Get creative and let your dorm room scream, YOU! Whether you’re able to chat with your roommate beforehand to coordinate comforter colors or you have your own direction for your living space, be sure to give it as much of a home feel as possible.
We know you’re excited about entering college and getting that “college life” experience first-hand. You’ve probably received tons of graduation gifts, gift cards, money and advice on your next steps. But what do you really need when you’re headed off to college in August? We’ve created a Dorm Room Checklist just for you!
- Bed sheets, comforter, blanket
- Pillows and pillow cases
- Under bed storage
- Mini fridge
- Surge protector
Most dorm rooms have a desk set up for you to store all your computer related items. This will be your personal desk for all your long nights of writing papers or gathering class material, so make your space comfy and full of exciting colors.
- Computer, printer, headphones
- Ink, USB flash drive
- Printer paper, notebooks
- Calendar, folders
- Pins, pencils, markers, glue, stapler
- Waste basket
Make sure to start a storage bin or trunk early for all toiletries, bath towels, wash clothes, detergent, and all other home essentials you’ll need while in college. It’s a great option to drop things in as the summer days fly by, because before you know it, you’ll be headed off on a new journey.
Remember: This is the perfect opportunity to express yourself creatively, so have fun!
