21 Things That Happen While Living In A College Dorm

There will be that one asshole who never flushes.

Posted on

1. Someone will sleep in your bed without your permission.

You will go away for the weekend and when you come back your sheets will smell like Axe.

2. There will be one floor that inexplicably always smells like shit.

And it will probably be the boys' floor (sorry).

3. Someone will leave you a present in the shower.

And you will spend your days searching for the long-brown-haired culprit.

4. You will definitely hear someone* throwing up in the communal bathroom.

*that someone might be you.

5. There will be one room (maybe yours) that always smells like weed.

It will also be the room the RA makes the most visits to.

6. Someone (hopefully not you) will find a mouse in their room.

And the shrill screams will echo throughout the halls until it's gone.

7. The kitchen will become a graveyard for stolen plates from the cafeteria.

And some people will start throwing plates away to avoid washing them.

8. You will learn to make the most of the very little space you have.

Oh great! We have one dresser and one closet for three people? Perfect!

9. You will realize your desk is for show and it's impossible to actually study in your room.

Sometimes your roommate doesn't understand that wearing your headphones means you actually don't want to talk.

10. There will be one person who leaves passive-aggressive (or just aggressive) notes everywhere.

*runs away and hides*

11. Someone will steal your food out of the fridge.

And you might steal someone else's food as a form of immature revenge.

12. There will be one person who needs to leave the water running while they use the bathroom.


13. Your laundry will get taken out of the machine and your underwear will be put on display for everyone to see.

Well, excuse me for getting my laundry four minutes after the buzzer went off.

14. There will be one room that leaves their door open and blasts music long after welcome week.

Don't you EVER want to be alone???

15. There will be that asshole who never flushes.


16. You'll probably get written up by an RA (and that's OK).

Consider getting written up a rite of passage.

17. You'll have a fire drill at the most inopportune time.

And you'll probably see your crush while you're wearing your retainer.

18. The recycling will pile up.

And it will mostly be filled with boxed wine.

19. You will run into someone sleeping in an unconventional place.

20. You will probably get sexiled and end up in the common room or sharing a twin-size bed with your best friend.

21. And you will order (but probably not regret) pizza at 2 a.m.

One thing is for sure: Once you enter those dorms, you won't go out the way you came in.
