  • Horizon Round Crunch Can ($20): The faded ombré exterior on this collapsible hamper not only looks better than the mesh alternative, but will also keep your skivvies out of sight.
  • Gold Playing Cards ($15): While flash cards might be more scholastic, these will come in handy for those much-needed study breaks.
  • White-Framed Mirror ($6): Hang this slim mirror on the inside of your closet door to ensure you're all set from head to toe.
  • Turkish Turquoise Striped Fouta Towel ($45): These towels not only look and feel luxe, but also can be folded and stacked in tiny quarters thanks to their bulk-free form.
  • Acrylic Bed Tray ($80): Use this to hold that hot laptop while pulling an all-nighter in bed.
  • Accordion Folder ($48): Keep paperwork organized and at the ready with this eye-catching file.
  • Wire Pencil Cup ($35): Pretty blue tones will add a pop of color and pattern to a lackluster desk.
  • Kimono Jemina Robe ($85): Slip into something beautiful and comfortable for those trips to and from the communal showers.
  • Alarm Dock ($38): This dock turns your iPhone into a cool, midcentury-inspired alarm clock while it charges.
  • Modern Clip Lamp ($59): The small scale, focused lighting, and clip attachment let you easily move your study spot from your desk to your bed.
