Pulling an all nighter, binge watching greys anatomy, or having a night in with your friends– what do all of these things have in common? Food. Food in your dorm room. The following is a list of everything you’ll need to keep you and your stomach happy in your dorm room.
We have to start with the obvious right? Whether your on a meal plan or buying your own groceries, its always important to have a mini fridge JUST for you. You can save food you don’t finish eating, store healthy fresh food for long, and not have to worry about roommates stealing your food from the communal fridge!

2. Coffee/ Tea Warmer
We absolutely LOVE this idea here at Hangry. Do you ever make yourself a coffee, and by the time you’ve taken a 3rd sip it’s already luke warm? Or when you buy a coffee on campus and by the time you get home it’s already freezing cold and ready to be chucked out? A coffee warmer is your saving grace! This little pluggable electronic pad hardly takes up any space on your desk and keeps your coffee warm forever!

3. Food/Laptop Tray
This laptop/food tray comes in all different shapes and sizes and is perfect for working or eating in bed! Our favourite is the one that comes with a cup holder, and you can even opt for a cushioned one to protect your legs from laptop heat. Although this seems like a pretty obvious dorm essential, it often gets forgotten!

Sounds so silly- but you need it. In a typical dorm room, you have to head downstairs or sometimes even to another building to eat. Always make sure to have a solid stock of plasticware in your room incase you ever need to eat in.
5. Spill-Proof Glasses
Whether your drinking by your laptop or have a few friends in your room, messes happen easily in tight spaces. Spill proof glasses are a great way to prevent laptop explosions, or stained bed sheets.

6. A Kettle/ One Cup Coffee Machine
Don’t waste your money and time heading to the coffee shop twice or three times a day. Buying a kettle or small coffee machine with save you all the money and time you’ve invested into your coffee/tea budget for the year. This is perfect if you ever need a late night coffee/tea and a kettle can even be used for a hot water bottle or steam when you’re sick.

7. Chip Clips
We know you have chips hiding under your bed… and in your closet… and it plain sight. Don’t let them go stale. Buy the big discount bag from the grocery store and seal that baby up if you haven’t eaten the whole bag in one sitting (Kudos to you for the self control)
