Here’s a list of 12 things that are NOT allowed in the IWU dorms, and what you should bring with you instead.
Instead, bring electric candles.
IWU doesn’t allow alcohol under any circumstances. Period. Instead, bring sparkling juice if you want to get fancy! If you’re celebrating a friend’s birthday or another special occasion, sparkling juice is still classy.
3. Scotch Tape
Instead, bring painter’s tape.
4. Tacks Or Nails
Instead, bring Command hooks.
5. Microwaves, Toasters, Or Mini Grills
Instead order one through the school’s microfridge rental program.
6. A Dog, Cat, Or Other Pets (Besides Fish)
IWU does accept emotional support animals; to be approved for this, call 765-677-2257, or email email@example.com.
7. An Air Conditioner
These are allowed in the dorms, but your dorm will already have one, so skip it. Instead, bring fans.
8. Items To Build A Loft
Instead, the school can loft the beds for you; rental lofts can be purchased through the Housing Office.
Instead, bring tapestries, photos, canvasses, and other decorations to spice up the walls.
10. Lava Lamps
Instead, bring decorative lamps.
11. Live Christmas Trees
Instead, bring fake Christmas trees.
12. Material To Create Barriers Or Room Separators
Okay, these might technically be “allowed,” but definitely not advised. Instead, bring a positive attitude and open mind – get to know your roomie!
