15. Closet Organizers and Curtain
When you make it to college, one big thing you’ll notice is how small the rooms are, making organization a key element of your everyday life. There isn’t enough space to fit in everything that you brought, but cramming things in draws or leaving items out in the open might not be an option, which is why organizers are crucial.
One such organizer is for your closet. Having this space is perfect to neatly fold your clothes and tuck them away from prying eyes. Another great tip for college bound women is to have a curtain to block off this closet space, making changing a private affair.
14. Safit 6 Pockets Bedside Storage Organizer
Like the closet organizer, space is key. Finding small ways to add more pockets and carriers around the small dorm room can make or break your experience. If your room is too cluttered, you won’t want to stay in there and it could cause anxiety, poor grades and focus.
But if you make sure your space is tidy and organized, you’ll feel more on top of things. That’s why having a bed caddy is also important to make sure electronics or any other necessities are close by when you’re relaxing in your space.
13. Your Favorite Water Bottle
When you spend most of your time rushing to classes, it can be tricky keeping up hydration. Buying water bottles throughout the day is pricey, so having your own reliable one is perfect for everyday travel, as well as the evenings. No one wants to wake up in the middle of the night and go to the bathroom or water fountain for a drink.
There are several popular brands when it comes to water bottles, like Yeti’s and Hydro Flasks. With its sleep look, durable creation and a straw, this is the perfect water bottle for college bound women.
12. Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker
College is tough, and more often than not students are staying up past their usual hours, clocking in more work to get everything done, or from hanging out with friends. Whatever the reason for the long nights, there should always be something that you look forward to waking up. For those who have 6am classes, or those that have projects due by midnight, having a coffee machine in your dorm room can be essential.
Keurig is extremely popular brand when it comes to college students, as it’s fast and easy and there are a variety of pods that you can pick from to find the right flavor. And the Keurig K-Mini is the perfect fit as its compact and great on desks.
11. U2SKIIN Women’s Robe
Taking a shower in a communal bathroom can be hard as it is, as it’s an intimate process that most want to be alone for. But having to run back to your dorm room dripping wet, or in damp clothes can be even more frustrating.
But having a robe that not only keeps you warm and covers you almost completely until you reach your room is the perfect solution. With high reviews, this U2SKIIN robe is perfect for college bound women looking to add a bit more privacy into their lives.

10. Fairy String Lights
Fairy lights are trendy with college bound women, and rightly so as they are a great way to decorate space. RaThun Globe String Lights are perfect for dorms and student housing.
They include 8 lighting modes and a remote for when it’s time to sleep. The string lights will give you an opportunity to light your area the way you want it.
9. Shevalues Shower Shoes
Let’s be honest—communal dorm showers can be less than clean. To help combat that, try the Shower Shoes. These shoes have a special design used to drain water off of them quickly and easily.
Along with this, there is also a layer used for antimicrobial protection. They include multiple fun designs that you can use to accessorize for any shower, beach, or any damp situation you could find yourself in, perfect for college bound women.
8. Candle Warmers ETC.
College dorms can be smelly. Especially if you live in a hall next to the men’s side of the dorm… and it’s a sports team hall! To help combat that, a candle warmer works wonderfully.
Turning the warmer on once or twice a week, a couple of hours at a time (while you are present, of course) will allow your room to be the perfect hangout for studying with your friends.
7. Unstopables Scent Booster
It takes time to wash your clothes, but with Unstopables, you’ll spend less of that time wondering if they’ll come out smelling wonderfully.
Simply sprinkle a capful of these wonderful scent boosters into the bottom of the washer before you put your clothes in, and let the machine do the rest.
6. Combination Magnetic and Corkboard
This board is a wonderful way to keep in touch with your friends, make plans, and keep assignments straight. If you place the board on your door, your friends can write messages to you as they go past. If you have the board in your room, it’ll be easy to mark out your schedule and make plans.
If you pin brochures for activities onto the corkboard and write them down, you’ll be less likely to forget them, and more likely to have a successful semester as a result.

1. Bestek Outlet

With the Bestek Outlet, you’ll be able to protect yourself and plug in. The outlet charging station has a built-in safety system to keep it from overheating and catching fire in the first place.
