Soap, shaving stuff, toothbrush, deodorant, desk lamp, fan, enough clothes to last two weeks with out washing, clothes detergent, pillow and sheets for bed, pens and paper, laundry bag, trash can. Is really all you need. Public transit or car. The library has computers and printers you can use at most universities. If you want to eat frozen meals and popcorn, a small fridge and a microwave. Get the meal plan if you don't want to make food. The less crap you have to haul the easier it is when you have to move. You will be sharing a room the size of a shoe box with another person and a bathroom with about 50 messy 18-20 year olds. Im 25 and currently live in a dorm, its not to bad, but the constant drunkness/loud noises and lack of privacy got really annoying, but im making do. Not being from the area it was easier to move to a dorm, and its not all that bad once you get used to it. Getting a private dorm to your self is worth the money when your older, but if your just 18 room with people it will teach you how to live with others. The tent and or living in your car sounds like a bad idea, just get a dorm..... Just my opinion.
