I'm staying here next year as well. You are supplied with a dresser, desk, and bed frame. The downstairs is furnished as well. You just have to bring your own mattress. That price includes all utilities, excluding internet which is on average an additional $20. I was only granted permission my junior year because I qualified as a commuter student, so you will have to see what happens with your off campus permission. It all depends on the size of your class, as well as the incoming freshmen class. Hope that helped.
