They cause holes which causes you some damage fees, so leave them at home and bring some command strips instead.
3. Coffee Maker
Only those with exposed heat surfaces are not allowed. Try a single cup coffee maker instead!
I know…we all want our rooms to smell good. But candles are a huge fire hazard, so bring some air fresheners to make your dorm room smell better!
5. Homemade Loft
If you want to make your bed higher up, try some bed risers instead! They are also a cheaper option as well!
6. Electric Blankets
Sadly, nothing can replace the warmth of your heated blanket on a cold, winter night up here in the mountains. I guess you’ll just need to bundle up with more blankets!
7. Air Conditioner
Using a small fan that clips by your bed saves space as well as saves you a fine!
8. Halogen Lamps
Again, fire hazard. Using a small desk lamp will work!
This is basically a no-no for most colleges, but you can have a small fish tank at PSU! Just remember to take care of it of course!
… Just kidding. But glad you’re still reading! This is kind of silly and a no brainer, but I thought I’d add this in just to give you guys some laughs!
