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.
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.
- fan (there is no AC)
- lights (there is no overhead lighting)
- bed sheets
- mattress pad
- clothing (most people bring too much)
- laundry bin
- cleaning supplies
- coat hooks
- trash can
- shower shoes
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.
