Knowing what to pack for college can be overwhelming. While everyone is different, use this packing list as a tool to get you started. It’s best to avoid using lists provided by stores or posted online because they often contain prohibited items.
More information on prohibited items and the Dillard University Code of Student Conduct is available in the Student Handbook and Residential Life Guide.
