Room Furnishings

At the beginning of each term, students will receive a Facilities Superintendent’s dormitory room report listing the furniture that has been provided; the property listed becomes a student’s responsibility. Students must inform the Facilities Superintendent within five days of occupancy if the report contains mistakes. Even when absent from their rooms, students are held responsible for any disorder or damage occurring there.

No University-issued furnishings may be removed from student rooms. If any furnishings are missing from rooms at the end of the year, students will be billed for replacement costs.

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. 


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.


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.
