If you come across a website or receive an advertisement that looks like your school or states that they are a business that is partnered, endorsed, or approved by your school, do not immediately assume it is true. Check them out before shopping for your college supplies. If you still do not feel comfortable with the retailer, ask your school officials about them. Regardless of where you choose to shop for college, and you can choose where to shop, you are solely responsible for ensuring the products you bring to campus are compliant with your school housing policies, so do your homework beforehand.
Check and respect your school housing policies.
