This question is the one that every new residential Salem student asks! There are many ways to personalize your room and make it your own. Your room will be furnished with twin beds, two desks, two chairs, and two dressers with four drawers each. All double-sized rooms also have two closets, each to accommodate one student. Before you arrive, we suggest that you contact your roommate to coordinate who is bringing which items.
