7 Essential Things When Moving Into A Dorm

If you’re moving to college and are planning on living in a dorm room. Here is our take on 7 Essentials a Student Needs When Moving into a Dorm.

Here’s The Kicker:

1. Bedding:

Sheets, blankets, and comforters are usually at the top of the list for one back to college purchases. We found an awesome bedding set at Bed, Bath & Beyond that included all of these things plus a hamper for his dirty laundry.

2. Bed Topper & Mattress Pad:

Let’s face it, colleges are not springing for top of the line mattresses. Most of these have probably been used for years. We found a nice (affordable) foam topper to help make his bed a bit more comfortable and a mattress pad to put over it.

3. Trash Cans:

Because a lot of dorms do not provide them, picking up a trash can is a must. Guys can be messy enough with one, I can only imagine his room without one.

4. Mirror:

Although most of their grooming will be done in the bathroom, it’s nice to have an over the door mirror to check yourself out before heading out the door.

5. Towels:

Because I am not buying him a “suite” of towels, we decided to purchase a couple of very nice sturdy (and soft) towels. These will (hopefully) be washed often so they need to be durable but yet soft after several washings.

6. Shower Supplies:

My son has to walk down the hall to shower at college. This means a shower tote and shoes are a must. Of course there are the fun options like shower radios to consider.

7. Personal Care Items:

Don’t forget personal hygiene supplies like shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, hair brushes etc. Room mates share, but sharing personal products is kind of gross. I’ve told my son to instruct his roomie to #GetYourOwnNow because health and beauty items don’t want to be social.

A dormitory (dorm) or hall of residence or hostel, is a building primarily providing sleeping and residential quarters for large numbers of people, often boarding school, college or university students.

Most colleges and universities provide single or multiple occupancy rooms for their students, usually at a cost. These buildings consist of many such rooms, like an apartment building, and the number of rooms varies quite widely from just a few to hundreds. The largest dormitory building is Bancroft Hall at the United States Naval Academy.
