Have you been searching for dorm packages that will make college shopping fun and easy? Check out these awesome options you are sure to love.

There are so many individual items college freshmen need that sometimes it’s easier to purchase a bundle instead.
When my son Quimes went to Marist we purchased his bedding and towels through the college. I have to say it was so much easier than picking all the individual items. He basically picked the color scheme he wanted, which was green, we ordered and that was it!
For my daughter, we did the opposite and ordered things separately from Amazon. You know what they say boys and girls are different. That’s been my experience anyway.
Not all colleges offer the package bundle through the school but don’t worry they are available online. If you have a child who prefers the ease and speed of packages then you’ll love the ones I found. From bedding to snacks to towels there is literally a package for all your needs.
This post is all about dorm packages that make college shopping easy.

Best Dorm Packages
When we purchased the bedding package it literally contained everything my son needed. Both these sets also include the starter essentials the average college student needs.
There are a lot of great bedding options in the Twin XL size. If you want the comforter to cover the bed instead of getting a skirt then I’d recommend the full-size comforter instead.
We bought a separate duvet and comforter so it would be easier to wash. Although my daughter just told me she never washed hers all year. Uggg I tryed!
In the traditional size, there are so many dorm packages to choose from in a variety of colors.
The Amazon set contains a comforter, sheets, mattress topper, and pad plus so much more. Even two 100% cotton bath sets are included which is awesome.
The Pottery Barn set is so pretty. We all know I’m a lover of pink and this chevron patterned bedding is stunning. The 11-piece set includes a comforter, shams, sheet set, and even a shag rug. This truly will help jump-start your dorm room decor for sure.
This is a great package to keep everything organized. Since most dorm rooms have limited space organizing sets is the way to go to really maximize your small space.

Trunk sets are so fun! They are great to store all your bedding when you travel and then after you can use the trunk as a coffee table or at the end of the bed.
This set is packed full of goodies too. It includes basically everything you could think of plus extras.
Buying a set of towels will make life so much easier than purchasing everything separately. This set comes in so many colors and includes 4 bath, 4 hand, and 10 washcloths.
You may think 10 wash clothes is a lot but they come in handy for removing makeup plus so much more. Plus after a lot of use, they need to be replaced.
Trust me you can never have too many washcloths!
