Frequent Questions about Move-In and Orientation
What is a residential college?
What does my student need to prepare for the fall at Forbes?
It is recommended that s/he:
- Contact his/her roommate(s)
- Explore the Forbes webite (not just now, but during the year too)
What should my student bring? What should s/he leave at home?
How will my student decide how to share space with his/her roommate(s)?
They need to sit down and talk about how they want to set up the space and set ground rules, they may also want to complete a roommate contract.
Can my student have a car?
No, neither freshmen nor sophomores can have a car on campus.
My student is an international student. Who do we contact about visas, etc.?
My student has a medical condition/disability which will require special needs housing. Who should he/she contact?
My student has an ongoing medical/psychological condition that will need to be monitored once he/she gets to campus. What do I do?
You should encourage your student to make an appointment at McCosh as soon as possible in the fall (maybe even call before coming to campus), and to bring his/her medical information along to that meeting. The physicians and/or clinicians there can help to locate an appropriate local treatment provider, or to manage the ongoing care on-campus, if appropriate. http://www.princeton.edu/uhs/about/
