QUICK LINKS

At Navarro, turning your room into a comfortable new home is one of the important parts of the college experience. However, don’t bring everything you own since you will be sharing that space with your roommate. Contact your roommate when you receive your hall/room assignment and decide together what items to bring and how you want the room to look.
