When Victor is at Ingolstadt, he rents an apartment that is large enough to house a laboratory.  As he becomes more and more engrossed in and obsessed with his creation, Victor fills the room with not only laboratory equipment but also with parts of corpses and animals on which he experiments.

When Victor successfully brings the monster to life and flees his apartment, the monster runs off, and the reader finds out later that he took a coat from Victor's apartment which contains Victor's journal (this is how the monster is able to trace Victor to his family's house in Geneva).

So, a short list would be: laboratory equipment, chemicals, books, animal and human parts, and Victor's journal (until the monster unintentionally takes it).
