Men, Boys, and Female,

It is almost time for me to move in for my first year of college, and I know if others haven't yet its time for them too.  I want to make sure I have everything I should for our room, and I know most of you guys will know the niche items a dorm should have.  I'm not talking toiletries, basic necessities, etc.  I'm looking for the things that people don't normally think of or that aren't typical living necessities and any tips you guys have.  So, what do I need to bring and what should I have?

Thanks brodudes.

Lots of fans. My freshman year, we had 5 in our little dorm room.  In the summer, when it was hot outside, it was boiling inside. Then, in the winter when it was -16* outside, it was STILL boiling inside, because the brick dorms on the sunny side of a mountain were like ovens.

Even if you have an AC unit, an oscillating fan can make it easier for you and your roomate to agree on what temp to keep the thermostat at.

Hide your booze in your dirty laundry if/when searched. Nobody is going to look through there.

As stated before fan! it will save you, also a good set of headphones so you can work when your room mate is being loud or something. A good reading lamp, my room mate falls asleep before me so I use the lamp to get a lot of homework done. Also the last thing that has been awesome is bed risers (little blocks the bed sit on to raise it off the ground) give me so much more storage room.

this is good not only  for random searches, but for any (and hopefully no) thieving room mates. same goes for anything valuable. lock that stuff up. get a chain and padlock if you have to.

a room mate who leaves the door open or unlocked is unsafe...secure your stuff by any means.

loft your beds, and get either a futon or a small sleeper couch.  we had a 2 seat couch with a twin sized sleeper in it, and it worked well if either of us had a friend from back home over.

Tools. When some chick manages to break something and you can say in an offhand manner "Oh, I can fix that..." Instant brownie points.

Plus, you'll never know when you'll need them yourself. Keep a basic assortment of screwdrivers, all different sizes, a roll of duct tape, hammer, pliers, and various wrenches. That should serve you well.

Small toster oven, if the college will let you have one.  Also a small fridge.  Other than that I used paper plates.

Make you and your room mates beds into bunk beds so there is more room for activities.
