Dorm Room Tour

Well, here is my freshman year dorm! I am studying at SDSU and lived in Ben Reifel Hall, which is a freshman dorm, but untraditional. I do wish I would have lived in traditional dorms for a year, but the extra space is nice. I will experience a different type of dorm next year so that will be a nice change. I will walk you through each “space” of the dorm!


My roommate brought most of the ‘living’ section of our dorm. I know that the futon mattress is from Target and the base is from Amazon.  She also brought the TV, but the 4-Cube Organizer is mine. I have four bins that I used to hold more clothes and other odds and ends. I also brought the ottoman, which was so helpful for storing all of my shoes and obviously putting your feet up. We also both brought a mini fridge and it was nice to have one to ourselves.


The closet is basically all that comes with the room. I have way too many clothes, so both the bar and the drawers were very full! I put a laundry basket on the top of the shelf to serve as a hamper. Then I just kept my toiletries on the shelf as well and shoved a lot of crap on top of my dresser because it couldn’t be seen with all of my clothes!


I was super happy with my bed, not only was it cute, but it was actually comfortable! This is my sheet set and a similar comforter. I had a bedrest pillow which I used every night when I watched Netflix in bed. I can’t recommend getting a mattress topper enough, either, it makes dorm beds actually sleep-able.


The desk obviously came with the room, as did the chair. I kept my makeup on top of my desk, I’ll have to do a makeup collection post here soon! I also had a desk lamp and a  light up mirror. The other items can be found here. I kept a three-drawer storage cart next to my desk for food storage.


The thing I was most excited about for living in a dorm was being able to decorate it! A lot of the decor I made myself, so it was cost effective as well. Near my desk, I bought some cheap picture frames to display some pictures and some of my hand lettering. Behind the futon, I created a gallery wall. The big picture is my roommates, some of the canvas I made myself and a few others were bought. Above my bed, I had my floral initials that I made and some photos hung up with clothespins.
