Suggested Packing List

In mid-August, you will receive your roommate assignment and his or her contact information. You may want to get in touch with your roommate at that time to discuss what you each plan to bring to St. Andrew's, and what you might be able to share rather than bringing unnecessary duplicates. Please be mindful of limited space in shared rooms; less is always better!

All personal belongings and clothing should be labeled with the student's name. Everything on this list can be purchased new in nearby Middletown, at Wal-Mart, Lowes, Kohl's, Marshalls, and other stores in town. Relatively unused school supplies donated by students at the end of the past school year will also be made available to this year's student body, in an effort to reduce our environmental impact. Gently used clothes can also be purchased on campus at the Alumni Clothes Closet; proceeds go to fund our financial aid program.
