5 Ways to Make Space in Your Tiny Dorm Room

A clean looking office space

Living in a dorm means living in a tiny space. And you share it. Here are 5 ways to maximize those precious inches and claim them as your own. 

1. Turn Magazine Holder into a Night Stand

Having a private “cubby” by your bed can solve all sorts of shared-space issues. If you can hang it near an outlet, it’s a safe place for your phone while you sleep, too. Credit: DesignSponge.com

3. Raise Your Beds – and Power Up

If you aren’t already using something to raise your bed off the floor, you are wasting valuable space. These risers lift it another 7 inches and serve as a power outlet and charging station to boot. Credit: Bed, Bath & Beyond

4. Yours, Mine and Ours

This may seem silly, but the last thing you need is your roomie unplugging your laptop just before you hit save. Grab those little plastic tabs, a sharpie and use one for each cord. Credit: ApartmentTherapy.com

5. Double Your Closet Space

If you toss that tab each time you have a soda (or any canned beverage), you’ll be missing out on a great space maker. Slide one onto the top of a hanger and double your hanging space. Credit: funcage.com

BONUS: Use a Storage Unit When Home for Summer

Don't lug all your dorm room items home during the summer. Make use of a nearby self-storage unit from Storage Post instead. Call us at 888.370.0088.

I went in to check to see if my trailer would fit inside the storage that I rented and I was disappointed that it didn't so I went to the front office and asked Aaron if he had any outside storage available and unfortunately Aaron apologized to me that he did not and proceeded to ask me what size was my trailer and he told me to hold on a second and he proceeded to check and he informed me that instead he has a storage unit that may work for my storage needs and proceeded to take me to the unit and it worked perfect for my needs I was so thankful that he took the time and effort to go
