What to Bring (And what NOT to bring!)

Moving into a college dorm room for the first time is very exciting, but figuring out what to pack and what to leave at home can be stressful. For more information about what to bring to Lehigh, check out this packing list!

While you are allowed to bring your own refrigerator as long as it is less than 4.6 cubic feet, you are NOT allowed to bring a microwave. However, students are able to rent or purchase a Microfridge for their room. Each Microfridge contains a microwave oven, refrigerator, and freezer. Many students order Microfridges and find them useful; when the cost is split with a roommate, they are very affordable. More information about the Microfridge appliance and instructions on how to order can be found here.



Students are also allowed to bring their own printers; however each student is allotted a yearly printing budget of $75 that can be used at any on-campus location. Grace Hall, Drown Hall, and Rauch Business Center, which are all within a five minute walk of the first year residence halls, each have computer labs and printers that students can use. Many students who bring printers find that it is more convenient to print at the library and end up taking printers home since they take up a lot of space.

Please remember to leave anything with a heating element at home. Prohibited items include hot pots, portable heaters, air conditioners, halogen lamps/bulbs, candles, electric blankets, and lava lamps.

Keurigs are allowed! 



If you have any questions about what you are allowed to bring to Lehigh, please contact Residential Services at inrsd@lehigh.edu or by calling (610) 758-3500.
