Room Furnishings

The University provides each student with a:

  • desk
  • chair
  • bureau,
  • bed (extra-long, 80” by 36”)
  • closet or wardrobe

Beds are equipped with mattresses; students should supply their own pillows. Please consult with your college about whether common room furniture and overhead lighting are provided. Halogen lamps are fire hazards and are not permitted.  Since most first-years live in suites in which they share a common room with several roommates, please consult with your roommates over the summer about bringing other room items.  Considering your move-out in November, please pack lightly. 

Laundry

The Associated Student Laundry Agency offers a variety of services.

  • The “Look Sharp” plan is a weekly all-inclusive program that provides students with bulk wash, dry, and fold service, laundering and pressing of shirts, pants, and skirts, and dry cleaning.
  • The “Just the Basics” plan offers a weekly bulk wash, dry, and fold laundry service.
  • Dry cleaning is also available on a piece-by-piece basis.

Students have access to numerous on-campus laundry room facilities as well. During the summer, you will receive more detailed descriptions of these services and an order form for the bulk laundry plans. 

For more information and to select a laundry plan, visit the Associated Student Laundry Agency website.

Linens

Associated Student Agencies offers a full selection of linens for purchase, including sheets designed to fit the extra-long Yale mattresses, coordinating comforters, mattress pads, pillows, and towels. A brochure for ordering linens that includes information about home or campus delivery is mailed to undergraduates during the summer. For more information and online ordering, please visit Residential Hall Linens.

Refrigerators

Yale will be providing a MicroFridge unit for the residential college rooms and suites that currently do not have a unit. These units will be installed in early August and ready to use when you move in.
