UT and I was in the top 2% of my graduating class, so I knew I was going there. So I paid really early. Not that it mattered, I didn't go for San Jac or Duren because of cost anyway.</p>

<p>I applied really late for housing because I hadn't really planned to go to UT. I applied around the time that the decision had to be made to choose your school so I was notified that I would be getting a Supplemental space. No assignment was posted on the My Housing page, but today I checked and it finally states that I have a room in San Jac albeit with a community bath. I'm assuming it's a supplemental space there, but I seem to only have one roommate. Are there rooms in San Jac with community baths?</p>

<p>I think you are in either in a small lounge or study room (since there are only two of you) or there are just two of you in a bigger lounge that could hold three or four. Good luck and hang in there; people haven't usually had to stay in supplemental housing for very long.</p>

<p>Shower curtains are usually in the bathroom already.</p>

<p>They're a little smaller than i would like though, and of course, you are free to bring your own. Coordinate with your roommate.</p>
