How to organise your small student room

Your university halls may not have loads of storage, but our simple organisation solutions not only give you more space but look stylish too.

Show it off

Don’t have enough wardrobe space in your halls? Try an open clothes rack. They’re not only budget-friendly but also a great way of showing off your favourite outfits. Just hang some hats up and stack a few shoe boxes up on the floor to complete the look.

Use your space

If you’re struggling for storage in your halls room, look to see where there’s wasted space. For example, a couple of underbed boxes on wheels are a perfect place to stash shoes.

Make the most of walls

When it’s time to buckle down and get studying, you’re going to need a space that’s super organised and spacious enough to spread out. That means lots of shelves, trays for paper, and even a peg board for desk accessories and personal momentos.

Create stylish shelves

Putting your books on a bookshelf is a no brainer, but use it to show off other things too. A combination of your favourite magazines neatly stacked, boxes for papers, as well as personal objects and on-trend indoor plants make for a stylish shelf display.
