Move-In Day

Welch Hall

First-years in Davenport College live in Welch Hall, which is on Old Campus. On move-in day, College Street will be blocked off by the police and made into a one-way heading south from Elm Street to Chapel Street.

Davenport Crest

All Davenport students should display the Davenport crest on their windshield so that the student move-in crews can identify you and help move your things into your room. Click the crest for a larger image.

What to Bring

There are dozens of lists like this one available to you. This list is the absolute essentials for living in Welch as described by a former First-year Counselor. It does not include things shared by the suite. The same list is available as a Word document.

  • pencils
  • notebooks
  • fan (there is no AC)
  • lights (there is no overhead lighting)
  • bed sheets
  • comforter
  • mattress pad
  • pillow
  • clothing (most people bring too much)
  • hangers
  • laundry bin
  • cleaning supplies
  • coat hooks
  • trash can
  • towels
  • shower shoes
  • backpack
  • raincoat/umbrella

Printers are NOT recommended, as there is a printer cluster conveniently located in Connecticut Hall, and having and maintaining a printer requires space and money.

Furniture in Welch
