When you arrive at Cortland, your room will have an extra-long twin bed, dresser, desk, desk chair, floor lamp, recycle bin and a closet/armoire; it's what you and your roommate(s) bring that makes it feel like home. There is no storage space available, so everything needs to fit into the room.
You will receive a Room Condition Report (RCR) upon checking into your residence hall room. This is your opportunity to thoroughly inspect your room and furnishings. It is extremely important that you indicate existing damage, marks, etc. on this report because any alterations, changes and/or damages to the room found after the RCR is signed may be billable to you. This form is used as the base-line for future damage billing.
For your convenience, we have created a suggested shopping list (PDF) for you to print and use while you go shopping for your room.
It's a good idea to contact your roommate(s) before coming to school to coordinate who is going to bring what.
