You are advised to limit your belongings until you have seen the size of your assigned room.

If possible, contact your roommate(s) ahead of time to coordinate what each of you will bring. This can make the move-in process less hectic and time-consuming.

You are responsible for your own property. When leaving your room, you are advised to lock your door and windows. The university is not responsible for loss or damage to your personal property, no matter what the cause. You are strongly urged to ensure that your own insurance policy covers such loss.
