Everything from your bedding to your wall decor to your mini fridge can make a statement about who you are and turn your space into a place that actually feels cool and cozy — you just have to find the right stuff.

Don't worry guys, decorating your dorm room isn't going to be anywhere near as hard as studying for finals. Why? Because everything you need is right here, from sheets to rugs to storage trunks (and with a few fun things thrown in there, too).
