10 Dorm Room Ideas To Help Freshmen Feel More At Home

It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since that August that my Mom and Aunt took me to college.  Just kidding – it’s been longer than that. I remember very clearly, however, how excited I was, as well as the very careful and thoughtful shopping that went into making sure I had everything I would need for the year ahead.

I’d seen the dorms on my tour and prospective student overnight visit, so I knew that my dorm room would be a far cry from my perfectly curated bedroom at home. I also knew that with the proper decoration, my freshman dorm room could feel like a home away from home. Which it did.

Here I’ve put together 10 of the dorm decorating ideas that I employed as a freshman, all the way through to  Senior Year. I hope that these dorm room ideas will inspire you to feel more at home on campus, and help you finalize the decor that you’ll be taking with you in just a few weeks.

After you go through the gallery, make sure to browse my DORM ESSENTIALS page.
