New Residents Info

What to Bring?

There are several items you may want to bring for your own room.

Each bed is supplied with sheets, pillow, pillowcase and blanket but many students add some furnishings to their room. You may like to supply your own bedding, as most students like to bring their own familiar bedding and make the room their own for the year.  You need to supply your own towels and bath mats, for health reasons we don't supply these. 

Large chairs, sofas, and appliances cannot be accommodated at Selwyn.  You may like to bring a small stereo, complete with headset, radio alarm clock. Many students bring their own laptop. You should be aware that loud stereos will not be tolerated. University WIFI is available for free at the College.

Start of the commencement service needs to be confirmed with Father Michael. We can talk about that at Management meeting.
