Move in time is just around the corner for SJU students, and it’s time to start thinking about the dreaded dorm room. You walk into your new room and have a small panic attack when you realize that the beloved double you thought you chose is actually a single with bunk beds, or that you don’t have nearly as much drawer or closet space as you thought. If you’re an upperclassman you’ve probably been in this situation before and if you’re an incoming freshman, you’ll be in this situation soon. Here are 10 tips to deal with the lack of space in your SJU dorm room!
Instead switch out your clothes halfway through the semester.
Almost every dorm at SJU has a fridge and microwave included in the common room of you suite. Bringing your own will only take up precious space in your room. That being said, the Townhouses usually don’t have microwaves included but do have a full sized kitchen, which means enough counter space to bring your own! Donovan Hall also isn’t suite style so the fridge and microwave aren’t included. In both cases coordinate with your roommates so you don’t end up with four microwaves or mini fridges taking up space.
Tip: The bottom desk drawers at SJU are typically the biggest in the desk and are great for storing your toiletries and other items like that.
You probably won’t need duplicates of things, and those duplicates will just take up valuable space.
Two words: BED RISERS! Invest in four of these bad boys and a few rolling plastic storage buckets to slide in and out from under your bed and you’re good to go!
Also when your room is more organized you’re likely saving more space!
