Midday Fix: Dorm room decor

Know Your School Rules:
Students should check with their school beforehand to learn about the specific rules and regulations of their on-campus housing. This will help make sure they don’t spend money on things their school won’t allow or things that may be provided

Use a Checklist:
College shoppers should use a checklist to stay organized and on budget whether living on or off-campus. We offer a checklist for dorms and off-campus apartments that can be found in all stores and online at bedbathandbeyond.com.

Roommate Connection:
Students should reach out to their roommates before they shop to decide who is bringing what so they avoid bringing (and buying) duplicates.

Build a Better Bed:
Dorm room mattresses typically offer little support; build a better bed by adding a layer of comfort with a memory foam topper or fiber bed. Bring a mattress protector like the Allergy Luxe® Bed Bug Mattress Protector. Many college and university dorms have twin extra long (TXL) mattresses – make sure students know which theirs has before selecting their bedding to avoid return trips to the store.

Small Space Survival:
Students will have a lot less space in the dorms and will have to share it too. Luckily, there are some great ways to create more room by using storage and organizational items under the bed, over the door and in the closet.  Over-the-door is a great place to maximize space with a mirror, shoe rack, cap storage, an extra closet rod or hamper.
