Dorm Moving Tips

College is an important time in any young adult’s life. It is a time of freedom and exploration. Most importantly, it’s the time when students finally leave the nest and move to a dorms. Moving into a dorm is different than moving into a house. There are various points that need to be remembered as you start to pack for your new college stuff. Below are 10 Dorm Moving tips for all Chicago College students.

What’s Your Dorm or Apartment Like? During your college tours, you’ve most likely seen what the dorm you’re about to move into looks like. Take this into consideration as you pack. How big is your room? Does it have a communal bathroom or a private one? Is there a shared kitchen that you can use? Will it fit a fridge? How many drawers will you have? If your moving into an off campus apartment, expand your list. Do you need furniture? How about kitchen appliances and food?

What to Take Do not, do not take everything. Your dorm room with be considerably small than your real room. Not only that, but you will most likely have to share with one or two other people. Make a list of the things you absolutely need. Clothing, along with towels, bed sheets, blankets, and other toiletries will be needed. Get a bathroom carrier to make storing your soaps and going to the bathroom easier. You wouldn’t want your roommates using your shampoo. If there is a kitchen, decide if you are actually going to use it to cook and pack accordingly.

Storage Bins More likely than not, there will be space under your bed to store things (unless you have the top bunk). The provided drawers might not be enough room to keep all of your stuff. If that is the case, some storage bins will easily solve your problem. If anything, you can use them to store clothing as the weather changes. In an apartment, these will give you time to go out and get bedroom furniture.

Locked Box Then comes the questions of valuables. Should you bring that diamond necklace you got as a graduation gift? That’s completely up to you. However, if you do, consider getting a locked box to put your jewelry in. While your new roommate might be the greatest person of Earth, you can never be too safe about your valuables.

Organize Mark everything you pack to make unpacking easier. Put the clothing together, the toiletries together, and the bed linens together, etc. You might be bringing some imperishable snacks to hold you over until you find the local convenience store and you don’t want your blankets to smell like sour cream and onion chips. You also do not want to mix up your stuff with your roommates.

Tools & Necessities You might want to bring a mini screwdriver set just in case. You never know when something needs fixing. Maybe the screw on your chair is loose or maybe you want to shift the height of your bed. Either way, better safe than sorry. Also, bring a roll of paper towels in case. Unpacking can get messy and you don’t want to run around trying to find something to clean up with. If you have a private bathroom, remember to bring toilet paper.

Personal Effects Moving out can be hard, especially since it’ll be the first time you’re truly living alone. You’ll be leaving your family and your friends. Bring some small things to make the transition easier. Pack your favorite stuffed animal or pillow. Bring some pictures as well to put up on your wall. It’ll make your space seem a bit more comfortable.

Moving Company If you have no idea where to start, consider hiring a moving company. The Professionals are the top moving specialists in Chicago.
