Whatever you bring, you carry in two checked luggage bags and one carry-on bag. Be prepared to move your luggage through airports, on and off busses during orientation, and up several flights of stairs to your room. Here are some tips:
The Leave Half Behind Rule
– Select what you think you’ll need and leave half of it behind. Nobody ever complains about having too little luggage.
– with such a changeable climate layer your clothes from warm to cold so you can change them up easily. Include a rain jacket.
Use Duffel Bags
- with wheels or an internal framed backpack. Closet space will not be as generous as what you are used to, so even if you can get it there, you won't necessarily know where to put it.
Be versatile -
Student rooms are normally equipped with only a foot and a half of hanging space and two, three-foot bureau drawers or the equivalent shelf space, and emptied luggage is usually stored under beds. Go for multi-purpose clothing.
