I recently found a pretty good list at Franklin & Marshall's website. Instead of copy and pasting it; I will simply share the link:

Do note that requirements might differ from college to college. You can always reach out to the housing department of the college of your choice and check if they have a list for you.

My sister is moving into her first dorm this fall and I highly recommend something that will make the room smell better, like a diffuser. Her roommate is getting one.

Also, if you are a coffee/tea drinker, a hot water heater would be beneficial.

Other things my sister is getting: shower curtain, dishes, friend has fridge. Highly recommend checking out Dormify- they specialize in everything for dorms.

Like @talwin said, colleges tend to have their own lists so check out your own!
