Summer is coming to an end and the kids are going back to school. College students are getting their roommate assignments and preparing to move into their dorms. Here are 18 back-to-school dorm room essentials that every college student needs to bring with them.
Note: Always check with your college’s residence life staff to be sure of what you are allowed to bring.
This one from Amazon shares not only the time, but the date and temperature too!
And don’t forget to add some style with cute accent pillows.
Space savers are important too.
Or, if you want something ultra portable, get a tablet.
This one from Amazon includes a little space for organizing.
Be sure to coordinate with your roommate to make sure you aren’t duplicating what you’re bringing, especially with expensive items like a television.
This one from Amazon is collapsible to save space and comes in a ton of cute colors and patterns.
No college dorm room would be complete without a funny or motivational poster on the wall.
Smartly saving space with an organizer like this is important when you live in a ten foot by ten foot space with another person.
This pack from Amazon has 7, one for every day of the week!
You NEED a bath robe. Trust me, it will be slightly less embarrassing to wait outside your dorm room in a bath robe rather than a towel when you inevitably lock yourself out and have to wait for your roommate to open the door.
They may seem dorky…but what’s worse? Foot fungus or no foot fungus?
Because you might not have a room right next to the bathroom and will have to tote your stuff around.
Unless you plan on stealing a few from the dining hall – don’t, that’s bad.
Stock up, kids. No one is packing your lunch for you anymore.
