What to Bring and Not Bring
It is a good idea to have a conversation with your room/apartment mate(s) to plan who is bringing what for the room/apartment as space can be limited. A suggested list of what to bring can be found here.
Because of safety concerns, certain items are not permitted in the residence hall. Please review the list of What Not to Bring prior to your arrival. More information about the safety regulations and prohibited items can be found in the University Housing Handbook.
- Students may sign up for one of three meal plan options. Information about meal plan can be found here.
- Monies can be added to your myONECARD prior to your arrival by visiting www.govst.edu/onecard or you may do so at the Cash to Card machine located in the Hall of Governors in the C building. New students will receive a myONECARD when they attend orientation.
