What to Bring with You in the Fall!

LESS is better. Remember that roommates also bring belongings, so discuss some of the items you would like to have in the room and who will be responsible for bringing them when you get your roommate assignments at the end of July. Also, it may be more practical to purchase some items locally instead of hauling them all the way from home. The following is a list of useful items!

Wilmington College partners with the Residence Hall Linen Program to offer bedding for our XL mattresses considered to be more than 76 inches in length.  All of our standard mattresses are 80 inches in length going up to 84 inches per special request.  For more information about the linen program, please click the link below:
