You most definitely have to make sure that you have a comfortable bed because you will be spending a ton of time in there. Whether you’re sleeping, studying, or even eating, majority of your time in your dorm will be in bed. So let’s make it as cute and as comfy as we possibly can!
Here is everything you need to pack for college for bedding:
If you are living in a dorm, there is a high chance you will be using a communal bathroom. Which means you’ll be sharing a bathroom with the entire floor or section of dorm rooms. These are a must-have for your college packing list.
Some of these are quite obvious to bring but this list is so you don’t forget anything! These things are super important and why I included them in the ultimate college packing list for 2022!
Acne spot treatment
Hair ties/ scrunchies
Nail polish remover
Eyeglasses/ eyeglasses clears / contacts solutions and case etc.
Going to college may be the first time you do your laundry on your own. Most college laundry rooms do not have any of the supplies you need to do your wash. So you have to pack everything you need to do your laundry.
Laundry bag/ hamper

Let’s face it, you are going to spend a ton of time in your dorm or your college apartment. You have to make it comfy, cozy, and a place you actually enjoy being in. This section is a list of various things you need for your living space. A ton of the ultimate college packing list is in this section.

This is obviously the best part of packing for college- the clothes!

Going out clothes
Professional clothing such as: dress pants, blazers, button downs, etc.
I think it’s important to have a good stash of food in your dorm or college apartment even if you have a meal plan. Sometimes leaving is such a struggle and we just want something to grab while hanging out. Your microwave will be your best friend in college
Snack packs like chips, pretzels, etc.
College means you’re officially an adult (yay!) It also means it is time to have important documents on hand in case you ever need them.
