The Must-Have College Dorm Items You May Not Have Thought of and Cant Live Without

Ultra-slim hangers

Dorm closets arenrsquo;t what wersquo;d call spacious, and yoursquo;ve got to do what you can to maximize the space. These skinny hangers take up less space than those chunky plastic guys, which means you can cram more clothes in there. The texture also keeps stuff from falling off so all those college t-shirts dont end up in a pile on the floor.

Foldable chair

Floor space is limited in most dorms, but that doesnt mean your college student wonrsquo;t have friends over. A chair that folds is key because they can stash it under or behind the bed when not in use.

Chair covers

Dorm chairs are gross. Period. And, a chair cover is a great way to add a little design flair into the space.

Bottom sheets only

Have you heard that millennials are doing away with top sheets? College students are running with this trend, so dont waste your money. And remember to buy size twin XL for the bottom sheetsmdash;this is the most common size of dorm mattresses.

A good mattress cover

This may be the only time you want to allow yourself to think about how many other people have slept on that mattress, and what they might have done on it. Eww, we know. Now go out and buy something with the word ldquo;antibacterialrdquo; in it.

A good mattress topper

Yes, one more thing yoursquo;ll want to buy for your childrsquo;s bed. This one isnrsquo;t a necessitymdash;unless the quality of your college studentrsquo;s sleep is important. These mattresses arenrsquo;t exactly what yoursquo;d call cushy, and a memory foam topper can make a huge difference.

IKEA bags

We were late to the IKEA bag party, and now we donrsquo;t know how we lived without them. Whether your child needs a place to stash snacks, sweatshirts, towels, or shoes in the dorm, or just wants a sturdy bag for transporting dirty laundry home, these bags are invaluable. And theyrsquo;re only 5 apiece.

A decent quality fan

Donrsquo;t count on a consistent temperature in the dorm. Depending on the collegersquo;s geographic location and the particular dorm roomrsquo;s orientation, your child may get toasty. A fan that clips to the bed is your best bet since there will likely be limited floor space.

A humidifier

Depending on the age and maintenance of the dorm, you may have a moisture issue. In our experience, it was hit or miss Our daughter didnrsquo;t have an issue in her room, but many of her friends did. Since shersquo;ll be staying in a different dorm this year, wersquo;re going the ldquo;better safe than sorryrdquo; route and purchasing one in case she needs it. Wersquo;d rather have a fan on hand if needed than have her dealing with musty surroundings while we search for one.

A book light

The overhead light might be the only light in the dorm room, although many also have desk lights. Still, this may disturb your childrsquo;s roommate. A light they can use to illuminate a small area over their book or laptop while theyrsquo;re in bed can be quite useful.

Noise-cancelling headphones

If he or she cant get their roommate to stop yapping or turn down the music, these headphones will do it for them.
