The Gables Apartment Complex is a vibrant and active community that’s just a short walk or bus ride away from academic buildings, athletic facilities, and UNH sports venues. Students who live here are able to lead independent lives, while still enjoying the resources available to those living on campus. With fully furnished apartments, a professionally staffed mail desk, a state of the art fitness studio, and on-site parking (parking pass required),Gables is the place to live!

You may not need every item on these lists.  For some a shower caddy is essential.  Others will not need one.  The included items are here to serve as a guide in creating your personal packing list.  It is a good idea to check with your roommate(s) before bringing everything yourself.  Often the amenities in an apartment are shared—there’s no need (or space) for two of everything.  Coordinating which apartmentmates will bring large items like a microwave, or television can save space and make a much more pleasant living environment.
