What exactly does “furnished” entail?

Each apartment has been equipped with a standard inventory of furniture. Bedrooms include a full size (double) mattress, mattress cover, box spring, bed frame, bookcase, wardrobe closet, chest of drawers, desk, desk chair, desk lamp, and bedside table. Living and dining rooms contain a loveseat, sofa, or lounge chair, an end table, and a kitchen table with chairs or stools for the breakfast bar. Kitchens are equipped with a sink, counter space, stove and refrigerator. Bathrooms are equipped with shower curtain.

Apartments do not include bed linens, pillows, towels, pots and pans, dishes and utensils, microwaves, toaster ovens or toasters, dishwashers, air-conditioners, televisions or phones. If you would like to purchase any of these items when you arrive, retail stores are within walking distance of Shattuck House and/or accessible by public transportation. Also, consider using HSPH Classifieds — an HSPH-only resource where students, staff and faculty can post things they hope to buy, sell, and volunteer. You must have your HU ID to use this website.
