Did you bring a new computer?
Although Millersville has no university-wide requirement to own one, most students do and find it a tremendous help. If you decide to bring a computer from home or if you are in the market to buy one, view our Purchasing a New Computer - Students page to help ensure that you have the right stuff.
Run Windows updates?
Do you have your power cord?
Since you will be packing a lot of things to come to campus, small things like power cords tend to be forgotten.
Do you have a surge protector?
Not only are they great for protecting your electronics from random surges, they also help to increase the number of outlets in your dorm room.
Do you have a carrying case?
There are many different choices available for purchase. Backpacks with integrated laptop storage are always a popular choice.
Do you have a Network Cord?

The network jacks in your room will be together on one side of your room and you may want your computer on the other side. If you do not know what a network cord is click
