Clothes, a bank account, toiletries, school supplies... a computer is optional b/c they have computer labs all over the place on a college campus. Make sure they have emergency phone numbers, information about their own medications/allergies/conditions. Also, decide up front how they're going to pay for the stuff they want or need... are you paying for it? Will you give them allowance? Will they get a job? Things like books, groceries, pizza, phone bills, etc can really add up, so make sure you discuss money up front.
