It’s almost time to move into the Neighborhood! We don’t want you to have to turn back, so we are here to help you know what to pack. Each room is furnished with your own bed, dresser, desk, and chair, but there are a few extra things you might want to bring to make your new room feel like home. We’ve even provided some examples to help make shopping that much easier!
