University: Complete Packing List For Dorms

Good morning lovelies, today’s post is pretty much everything I’m bringing to university. Some of my friends found out I made a legit list and they all wanted a copy so I figured I would just post it. Also check out Pinterest for a pinnable version of this list. Side note: I live about 8 hours from my school and my fam is staying a few days so they will all have suitcases so I had to be very efficient with my packing and anything I can buy there I will.

Don’t forget to check out my last post where I go into detail on why I’m bringing some of these things. University Dorm Essentials.
