College Packing List

Packing for college can be exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. Here are some things you may want to consider when packing for your dorm room:

1. Bedding: You will need sheets, a comforter, pillows, and a mattress pad. Make sure to check with your college to see what size bedding you will need.

2. Towels and shower supplies: You'll need towels, a bathrobe, shower shoes, and all of your personal hygiene supplies.

3. Electronics: Bring a laptop, a phone charger, headphones, a surge protector, a power strip, and any other electronics you'll need for school.

4. Storage: Consider packing items like hangers, under-bed storage containers, and storage cubes to help maximize your space.

5. Desk supplies: You will need a lamp, desk organizers, a calendar, and any other supplies you'll need for studying.

6. Clothing: Bring clothing appropriate for the climate and any extra items like a raincoat or a winter coat.

7. Room decor: You may want to bring items like posters, photos, and other decor to make your dorm room feel more like home.

8. Kitchen essentials: If you plan on cooking in your dorm room, consider packing items like a mini-fridge, microwave, dishes, and utensils.

9. Snacks: Stock up on non-perishable food items and breakfast foods to help find nourishment in a pinch.

Remember, space in a dorm room is limited, so make sure to pack only what you need and try to coordinate with your roommate to avoid duplicating items.
