To keep travel simple, bring as little as possible. You are less likely to lose luggage if you follow the baggage limitations of international airlines. You will need to bring the following personal items with you:
- bedding (pillows, linens, extra-long twin sheets, blankets)
- wash towels
- desk lamp (standard U.S. electric current is 110 volts)
- alarm clock
If you are unable to bring these items with you, you can purchase them at local shops when you arrive at Bennington; there is a shopping trip planned during your orientation. If you wish to ship some of your belongings in advance, you should put the following information on each item:
Bennington, VT 05201-6001, USA
The shipping fee for trunks and packages must be paid in advance. Our post office on campus will hold your boxes until you arrive.
