What to Bring to the Hilltop

As St. George’s School prepares for a return to the Hilltop in September, please review the packing list below. While this list is not exhaustive, it does provide a roadmap to success in our residential spaces. We want students to feel comfortable in their respective spaces, and this is especially true in dormitories. Overall, we advise students to be thoughtful about the amount of belongings they are packing and how they intend to decorate their rooms.
