Important Dates and Times

Packing List

Print this PDF packing list or save a copy of the Google Doc. Before you go shopping, be sure to talk with your roommate and compare notes. Love to ride your bike? Check out NC State’s convenient and popular bike-share program LimeBike! The new program means you may want to leave your own bike at home to avoid theft or damage. Some items are better shared between roommates like coffee pots, curtains, lounge chairs, area rugs, etc.

Here are some sustainable ideas from our friends at NC State’s Waste Reduction and Recycling department to save you money and room clutter.

Early Move-In

Residents who have been granted permission to move into their fall assignment early should print a temporary parking placard (updates for Fall 2018 will be available in July) to be displayed while unloading. These placards are managed by NC State Transportation. If you have not received early move-in information from your hall or village director, please check the Early Move-In webpage for additional details.
