Moving into the dorms can be quite the experience; gaining roommate, floor mates and sharing a public bathroom can all make for an interesting change. One way to make college dorm life the way you want it is to decorate your room in things you like, and colors that bring those boring white walls (or cinder blocks) to life! And, dont be taken back when you get there and realize that you are living in the size of what everyone on campus will reference to as a jail cell. :)
You are going to want to look up the regulations to decorating, each campus has them and they are all different. They have suggestions to what kinds of tape works best (and what wont take off the paint so you donít have to pay extra at the end of the year) to what you can and cannot bring. You may also want to coordinate with your roommate on colors and style, so that the room can come to life better.
Some great ideas to start with:
