A comfy bed

This is an obvious key to a good night's sleep. Make sure you have a mattress pad on top of the dorm mattress. Also, make sure you have comfy things on your bed that makes it feel as homey as possible. Just because your bed is cute does not mean it is comfortable!

sleeping mask

Sometimes you may want to go to bed early while your roommate wants to study for another couple of hours in the room. Even with all the other lights off, the bright desk lamp may be making it difficult to fall asleep. A sleeping mask that goes over your eyes is the perfect solution to this. It blocks all the light out and blocks out any distractions that may come in the form of other lights.

white noise

It seems like there is always some sort of noise or commotion going on in the dorms, and some sort of white noise can help blur that all out. You can just turn on a fan or put some earbuds in and listen to music or a podcast.
