You really don't need to bring everything you own.
Don't over-pack; Mom and Dad can always ship "care packages" to you!
Consult with your roommate(s) ahead of time so you don't bring duplicate items (for example: TV, fridge, rugs, large furniture)
You can buy things in Sioux City - There is no need to panic if you forget something.

These residence hall rooms have the new style lofted beds that are extra long (36”x 80”): Roadman Hall rooms 30-41, 130-142, 230-246, and 330-349, Dimmitt Hall, Poppen Hall, Waitt Hall, Lags Hall, or Garretson Houses. Although not all rooms have extra-long beds, most upper-class housing options do.

All traditional residence halls provide:
Items to discuss with your roommate
- Small fridge (6.0 cubic feet or less)

Can be brought for use in student's rooms, no larger than 6.0 cubic ft. A main refrigerator is provided in the kitchen area of each residence building.
Students are encouraged to have renter's insurance policies to cover the replacement value of possessions. Morningside College does not carry insurance to cover residents’ belongings, such as clothing, notebook computers, computers, TVs, and other valuable personal possessions. In the event of loss or theft, a student will be responsible for the replacement costs. In some cases, your parent's home owner's insurance may cover your personal items, contact your insurance company for confirmation prior to move in.
There are NO areas for storage of personal items, furniture, boxes, or bicycles during the school year or the summer months. There are storage units available for rent in Sioux City. Check local listings once you get to campus.
