Community Shower Supplies Tip: The right shower supplies for college or boarding school make using the community showers safe, sanitary, and efficient for students.

Whether students use the community showers in their residence hall or share a common bathroom in their suite or campus apartment, it is important to pack shower supplies that make showering in cramped and public facilities more efficient, safe, and sanitary: Here's a list of shower essentials to pack for college or boarding school:
  • a waterproof shower bag or caddy to carry wet essentials into the shower such as shampoo, conditioner, and soap;
  • a storage caddy or extra shower bag to organize and transport dry essentials such as a blow dryer, deodorant, or makeup;
  • a spa wrap or robe to cover up when walking to and from the community showers;
  • absorbent towels to dry off; and
  • a pair of shower shoes or flip flops with good traction (remember a good fit is important to prevent injuries in the shower).
For a shared dorm room or apartment bath students may need to pack a bath mat or shower curtain, check with your roommate.
