Don’t forget to pack these essential dorm room items every guy should bring to college!
You may have a growing shopping list of things you need for your new dorm room, but be sure not to leave out these 5 dorm room essentials.
Dorm Room Essential 1- Video Games/TV/DVDs
After all your homework and studying is done, what college guy doesn’t like to unwind with a movie or by killing Nazi Zombies? A good sized TV, a video game console with a nice set of games, and a stash of DVDs should be on every guy’s dorm room checklist. Always be sure to consult your future roommates about bringing these items because only one of you will need to bring the TV and Xbox; also don’t forget a decent sized ethernet cable or a wireless adapter for the video game console (it’s always fun to play a game of Madden against a friend in another room).
Dorm Room Essential 2- Mini Keg Tap
Let’s not beat around the bush; college guys like to drink beer. Whether you are a light drinker or you are the one who throws the party, a mini keg tap beertender will definitely come in handy. This great addition to your room uses 5 liter mini kegs that can be purchased in loads of stores and come in almost all varieties of beer (I recommend the Heineken).
Dorm Room Essential 3- Foldable Beer Pong/Flip Cup Table
Going along with the last dorm room essential for guys, a foldable beer pong/flip cup table is key for the college guy who wants to play some drinking games in the dorm room but has limited space to work with. The foldable table provides a narrow 8 foot surface perfect for the dorm room and compact enough when folded to store under the bed or in the closet. For the college guy who doesn’t play beer pong, any folding table will provide an extra surface for eating or other things.
Dorm Room Essential 4- Coffee Maker
This one is maybe the most truly essential item on the list. Coffee is what fuels most college students. After a late night of partying or when waking up for that 8 AM math class, coffee is a must have. And on the tight budget of a college student, a $4 Starbucks Latte everyday may not work. Having your own coffee maker will allow you to roll out of bed and wake up!
TIP: If you are one of the many coffee drinkers who enjoys milk or cream in your morning beverage, bring an empty bottle to your dining hall and discretely fill it up with milk. Using the school’s milk rather than purchasing a half gallon every week will help cut costs.
Dorm Room Essential 5- The Mini Fridge
Last but not least, the mini fridge is an essential item for the dorm room. You’re going to need a place to keep beer, meals, and snacks so a good size refrigerator is necessary. Be sure to check with your school regarding any restrictions on the cubic footage of refrigerators. Also, I would recommend bringing your own rather than sharing with a roommate so there is no mix up as to whose left over chinese food is in there.
