Moving Into Your First Dorm
For many college freshmen moving into dorms, it’s their first time living on their own. When you’re not used to being without someone making sure you have everything that you need, it can be difficult to get started on your own.
Zooz, your trusted local Tucson movers, have a few things to remember to bring when you’re moving into your dorm.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but while you’re worried about packing your things and getting to your dorm, sometimes you can forget to bring your deodorant.
Toiletries are usually sold on campus, but at a much higher price. Save yourself the cash and remember to bring all your personal hygiene products.
Don’t be the annoying roommate who never cleans up after themselves.
Remember to bring the things you need to clean your dorm, like a broom, dishwashing detergent, and bathroom cleaner, to name a few.
First Aid Kit
You never know what could happen, and you don’t want to be unprepared.
It’s always safe to have bandages and a wound cleaning solution to prevent infection.
Sure, eating out of paper plates and plastic forks saves you from having to wash the dishes, but it’s not the most cost-effective option. It’s much cheaper to have your own set of eating utensils.
Even though you have to share a laundry room, not many people are always going to share their laundry detergent with you.
It’s best to always have your own laundry products, like detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets.
For your safety, it’s always best to have a flashlight in case of a power outage.
Even though you share space with a roommate, after moving into dorms, you might notice that there is little to no room to have all of the things that were in your bedroom back home.
Storage bins are great space savers: you can stack them on top of each other or tuck them under your bed.
If it’s the first time you’re living far from home, you might get homesick.
It’s normal to miss your hometown friends, your mother’s cooking, and the comfort of your childhood room.
Remember to pack something that reminds you of home, even if it’s just a stuffed animal. It can bring you a great deal of comfort.
