Summer’s still in full swing, but your mind has likely started making the unfortunate realization that it won’t last forever. Heading back to school is one of life’s harsh truths, but one that can be eased with a little ingenuity. Preparation is the key to an easy reinsertion into daily life, and if you’re heading back to university, your dorm room is where this prep should begin.

The dorm room has traditionally been the lowest of the low when it comes to cleanliness, functionality, and taste. Fight Club posters, mini-fridges stocked with cheap beer, and weeks-old underwear are the usual suspects, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

Heading to the pages of Urban Outfitters will reveal a wealth of easy ways to up the levels of your dorm room. From upholstery to coffee tables, ashtrays, and more, you can kit out your full dorm room here.
