Northwestern College is pleased to provide excellent resident facilities. All the necessary room furniture (desks, tables, chairs, dressers and beds) is provided. Each room or apartment has its own bathroom and kitchen/kitchenette.
We have the following suggestions of important items for you to bring:
The beds have extra-long mattresses which are 39" x 80." Extra-long fitted bed sheets are definitely preferable. Regular flat sheets will work, but regular twin-size fitted sheets will not fit the beds. You may also want to bring a mattress pad.
- Additional Lighting
Although each room is equipped with overhead lighting, it may be helpful to bring additional lighting such as a floor lamp and/or desk lamp as needed. Due to potential fire hazard, halogen lamps are not permitted unless they are equipped with a wire guard.
- Kitchen Supplies
Dishes, silverware, pots/pans, cooking utensils and appliances such as toasters and microwaves are not provided.
- Cleaning supplies for kitchen, vanity and bathroom
Cleansers, glass cleaner, scrubbing pads, etc are not provided. Please bring only non-abrasive cleaners.
- Clothes hangers, wastebasket, shower curtain, and plastic garbage bags
Northwestern provides each resident with a bed, a desk and a desk chair. If living in an apartment style dorm, a kitchen table and chairs, as well as a couch and some living room furniture is also provided.
Northwestern also provides landline phones in each of its residence rooms; however these phones are unable to make long distance calls. Plan on using a cell phone or some other means to connect with individuals out of the calling area.
We advise you to contact your roommates to determine who will bring larger items such as ironing boards, small appliances, microwaves, etc. to avoid duplication as space is somewhat limited. You do not need to bring a vacuum, as your resident assistant will have one available for you. You can always bring more items to school later as you become aware of needs related to residence life.
