College Moving Tips
Assemble a “survival” bag. Include in it the items you use on a daily basis — toothbrush, phone charger, deodorant, soap. Your first day in the dorm will definitely be exciting, and it may also be a bit exhausting. You'll be glad to have these items readily available if you don't have the energy to unpack everything.
Use Scotch® Packaging Tape to secure cords and attach them to your computer, TV, lamps and other dorm room or apartment appliances and electronics. This will keep cords and items together and help prevent anyone from taking a tumble during the move.
Pack a box with room setup essentials — small tools, Command™ Hooks, tape measure, extension cords, power strips — and label it accordingly. Having these things handy will help you get settled comfortably as you unpack, and can be a great start to a toolkit to have on hand for the entire year.
Keep all your memories and belongings from home safe — securely wrap picture frames, fragile mementos and breakable bath or kitchen items with Scotch™ Cushion Wrap.
Divide all your clothing into boxes according to the seasons. To start, only bring with you items you'll need for autumn and early winter — most dorm rooms and apartments don't offer much storage, and you can simply bring boxes home and exchange them over a holiday break.
Scotch™ Moving Boxes break down for easy storage in small rooms and apartments. They'll easily tuck under beds, against your closet's back wall or even fit under the living room couch!
Scotch® Packaging Tapes are great for sealing all your boxes for a safe move to your new campus home.
