With many high school graduates moving on to college, now is the time to prepare your student for a successful school year. Starting college is such an exciting time filled with meeting new people and (hopefully) learning new things.

Living in such a small space一often shared with roommates一will be an adjustment. You can help your student prepare for this transition by making sure they have everything they need to stay organized in their dorm. Studies show that having an organized space makes it easier to study and focus. 

Below, we’ve gathered our inspiration for dorm room organization. 

  • Under-bed storage

Many dorms have beds that are high-up. If you have a bed that has storage space underneath, you can stow everything away neatly. You can also use bed risers if your bed is not high enough. If you don’t like the look of your belongings underneath your bed, you can purchase a curtain.

  • Mesh shower caddy

Shared bathrooms may require you to keep your toiletries in your dorm room. A mesh shower caddy can hold all of your shampoos, soaps, and other bathroom necessities while keeping your items dry.

  • Blackout curtains

College life is a busy life and you need all the rest you can get. Limit sunlight peeking through in the morning by purchasing curtains specially designed to block out unwanted light. 

  • Space-saving hangers

This kind of hanger allows you to pack more clothes into your tiny closet. 

  • Binder clips for chargers

Forget tripping over charger cords, organize them all neatly in one place, like the corner of a desk using binder clips, which you probably already have anyway.  

  • Hang things on doors or walls

Make the most of your space by investing in door or wall organizers where you can store accessories, shoes, jackets, and other important belongings you don’t want to lose.

  • Ottomans for seating and storage

Function is key. You can have a place to sit and store items all in one. You may even be able to find one that tucks under your desk to save space when you are not using it. 

  • Soap dispensing dish wand

This 2-in-1 device allows you to clean dishes seamlessly. You can dispense soap as you need it while scraping up food left on dishes.

  • Store clothes vertically in the dresser

Fold and stack your clothes vertically and you’ll find that you can store a lot more this way. Plus, it allows you to see all of your outfit options much easier.
