Most students don’t get to choose their bathroom setup, but if you do, consider getting a dorm with a bathroom shared by roommates. While dorm cleaning staff do a great job cleaning the communal bathrooms, the lack of privacy and hassle of frequent trips sucks.
If you’re stuck in a communal bathroom setup, you’ll want to bring a cheap pair of flip flops to play it safe on the sanitation end. You can use a towel for moving between your dorm room and shower, but we’ve noticed many students opt for a bathrobe.
Most students bring two bath towels and a small pack of hand towels with them to college. You’ll also need to find a place to hang your towels, so consider bringing a wall attachable towel hook. You can always hang your towel on the back of your closet door if your dorm has communal bathrooms.
Students with communal bathrooms need a shower caddy to store and transport their toiletries. We recommend getting a plastic shower caddy with drainage holes and a handle that can attach to a wall hook. While health risks are low, it’s still a good idea to keep personal hygiene items off the floor in communal bathrooms.
Stationery options like a wall-attachable shower caddy or countertop storage container are great if you have a private bathroom. A sink organizer is also helpful for keeping your hygiene products separate from your roommates.
You should visit your school’s housing website to find out what shower accessories your dorm provides. Students with private bathrooms usually need to bring a shower curtain and hooks.
You’ll need to bring an adequate supply of toilet paper if you have a private dorm bathroom. Most students split the cost of a 24 pack with their roommate to save time and money.
Staying in shape can be difficult for many college students, especially those who don’t monitor their weight. Having a scale in your dorm room is a great way to keep you focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
