Transitioning into a small dorm room or campus apartment can be overwhelming at times, especially for college freshmen. Exactly the reason DormSmart was formed several years ago, to create one market place for students to shop for smart essentials and decor, smarter supplies, that turn a small dorm room into a home away from home while complying with campus housing guidelines. As parents and students ourselves, we hated the perception in the market place that moving to college meant offering students cheap, unattractive, incorrectly sized, and sometimes unsafe products to take to campus. Campus bound students were, in many ways, an after thought in mainstream back to school shopping. At DormSmart, campus bound students are number one, our first priority.
College is a huge investment for parents and students, even schools. It is an unrealistic expectation to take a student out of the comforts of home and in a weekend’s time hurl them into a small barren dorm room with a stranger then expect them to hit the ground running. Students need a transitional space that helps them adjust to moving from home to college, a place where they can relax, study, organize, sleep, eat, shower, and socialize. A space that expresses their individuality, exceeds their school housing standards, and contributes to their overall success in college.
At DormSmart, our goal is to provide every student with smart ideas, choices in space saving dorm room essentials and decor, meaning quality, safe, and stylish supplies such as comfortable right size bedding for a good night’s sleep, low wattage UL listed auto shutoff compact appliances for safer dorm room eating, smart storage solutions and twin XL loft bed furnishings for maximizing space, UL listed safe lighting for late night study sessions, fast drying no slime no mildew shower supplies for the community showers, and much more. We've thought of every detail to help our students successfully turn dorm into home at college using smart products.
