What if I forget something:
It is normal for students and/or families to make a trip to the Northfield Target if you have forgotten something. Many students also order items online to be delivered to campus.
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. Residence life staff will be available to assist students with changes to their bed configurations.
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:
1500 St. Olaf Ave.
