The best part of going back to school is…homework and exams! Just kidding, it’s of course the back-to-school shopping! College students don’t buy just folders, notebooks, and textbooks- they also need dorm decor. Most students have limited funds, so decorating on a budget is key. We understand the struggle and we hear you; we’ve curated a list of the best shops for dorm decor shopping. Whether you prefer seeing pillows in person, or like merchandise coming straight to your doorstep, we’ve included stores and online shops.
- Target: What would a back-to-school list be without Target, right? This powerhouse store sells all the essentials one needs to make their dorm room the best in the building. From bedding to side tables, rugs, posters and everything in between, Target has it all. They even have a page dedicated to just college! See it here: https://www.target.com/c/on-to-college/-/N-5q0g0
- Bed Bath & Beyond: If you’re willing to spend a bit more, Bed Bath & Beyond is another big-name store that has to-die-for college essentials. Buy towels, bedding and even furniture from high-end brands like Calvin Klein, Lacoste, UGG, and Serta. BB&B is also known for their killer organizers for everything you could think of. Not to mention: BB&B’s large selection of NCAA-branded gear is also a big-seller. Check their merchandise out here: https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/page/College
- Amazon: We bet you weren’t surprised to see this e-commerce store on the list. Amazon is one of our favorites because you can source dorm room gear from anywhere in the world. Do you like that tapestry that’s sold in China or that notebook from the UK? Sign up for AmazonPrime and get whatever your heart desires within 2 days.
