At Seville Classics, we know that college students can’t always afford fancy furniture and appliances, but that doesn’t mean you need study in discomfort. In this guide, we’ve shared 5 dorm room essentials. They’re all under $30, so that you have a clean and comfortable living space on a budget.

Foldable Tufted Storage Ottoman, Alpine Gray

First, this minimalist ottoman adds storage space to your dorm, which is incredibly important in tight quarters. Simply remove the cushion top and place items inside the cube. The ottoman serves as a comfortable footrest or stool when fully assembled. It’s perfect when hosting guests or lounging with your feet up.

UltraSlimline 17 Inch Oscillating Personal Tower Fan, White

To keep cool during the hotter months, we recommend investing in a portable tower fan. The 17” UltraSlimline takes up minimal space on a dorm desk, but it provides powerful airflow and 80 degrees of oscillation. There’s even an automatic timer, so you can set it for 1 hour, 2 hours, or 4 hours and study until the fan turns off.

5 Compartment Drawer Organizer

School supplies can easily get lost in the shuffle, but with the 5 Compartment Drawer Organizer, you’ll have dedicated compartments for important items. Built with sustainable bamboo, this highly durable tray is designed for pens, markers, and assorted stationery. Best of all, if the organizer gets dirty, the bamboo material can be cleaned with soap and water.  

2-Tier Resin Slat Utility Shoe Rack, Espresso

With a few roommates living in the same dorm, shoes can become a cluttered mess. It’s well worth the $19.99 to invest in a utility shoe rack, and the Seville Classics 2-Tier Resin Slat model is an elegant solution. Each tier can fit three pairs of shoes, so if you include the space below the unit, that’s enough room for nine pairs! No tools are necessary to assemble the rack, and any college student can put it together.   

3-Tier UltraZinc Shelving Cart

Finally, this all-purpose shelving cart is ideal for assorted knick-knacks, including toiletries, snacks, and linens. Designed with zinc-plated steel, the cart is strong enough to support 150 pounds per shelf, and it’s highly corrosion resistant as well. All in all, it’s the perfect piece for multipurpose storage.
