Personalizing Your Dorm Room Once You Moved In Dorm rooms are the type of places people move in and out of, which only makes it natural for the space to look and feel impersonal and imposing even especially to someone who's just moved into it. This is especially applicable to someone sharing a room with someone else, as you will always have to consider your roommate's personal preferences and private space as well. The first thing to do when you get to your dorm is to smooth out and be clear about all the financial and legal matters between you and your dorm / roommates. Be sure to read the contracts properly to avoid any misunderstandings in the future. Ask for your own copy of the agreements as well. Another thing to make sure to do is to define the space you have to yourself. This is important in personalizing your space as you know where the limits lie. Once that's in place, you can start adding your personal touch to your own pace by adding posters or plants, or any other decorations or designs you might think of. But be sure to consult the agreements first so you know you aren't violating anything. It is also recommended to bring a sealed container for your valuables. Of course, don't forget to take the time to get to know the people you're living with and establish a good relationship with them.
