What to Bring to Scripps
IMPORTANT NOTICE – We have recently updated our policy regarding college-issued furniture. Please read before making any purchases or shipping items to Scripps.
Effective May 20, 2019
Scripps College maintains a furniture policy to ensure fire safety, maintain cleanliness, and prevent exposure to pests in student rooms. All rooms are furnished by the College for its assigned occupants with a bed, desk, desk chair, dresser, floor lamp and wardrobe/closet.
Scripps-owned furniture belonging to the suite or room may not be removed under any circumstances and must remain in the assigned bedroom or suite. Students should ensure that neither any Scripps-issued furniture nor any personal items are placed in the room or suite in a way that impedes egress from the door or window in the room or suite. No furniture, whether College-issued or personal, should be attached to the building structure. Students are responsible for removing personal furnishings from their room when they move out of the residential space. Failure to do so may result in a fine.
No college-issued furniture may be used for outdoor purposes, unless it is deck furniture on approved balconies, porches or other outside areas. Only furniture intended for use outdoors may be used or stored outside. Indoor furniture may not be used or stored outside. Lounge or common area furniture may not be removed from the public space and/or placed in individual rooms or suites.
