You’re getting ready for college but there’s one daunting task ahead: packing. Packing up everything in your life for the first time can be an intimidating task in itself. It gets scarier when you’re not entirely sure what you’ll need and you have no idea what your dorm will be like. From bedding to food to school supplies and more, we’ve put together a comprehensive college packing list complete with all the essential items you’ll need.
Keep in mind when shopping that most dorm rooms have a twin XL mattresses, rather than just twin.
Check your college’s website to get an idea of the size and layout of your dorm room ahead of time.
Check to see how laundry works at your school. Some schools have a system where you can pay with your student ID, but you may need to bring quarters.
Even if you have a meal plan you will want to have some food in your room for when the dining hall is closed or you don’t want to walk all the way across campus.
If you forget anything or realize you didn’t think of something your college bookstore will sell some of these supplies.
If you are living in a dorm be sure to check what your school allows and if there is a communal kitchen for you to use. You may also be able to rent a fridge and microwave through the school.
Some degrees (for examples graphic design) may require a specific computer, be sure to check before you buy anything!
These are great things to coordinate buying with your roommates so you don’t end up with multiples.
If you run out of something and can’t get to the store, your bookstore may have some of these items as well.
Don’t feel like you need to pack everything you own. Save room for all the free t-shirts you will accumulate!
Be sure to keep these items somewhere safe.
If you have prescription medications make sure you arrange to have them filled by campus now.
