The Best Food Items to Keep in Your Dorm Room

Every student in college has to face the problems of not relying on parents to provide food. Living in the dorms can be especially challenging because you don’t have so many options for food as you would living off campus. There will not always be time to make it to the dining hall for meals three times a day. There will also be times when late night hunger hits and nothing will be open at that hour. This means that it is a great idea to keep certain food stocked in your dorm room at all times!

Especially if you were blessed with a Keurig, the Cup of Noodles is a quick and tasty treat that can be spiced up with some hot sauce or soy sauce packs from Panda Express. It’s portable and easy to carry to your walk to class. It also doubles as a hand warmer in the winter months.

A must-have for an 8 a.m. class because let's be honest, how often are you going to make it to the dining hall so early? There are easy to grab on the go and can be carried in your backpack. You can get the multipacks to switch it up and not have to eat the same flavor every day.

If you have a mini fridge, you can keep it in there along with your bread. You can even eat it with only cheese or by itself if you are running low on supplies. Ever heard of fried bologna? You will now.
