The Newest Way to Plan for College: DesignYourDorm.com!

Posted December, 2009 by (Seventeen Magazine)

Planning for college can be tough, especially when it comes to buying gear for your dorm room. But the new Web site DesignYourDorm.com can help! The site, which was created by two recent college grads, allows you to see an online version of your college's dorm room. Various features let you virtually drag furniture (desks, chairs, beds) and electronics (iPod speakers, alarm clocks, lamps, etc.) to figure out the best and most effective use of your space. You'll save tons of frustration (and energy!) on move-in day, when everyone else is rearranging their rooms for hours.

DesignYourDorm.com also lets you collaborate with your future roomie (or roomies). By arranging things ahead of time, you can split up who's buying what. One of you can be in charge of buying the fridge, while the other takes care of the microwave. You can even buy some of those items right on DesignYourDorm.com - including funky blankets, comfy chairs, bookcases, even shower shoes - and it can all be shipped directly to your school!

17 Tip: Keep your door propped open during move-in week. It's super-welcoming, and people will be much more likely to stop by and introduce themselves!
