Whether it’s to store that emergency stash of Ben & Jerry’s or the left overs from when your parents took you out during parents weekend, a mini-fridge is a necessity for any college dorm. You’ll be thankful when your friend loses their pint of Half-Baked to the abyss that is the common room refrigerator.

2. Personalized Decorations

The easiest way to make your dorm room feel like home is to decorate. Even if it’s only a few pictures of friends and family or a whole wall filled with posters, adding your personal flair will make the space feel like your own.  

3. Ample Storage Space

There’s no getting around the fact that most dorm rooms are small. Maximize the space that you’re given by making sure everything has its place. Drawers, command hooks, and extra shelving galore. Go wild and organize to your heart’s content.

4. Speakers

Speakers are multifunctional. Connect them to your laptop for enhanced movie viewing with friends, play some pump up music to set the mood before going out, or have an impromptu dance party. The possibilities are endless.

5. A Full-Length Mirror

Never underestimate the power of a good mirror. You never know when you’ll need to put your best foot forward. A quick check in the mirror before your head out the door will go a long way.
