    99 Things You Need for College Campus Living (College Dorm Checklist)

    Just moving to college?

    And wondering,

    what to bring to college and what not?

    Alright, ok.

    You can use this checklist to make sure you have all the things you need for college campus living.

    This list includes all the things you need for college or the things needed for college as a freshman.

    I call it uncensored dorm checklist.

    It’s probably because you got the control here. Keep or remove anything putting your necessities and priorities up front.

    As, far away from your home, you have to settle and run another small home for yourself.

    Though temporarily, but you need all the necessary things there that you can use in everyday work. Nah? Moreover, if you need a word see also how you can preserve some fortune for yourself.

    How to Know What Things You Need for College Apartment And What Not?

    The easiest way is to sit relax and imagine your 24 hours (day/night) routine in your college dorms.

    Some quick ideas will pop up in your mind. And you’ll be getting clear gradually about the things you need for college.

    This would serve as a good start.

    Rest assured, you can always come to this page and tick those items you had added already into your packing list. And find out those you are just missing.

    Of course, you’ll not be given separate rooms. All you have to do is to manage in a single room.

    All of your mess for one medium sized room. Which is sometimes a shared room. Though the trends are changing, but still it is where you (sometimes) have to bear one or more other students too.

    And you people have to divide and turn that single room into a whole (building) home of yours. Here’s the wise (separations) checklist to consider.

    Let me break it into the building blocks of your college dorms.
