| Life at WSU | Residence Life | Living On Campus Checklists
If you choose to live in one of Worcester State University’s residence halls—Chandler Village, Dowden Hall, Sheehan Hall, and Wasylean Hall—you can get ready to set up your room by referring to the following list what to bring. Pay close attention to our list of items you shouldn’t bring as well. We share both lists to ensure that moving into your room goes as smoothly as possible.
All incoming deliveries of mail and packages are received and sorted in the Mail Center on campus.
Residents can pick up mail on weekdays in the Residence Life Office (Sheehan Hall, room 101).
The Mail Center will send an email alert to notify residents if they have a package waiting, and whether it should be picked up at the Mail Center (Learning Resource Center, room 129) or the Residence Life Office (Sheehan Hall, room 101).
The Residence Life Office will send an email alert to notify residents if they receive a package through the “Collegiate Care Package” program. These care packages should be picked up in the Residence Life Office (Sheehan Hall, room 101).

To help you stay safe, we conduct apartment/bedroom inspections for health and fire hazards once a month. All fire equipment is checked at these times as well as common areas, etc. We give at least 24-hour advance notice. If a hazard or violation is found in your living area, you will receive written notification and a period of time in which to fix the problem(s) prior to re-inspection—usually within a few days. Students who fail to correct violations by the time of a re-inspection may face fines and/or judicial action.
Residence Life and Housing personnel, other university personnel, or maintenance personnel authorized by the director of residence life and housing are authorized to enter students’ rooms. During vacation periods, personnel may enter at any time to make routine maintenance repairs and safety inspections to insure that the terms of the Residence Hall Occupancy License Agreement are being followed.
The Worcester Fire Department also conducts routine inspections of the campus for fire violations. It’s important for you to know that violations of fire or health codes will result in disciplinary action.
