Going back to school is a fantastically fun time of year. Back when I was in university I couldn’t wait to leave the parental units at home and head off to greener academic pastures. But what to bring? If you’re a student about to live in a college dorm room (or university residence) then getting organized can be a daunting task.

To help you sort though the seemingly endless list, I’ve put together the Dorm Room Essentials Checklist to help. There are wide variations in what various dorms and residences provide, so this list includes many essential items which may already be provided at your school. Stuff like dorm room furniture, bedding, and kitchen supplies may not be required. So be sure to check twice before going back to school with the kitchen sink.
