Does the list include all college essentials?
The dorm room checklist includes all the dorm essentials. However, there may be additional items that you want to include for your own personal comfort that are not included. If you like to cook, you may need additional cooking utensils. If you do a lot of sport, you will need sports equipment. If you like to entertain, you will need additional serving dishes. If you love music, you might want to bring musical instruments or speakers and headphones.
You might want to buy some of the things nearby instead of transporting them particularly if you are traveling from far.
How do you know what things to bring to college if you haven’t seen the dorm room yet?
Our free printable college dorm list is based on the experience of many people from various colleges. If your dorm room needs more or less equipment, you might need to make some adjustments. If you want to save taking unnecessary items, then try to find out in advance what your dorm will include. If you are unsure and will be buying things anyway, then try to order them only once you see your room. That way, if you don’t need them then you won’t have to buy them.
How can you get away with transporting fewer items?
If you are ordering things from Amazon, you can have them delivered to your dorm and save yourself a lot of hassle. If you are buying things from stores, you might want to rent a car for a day and buy local products that you can take home. If you are buying from a local store that offers delivery, then you can save the car rental.
Do you have a college apartment checklist?
The college dorm checklist assumes you will receive basic furniture such as a bed, desk, chair, table, etc in your dorm room. If your apartment has basic furniture, then the dorm essentials list should include everything that you will need for an apartment. If not, you will have to add some basic necessities or rent a furnished apartment.
