What to Have on Campus

While the office of health services is stocked with most items you would need, it’s helpful to have these items available in your room in the residence hall for minor first aid needs or if you have a cold. Note that a basic first aid should include, but not be limited to these items.

  • Band-Aids (various sizes)
  • Neosporin or triple antibiotic ointment
  • Advil or Ibuprofen tablets (to reduce swelling and pain)
  • Thermometer
  • Cold packs
  • Antacid tablets or liquid
  • Heating pad
  • Nighttime cold medicine (Theraflu/Nyquil)
  • Antibacterial soap
  • Antibacterial wipes
  • Hydrocortisone cream (itching/swelling relief)
  • Benadryl cream and Benadryl tablets
  • First Aid cream for burns or minor cuts
  • Q-tips
  • Throat lozenges
  • Aspirin (to reduce fever/toothaches)
