Dorm Room Essentials: What She’ll Need for Back to School

Dorm Room Essentials

Help make her home away from home as cozy and stylish as the real thing.

Whether she’s heading off to school for the first time (oh the jitters!) or she’s a collegiate pro, putting a fresh, stylish spin on her dorm room will ensure she feels comfortable and connected to home.

Start with storage: she can hold her keepsakes close and keep her clothes organized. Next, some practical and cozy bathroom and bedroom accoutrements will ease her into sharing a space with others (new floral or animal print bed sheets and a plush, fuzzy robe will top her wish list!). And don’t forget to consider a few pieces—think, a chair, a desk and a table lamp—to add to her study space. And up the style quotient with candles, small appliances, wood coasters, a must-have waterbottle and a few chic knickknacks.
