13 Things You Absolutely Need In Your College Dorm

Updated: Jul 8, 2023

When moving into your dorm for your first year of college, you will need a lot of different things. So I have compiled a list of 13 things you will ABSOLUTELY need in your College Dorm in 2021.

1. Plunger

Let's be real when you gotta go, you GOTTA go. A plunger is something you will surely need in your college dorm, from experience you do not want anything stuck in your toilet, trust me. So go get that plunger.

2. Towels

Bath towels is must have for your college dorm since most Universities do not provide students with towels.

3. Laundry Basket

Laundry Baskets can be useful to help you carry dirty laundry between your dorm room and the schools laundromat.

4. Fan

I don't know about you but I need to have a fan on while I sleep. So this is a MUST HAVE (at least for me)

5. Storage Bins

Dorm rooms usually don’t offer a lot of space. So having these storage bins are super useful.

6. Shower Curtain

This one is kinda obvious you surely don't want to get water everywhere from the shower and slip and fall.

7. Bedding

Sheets, pillows, pillowcases, blankets, and a comforter.

8. Toilet Paper

This is one of the most important things on the list. You'll definitely need this for daily use.

9. Cleaning Supplies

A clean dorm is a healthy dorms.

10. Vacuum

For messes that are too big for the broom.

11. Laptop

Depending on what you are studying you will mostly likely need a laptop or computer.

12. Laundry Supplies

This consist of

  • Linter Rollers

  • Hangers

  • Stain Remover

  • Drying Racks

  • Detergent

  • Iron

  • Ironing Board

  • Closet Organizer

13. Smart Speaker

This is my favorite one because you can literally ask it anything and it will answer. You can also ask it to play "Y100 Michiana on iHeartRadio"
