What if I forget something:
Every student will be required to stay on campus and quarantine on campus until September 10; trips to Target or off-campus to get forgotten items will be prohibited. You may order items you need online to be delivered to your campus P.O. box.
When move-out does occur, there is storage space for sealed boxes in each residence hall with limited space for carpet storage. Furniture and computers cannot be stored on campus. Bicycles cannot be stored indoors.
Arranging your room and lofting beds:
All of our beds are twin, extra-long size. The mattress is 36″ x 78″. Beds may be lofted, bunked, or stay on the floor. A bed rail is available if the bed is lofted or bunked. Lofting and bunking kits are available (at no charge) during check-in. Rooms have been left in the bed configuration students left them in March — some beds are lofted, some are bunked, and some were left on the ground. Residence life staff will be available to assist students with changes to their bed configurations.
Residence hall kitchens:
Kitchens will be closed this year. If you need to wash dishes, restroom sinks and utility room sinks will be available.
St. Olaf College policy prohibits the following items in residence halls rooms: halogen lamps, candles, microwaves, hot plates or other cooking appliances, outlet expanders or “octopus plugs.” Coffeepots with automatic shut-off are permitted. Keurigs are permitted. Students are not allowed to build lofts or add privacy walls in their rooms.
Can I mail my belongings to campus:
Yes, students are able to ship items to campus. We ask that students wait until as close to move-in as possible to not overwhelm our Post Office. When you are ready to ship, please use the following address:
