The Definitive Ranking Of College Dorm Room Posters

Audrey, Bob, those two girls kissing: They’re all here. BUT WHAT WILL TAKE THE NUMBER ONE SPOT?!?!

25. Animal House

I mean, it literally says “college” right there. It doesn’t say “elementary school,” it doesn’t say “vocational school.” Doesn’t even say “collage.” It says “college.” If you ever need to be reminded of the space your body is currently occupying, this poster is for you.

24. Pulp Fiction

An absolute MUST for fans of men holding guns.

23. Bob Marley Looking Slightly to the Left

Quite a mysterious poster. What’s over on the left, Bob? What do you see that I don’t see?

22. The Kramer

Remember Seinfeld? The television show? This is the a poster to hang up so you can remember Seinfeld. Often I’ll wake up in a cold sweat, thinking I have forgotten something, only to glance on my ceiling and see that it was Seinfeld I was looking for all along.

21. Einstein with His Tongue Out

A must for anyone who wants to be licked by an old man but can’t quite bring themselves to make this dream a reality. The next best thing is wetting the tongue on this poster and rubbing up on it a few times a day. Trust me.

20. David Beckham with His Shirt Off

This is a must for any girl or guy to show how cultured they are. “Look at my poster! Do you guys know what soccer is? Probably not. It’s a game they play in ~Europe~.”

19. Giraffes Making Out

Look at these giraffes. Look at them kiss. Put this on your wall.

18. The Periodic Table of Mixology

This is a great thing to put on your dorm room wall so you can look at it while alternating between Natty Ice and Keystone Light.

17. Muhammad Ali Standing over Sonny Liston

This poster is a great substitute for exercising. Quick side note: It would be pretty cool to make a version of this poster where like Mohammad Ali’s muscles sort of bulged out? Like on Goosebumps book? Yeah, that’d be cool. Yeah.

16. “Starry Night”

A must for the student trying to prove that they have heard of what an art is.

15. Bob Marley Looking Slightly to the Right

Couldn’t find what you were looking for on the left, eh, Bob? Well, check out the right and get back to me.

14. An Ice Formation

Yo, but seriously? Fuck liquid. Fuck gas. Best state of water is by FAR a solid. Ice, ice, baby.

13. Guy in a Windy Room

Who left the window open in this room? Those are some gale force winds. Please close the window. Thank you.

12. An Atomic Bomb

This is a good poster for students whose moms would not let them put pictures of weapons on their bedroom walls. Look at me now, Mom. Look.

11. “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt

True story: The first time I saw this in a friend’s dorm, I literally didn’t recognize there was two people in it until I asked, “Why do you have a painting of a big rock on your wall?” after two semesters.

10. Keep Calm and Carry On

This is a good poster for people who only take advice from posters. It is also a good poster for people I do not want to be friends with.

9. Marilyn Monroe Biting her Fingernails

Don’t know why you would put this on your wall — fingernail biting is gross. Probably lots of shellfish/various sauces under those nails.

8. Two Women Kissing

This is a good poster for straight men to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they have never touched a girl.

7. Some MC Escher Bullshit

Yeah, I like art. Yeah, I smoke weed. You ever hear of soccer? I didn’t think so.

6. A Scarface Movie Poster

I don’t really know what to say about this except that I like this movie but I think I would like it more if it were called Scarf Ace and was about people playing poker with scarves on. I don’t know, man. I don’t know. I’m tired.

5. Audrey Hepburn

Always been a fan of breakfast and comically long cigarette holders, always will be a fan of breakfast and comically long cigarette holders.

4. Che


3. Bob Marley Looking Straight into the Camera, Albeit in Mosaic Form

Did you find what you were looking for, Bob? It was me all along? Wow, thanks, Bob.

2. A Poster with Some Reference to Beer Pong

This is the only way to prove that you love the popular drinking game beer pong. If you want to show people you love the popular drinking game beer pong, you need to get this poster, otherwise no one will know that you love the popular drinking game beer pong. Do you love the popular drinking game beer pong? Hmmm, I had no idea. You should probably get a poster. Good news! There is a poster for that. This poster. Or any poster with a reference to the popular drinking game beer pong. You should get it.

1. That One Pink Floyd Poster with All the Butts

Did you expect anything else at No. 1? Come on, now. This one has it all: Pink Floyd, naked women, and the guarantee that you will only ever enjoy one of those in your life because you have this poster on your wall. Man, I miss college.
