What should I bring?

We know you may be afraid of packing way too much or way too little, so we've compiled a basic list of items your student may want to bring with them to their room. But even if you forget something, there are plenty of places nearby to shop for last-minute additions. 

Move-in day

Move-in day for first-year students is Aug. 23. Members of the Transylvania community will help you move everything into the residence hall room. You should have received your move-in time—if not, just contact Residence Life at

New student orientation

New student orientation is an opportunity for you and your student to learn all about what it means to be a Transylvania Pioneer.
