Home / Essential Items you will Need for your Orlando College Apartment

Moving into a UCF off-campus housing is an exciting time for young adults. It can also be overwhelming. Especially when you try to narrow down what you actually need for your new home. While most people remember the most used items, such as appliances and furnishings, they often forget the most basic or important items to have. Thankfully, the following tips will help ensure you have everything you need for your new college apartment.

Start with a Checklist

Before you begin buying items you think you will need, create a checklist of what you already have, what you need, and how much of a budget you have to spend. This will give you a good starting point.

Basic Paper and Cleaning Products

Toilet paper, tissues, and paper towels are the three most common paper products that you will need for your home. Also, make sure to purchase some basic cleaning supplies, such as all-purpose cleaner, microfiber cloths, broom, vacuum, and trash bags.

Think Safety

While you may think nothing could happen, it is best to be prepared just in case. Purchase or make your own first aid kit that includes bandages, gauze, antibiotic ointment, hydrogen peroxide, et cetera. Don’t forget to also have a fire extinguisher in your UCF off-campus housing! You never know when you will need to use it.


Keep in mind that the initial purchases can quickly add up. To save some money, consider asking family and friends if they are trying to get rid of items on your list. This can help keep your initial cost low.
