All STP students are required to eat in the mess hall (Crozet Hall) and live in barracks. The STP 19-meal plan provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday.
VMI provides the furniture and mattress, but students must bring their own single-bed sheets, pillow, pillowcase, blanket, and towels. The summers in Lexington can be quite warm so bringing a box fan is a good idea. You may bring a fan 12" - 16" in size.
