This College Move-In Checklist will help make sure you have everything you need for your bedroom. My younger son goes to college this fall, and I will officially be an empty nest. I’ve been buying everything you need for your college bedroom, as well as digging through our house for any extra item you can use.
This is my fourth son going to college, so I have a full list to share with your college student. Although many items can be bought once you’re on campus, it seems less stressful to start accumulating what you need before time.
I’ve booked a space in our house for all the elements you’ll need from this college move checklist. That way, it will be easy to load our car when it’s time to drive to college.
This checklist to go to college is organized in the following categories:
- Move in the day – depending on how dirty your room is, you may want to wash the floor and sanitize the room
- Bed – the most important article on this list is a thick mattress topper to make your college mattress comfortable
- Bathroom/Personal Care – make sure you have a tote/caddy shower to bring your supplies to the bathroom
- Laundry – basic essentials to keep clothes clean
- Room requirements and storage – the bedrooms are almost always short in the storage space, so these elements will make the maximum of the available space
- Supplies Office/Desk– bringing some home supplies will give you a head start
- Electronics– extension cords and a power strip are essential to make sure you can connect where you need
- Kitchenware – essential for storing and heating snacks and drinks
- Medicine – when you don’t feel well, having some basic medicines on hand is important
- Healthy Safety Supplies – Stay safe with these essential supplies
- Cleaning supplies – basics to keep your room clean
- Snacks – Great to have at hand for hunger pangs
- Travel – for weekend travel or home travel
- Decorations/Fun Stuff – customize your room to make it more comfortable
- Shared articles – the elements that you and your roommates can retire and enjoy together
I hope you find this useful resource!
