Dorm Room Stuff For Guys That Is Cool and Useful 

HydroFlask

Are you even a young adult if you don’t have a HydroFlask? Stay hydrated and in style with a HydroFlask!

Ottoman

Ottomans are the perfect tool for any college dorm room. They are nice to look at, ideal to throw laundry on top of, and great to be storing things you don’t want the RA to see during room checks!

Shower Caddy

Whether you share a shower with one person or the whole building, a shower caddy is a great way to keep your stuff to yourself and showing off all of your cool brands of aftershave and soap.

Command Strips and Hooks

These little guys are truly badass. They are so cool because they can hold virtually anything you want on the wall. Grab a couple of packs of these if you want your walls decorated.

Memory Foam Topper

Trust us, you’re going to want at least one memory foam topper. You don’t know how many people have slept in that bed before you. And frankly, it is just going to be extra comfy with it.

Handheld Steamer

This is going to be your new college BFF. From giving presentations in class or taking that cutie from Calculus on a date, you’re going to need a handheld steamer since Mom can’t be there.

Desk Fan

So many people sleep with a fan on, and you’re probably one of them. Set this little fan on your desk while working or on your nightstand to help you sleep at night.

Air Purifier

Let’s face it, dudes can be gross sometimes. Help your guy out with a small air purifier to always have clean, refreshing air.

Safe Lock Box

Having a handy safe box is always a smart choice for college! Even if your roomie is your BFF, anyone can walk into your dorm, so get one of these for safekeeping your valuables.

Noise-Cancelling Headphones

You’re going to need these. Between your roommate also studying in their own way or trying to write an essay in the school library—these are a necessity. 

Reading Lamp/Portable Book Light

Keep your light discreet so that your roommate can go to sleep without the whole dorm room being lit up. Perfect as a nightlight—because guys sometimes need nightlights, too!

Body Pillow

There is nothing more comfortable than having an entire bed to yourself with a body pillow encompassing you. You’ll get a good night’s rest with this!

Mini Fridge

Even if this fridge is stuffed with sodas, candy, and other unhealthy stuff, at least it’s yours! Not to mention, this is a great tool for parties!

Nightstand

A nightstand to hold everything that you need. Your phone, laptop, 100 different chargers, some laundry, and can maybe even double as your dinner table most nights.

Stationery

Listen, your mom is going to love it if you write her a simple letter from your dorm room back to home. And stationery is always great to have on hand when you’re giving out your number!

Corkboard Bulletin Board

Stay on top of classwork with this bulletin board to post all of your due dates. Pin your fave pictures of nights you probably don’t remember on there, too!

Bunk Pockets

You’re going to need as much storage as possible when it comes to living in a dorm room. Utilize all the space you can with this bunk pocket to hide chocolate bars or keep your phone handy when you’re going to bed.

Bean Bag Chair

What dorm room is complete without a gigantic bean bag chair? Talk about a centerpiece—your dorm room will be the place to hang out with this comfy blob in the middle of it!

LED Light Strip

No products found.

LED light strips are the new lava lamps. They provide a cool dimension of light with several different colors and patterns for any mood!

Large Mouse Pad

Calling all gamers! This XL gaming mouse pad changes colors to get you Twitch-ready when you’re playing PC games all weekend.

Power Strip

You’re going to need a lot of power with how many electronics you and your roommate have. A dorm room only has so many outlets, so amp up the power with this deluxe power strip.

Keurig

If you don’t like coffee now, college will make you love it soon enough! This individual serving is perfect for coffee on the go when you’re running to class.

Teapot/Tea Infuser

And in case you just really, really do not like coffee, here is your tea diffuser! This helps keep your tea hot or cold and comes in a handy, reusable thermos for easy storage in your backpack.

Microwave

Most dorm rooms don’t come with a microwave, so this mini one is perfect for heating up leftovers or frozen meals! It’s also big enough to put popcorn inside, so movie night can always be hosted at your place!

Under the Bed Organizers

Keep your shoes, clothes, and supplies organized and out of the way with these under-the-bed organizers. Not only are you making your dorm room look clean, but you’re also using as much storage space as possible to make room for other cool things!

Texas Instrument Calculator

So, we kind of lied when we added this to the list because you probably don’t think a calculator is cool. But listen. If you have any sort of math class, you’ll be thankful you had this.

Portable Phone Charger

Sometimes, your roommate will borrow your charger, or you just need a quick juice up in the middle of class. No matter the situation, you got your portable charger on hand for any reason!

Laptop Sleeve

Keep your electronics organized in a cool, sleek way. These laptop sleeves help keep your wireless headphone and chargers all together in one space as well!

Essential Oils Diffuser

Do your mama a favor and get this. Any time you start to feel sick or when allergy season rolls around, she’s going to tell you to get some essential oils to help. Show her you’re a real adult by already beating her to the punch!

Desk/Large Calendar

Never miss an assignment again! This oversized calendar will help you keep track of due dates, breaks, and even help plan out study dates with that cutie from finance.
