We know, we know. College is about learning, not fixating on your heinous dorm room walls. And while incoming first year students definitely have bigger things to worry about… can’t they do that from the comfort of a well-decorated dorm room

Granted, some universities have more stringent rules about decorating than others, so take the below advice with a grain of salt while reading through the rulebook to ensure you aren’t racking up any violations. But between temporary wallpaper and cool accessories
, there’s a lot you can do to spruce up a bland dorm room wall. No painting required.
