What are some must-have items for college dorms?

Hey guys! I know it's early, but I'm starting to think about what I'll need to bring to college when I move into a dorm. What are some essential items that you guys brought with you or wish you had? I want to be prepared and make my dorm feel like home. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's great that you're starting to plan early. Some must-have items for college dorms include: 1) Bedding: sheets, pillows, and a comforter or duvet. 2) Towels and shower shoes for the communal bathroom. 3) A laundry hamper and laundry detergent. 4) Power strips and extension cords for all your electronics. 5) Desk supplies like pens, pencils, paper, and a desk lamp. 6) A small toolkit for minor repairs or adjustments. 7) Storage solutions, like under-bed storage, closet organizers, or over-the-door hooks. 8) A small fan or space heater (depending on the climate). 9) A mini-fridge and microwave if they're not provided by your college. 10) Personal touches like photos, posters, or wall art to make your space feel more like home. Remember, it's best to check your college's guidelines on what's allowed and not allowed in the dorms. Good luck with your preparation!
