You will find details of what you can bring in our Allowable Appliances. Please note: Residence reserves the right to inspect appliances for safety and ask for them to be removed based on their age and/or condition.

Check with your home insurance policy to see if you are covered while you are at university. We believe Brock is a safe place to live but accidents do happen and it is good practice to insure your property. It is also a good idea to invest in a power bar with surge protection for your computer.
