Make Yourself at Home

We like to think of living on our campus as taking an extended vacation at a world-class resort. Students not only get to live comfortably in our modern residence halls (many of which feature suite-style layouts) but also get to benefit from the many amenities available on campus.

On-Campus Living

Each residence hall is gender-specific, includes Wi-Fi and comes furnished with a bed, dresser and desk with a chair. There are also cable and phone outlets, and students are allowed to bring small appliances such as mini-refrigerators and microwaves. Residence halls also have many common areas for students, including study lounges and courtyards.

New in 2020

All SEU community members and visitors are required to wear masks when physical distancing is not possible (at least 6 feet), particularly when indoors.

When moving in, all students will receive a “welcome package” that will include a face mask, a thermometer, and other items to assist in promoting a healthy community and individual responsibility. Please also plan to bring your own washable, reusable face masks so that you’ll always have extras on-hand. (Visit our Back to SEU page for all of our precautions and plans for promoting a healthy campus.)


Dorm necessities

While your individual needs may vary, here’s a good list of necessities to get you started.

  • Bed linens such as blanket, bedspread, pillow, mattress pad and sheets*
  • Towels and washcloths
  • Toiletries/medications
  • Clothes, shoes, and hangers
  • Laundry supplies (such as a laundry basket or bag, detergent and dryer sheets)
  • School supplies
  • Day-to-day necessities such as an umbrella, sunglasses and a flashlight
  • Mini-refrigerator; 4 cubic feet or less (approximately 20”x 20”)**
  • Small microwave**

*The twin beds in our dorms are extra-long, measuring 80 inches in length. Many home goods stores and websites such as Our Campus Market sell this size bedding.

** Tip: Coordinate these purchases with your roommate(s) to save space and money.

Suggested extras

While not necessary, you might consider these items to help you feel more at home.

  • Bedside or desk lamp
  • Pictures or wall art
  • Bulletin board/dry erase board
  • Snacks
  • Organizing bins
  • Coffeemaker
  • Television
  • Bathrobe
  • Curtains

(Just remember you can’t use anything permanent or damaging, such as nails, to attach anything to your dorm walls. Most students use items such as white sticky tack, which removes cleanly and does not damage the walls.)

Clothing tip

While “campus casual” is the standard for attire around SEU, it’s a good idea to bring along a few professional-looking pieces of clothing for events such as in-class presentations, internship interviews or job fairs.

Don’t forget the tech

You’ll always want to stay connected, so be sure to bring your phone charger. If you prefer to tune in to music while you study, remember your headphones. Note that while you’re not required to own a computer, many students find that bringing their own laptop is very helpful, since it allows you to work and study just about anywhere. Wi-Fi is available throughout campus.

Did you know that the beds at Southeastern University are extra-long and not standard twin size?

The Department of Student Experience (DSE) would like to introduce you to Residence Hall Linens — a convenient source for ordering all your campus living needs. DSE has partnered with Residence Hall Linens to provide Southeastern University students and families with a convenient, affordable way to ensure you have sheets that will fit the extra-long mattresses in our residence halls. The Residence Hall Linens program has all your campus living needs, from extra-long twin sheets and comforters to matching towels and storage items.

Shipping is free for all Value Pak orders, and there are more than 40 color combinations available. Plus, linens are delivered to your home during the summer so you don’t have to worry about waiting in line at the store. Order now for the best selection — popular colors can sell out quickly!
