What to Bring

Things to Consider Bringing to QBL:

For Kitchens:

Kitchens do not include any utensils, dishes, towels, ice cube trays, cleaning supplies, coffee maker, tea kettle or cleaning supplies. We recommend you coordinate with suitemates to bring those items that will make your stay more comfortable.  Some participants bring all kinds of things and end up with a fully stocked kitchen and decorations.  But most take just the essentials.

For Bedrooms:

Dorm rooms include overhead lighting, a small wardrobe, a desk, chair and bed.  The rooms are carpeted.  Linens provided include sheets, pillow and towels.  Most long time QBL participants prefer to bring their own linens (for XL single bed). Some also bring mattress pads. Other items that people often bring include alarm clock, reading lamp, extra blanket.

For Bathrooms:

Bathrooms do not include soap, bathmats, or hairdryers. Bathrooms are close to the bedrooms.

Other:

The dorms do have wifi access for those who wish to bring computers.
