Moving to the dorms - packing, buying & storage advice needed - March 29th 2011, 07:56 PM


Pending acceptance to Memorial Unviersity of Newfoundland, I'll be moving into residence in Newfoundland in September 2012. Yeah, I know, planning way ahead here.

Anyway, I'm in BC, on the coast. About as far away as you can get from St. John's, Newfoundland without leaving the country.

I have lived in residence before. I know what to expect, sort of. What I haven't done is move into residence on the other side of the country. Before I was close enough to go home on weekends.

So, what kind of stuff should I plan to take with me, and what should I buy when I get there?

What should I plan to get rid of at the end of the school year, and what newly acquired items would be worth shipping home?

Anyone have any idea what storage costs in Newfoundland?

Starting in my second year, I may live off campus. I'll be in an engineering program that has work terms that aren't necessarily the summer semester.

For example, in my second year, I may actually be off doing an intership for September-December, and studying January-August. The next year I might work January-April, studying September-December and May-August.
Would it be worth it to pay for the suite for the months I'm not there, just to have a place to come back to and hopefully keep my stuff at? What are my chances of finding a room mate that would agree to that kind of set-up if I can't find another girl in engineering wanting a room mate?

Any other advice?


Quite seriously, anyone from Newfoundland, what's the weather like?
What time to what time of year do you have snow? What's the temperature like? What's the wind chill like? How "wet" or "dry" is the cold?

Around here, it doesn't get all that "cold" so to speak, but the air is always very damp, so even though it's only -5 it might feel like -35. On the other hand, in northern BC, -35 doesn't feel that unbearably cold because the air is dry.

The walls are high, the walls are strong
I've been trapped in this castle that I built for far too long
You have surrounded me, a sea on every side
The cracks are forming and I've got no where to hide
