St. Ambrose University's Residence Life Department works with selected vendors, external to the institution, to provide additional amenities to our residents.
Campus Cardboard is a company that provides a solution for college students faced with the problem of limited storage. You do the packing and they do the rest (pickup, store, and deliver). Whether for the summer or studying abroad, they even give you boxes. Check CampusCardboard.com for more information.
We work with Basket Bowtique, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to provide a great way for you to let your student know you are thinking of them. Care packages are available for move-in day, Halloween, Valentine's Day and finals week, for the fall and spring semesters. Check out the Care Packages page for more information. You will receive a letter and order form in the mail during the summer that describes the packages available, order by the deadline so your student is sure to receive their care package.
Residence hall rooms contain extra-long beds (36" x 80") which require extra long linens to comfortably fit the mattresses. Student Services has an agreement with an outside vendor to provide these linens through www.rhl.org/sta. Students will receive a letter and order form in the mail during the summer that describes the products and special packages available. Make sure to order by the deadline to ensure linens arrive at home before departing for campus.
If your student would like extra space in their residence hall room, consider renting a loft. Lofts are a great way to maximize space and they are delivered to your room so they're waiting for you when you arrive on move in day. Check CollegeProducts.com for more information. St. Ambrose's school code is "bees".
