Your room will be equipped with a sink, mirror (which doubles as a medicine cabinet), cabinet under the sink to store toiletries and supplies, closet, dresser, bed, desk, and bookshelf. Most rooms will also have a vanity. Freshmen in most halls typically loft their bed in such a way that their bed is on top of their bookshelf and desk. Lofting the beds typically allows people to fit other furniture such as futons or butterfly chairs.
