15 Dorm Room Essentials That They Missed On The 'Move In List'

It was almost two years ago when I arrived to my freshman dorm only to be horrified by how old it was (60s people, it hadn’t been renovated since the 60s.) I soon found out there was no air conditioning, same sex halls and how small the rooms were. Not to mention I did random roommate, and once I got to our room I was only given about 1/3 of the already tiny space for my belongings: I knew I had a problem.

I, like other girls, hoped my room would be big, to become besties with my roomies and live in a mixed hall next door to my future boyfriend. But man, was I wrong.

One thing I did learn was how much you’re not told about your dorm rooms, and the key to the game is making as much space as possible out of what little you have. I was not a library person freshman year, so I slept and studied in my room, and I needed space to get up and walk around a bit to clear my head. So I’ve compiled a list of 15 things freshman need in their room to survive their first year living in a dorm.

Be sur to check out these boots on sale, 11 celebrities who have twins, and CVS’s new makeup line.
