Now each school has different requirements, for example some schools do not allow candles, coffee makers, etc. And some dorms may come equipped things like a desk and desk chair, so check your school’s dorm or apartments staff. Call the deans of the dorms or apartments or you can visit your school’s website and find lists there as well.

Not all of these supplies are necessarily required, this just a general list to give you an idea of what you may need so you and your family should decide what’s best for you!

Congratulations on starting college, going back to school, and for sending your children to school! College is the BEST years of your life so have fun!

Don’t forget your school supplies too! Check out this list!
