My Must-Have Dorm Room Items

In addition to the dorm room decor and organization ideas, I also wanted to share my must-have dorm room items. In other words, things to make the dorm feel more comfortable and make your college experience better.

 

Mini Fridge with Freezer

Having a small fridge helped me to keep healthy snacks like yogurt and fruit on hand.

Microwave

I loved having a microwave to make hot chocolate, tea, and cup o’ noodle soup.

Adjustable Shelf

This shelf is super useful! It fits around the mini-fridge and microwave to help save space but offer more organization. If you want a shelf like this with twice the organization space, check out this dorm shelf.

Shower Caddy

I was lucky to have a dorm room with a powder room (toilet and sink) in between rooms, but no shower, so I had to lug my shower stuff down to the shared bathrooms. The shower caddy makes that easy.

Shower Sandals

I hated wearing them, but shower sandals are definitely a necessity in the dorm.

Foldable Storage Organizers

We had no dressers, just a closet, so I had something like these organizers for some of my clothing.

Memory Foam Mattress Topper

The mattress topper made the dorm room bed much more comfortable.

Handheld Steamer

Depending on your wardrobe, a handheld steamer can be useful.

First Aid Kit

You need to have one of these on hand.

Bedside Organizer

This bedside organizer has 12 pockets that can hold your laptop, tablet, phone, water bottle, books and more.

Portable Fan

Depending on where you go to college, you’ll need a portable fan. I don’t ever remember my dorm being comfortable. You can always try a floor fan instead.

Microfiber Sheets

Make sure to pick up some sheets you’ll love.

Portable Laundry Hamper

Don’t forget something to put your dirty clothes in! Whether you’re going to do laundry at the dorms or at home, you’ll need it.

Surge Protector Power Strip Tower

This surge protector power strip tower has USB slots as well as surge protector outlets. With all of the tech gadgets that we use today, such as cell phones, iPads, laptops, and cameras, having a power strip is an essential dorm room item.

Underbed Safe

You may need to lock your valuables up, so having a mini-safe under the bed might be useful.

Utility Hooks

Hooks like this really come in handy!

Dimmable LED Desk Lamp

This 6-in-1 dimmable LED desk lamjp has a built in alarm clock, sensor base, bright LED light, USB charge, pencil storage, Fahrenheit temperature and calendar LCD display functions.
