Welcome to Pre-College! The University Stores are happy to support the Carnegie Mellon Pre-College Program by providing dorm supplies, course materials and computer services for students. Please see the information for links to help you prepare for Pre-College.

Dorm Supplies
We've teamed up with Bed Bath and Beyond (BBB) to offer our Pre-College students the best dorm supplies! Pre-College students can have their BBB orders sent directly to the University Store for pick-up on move-in weekend or have them shipped directly to a permanent address. Please use our special BBB/CMU website link to place orders. We ask that orders be placed no later than JUNE 15TH to arrive on time for move-in weekend.

We'll also have a Bed Bath and Beyond Pop-Up Shop outside of the University Store on Saturday during Move-In Weekend for supplies you might have forgotten!
