big van on campus

Similar to camping, campus life is a matter of focusing on the basics to survive the elements…of academia. And being prepared for just about anything—within the smallest of spaces and budgets—takes some research and creativity.

As mini-vans are packed to haul students back to college, would you believe some bring chandeliers!? But have you ever thought how one could transform a dorm into a home away from home?

Instead of a conventional bed, consider lubi. It can be used as a bed, a sofa, and opens up to a crash-pad for road-trip friends. Claim your space with Flor tiles around the bed—buy only what you need and remember they’re replaceable and eco-friendly. On top of the bed, organic cotton sheets are a no-brainer.

The trig desk is a basic design that will mix effortlessly with roommates’ furniture, and with its bungee cord construction the studio desk chair is comfortable into the wee hours of all-nighters. To maximize space, consider air space. Array bookcases stack textbooks, towels, and hoodies 60” high within a 14-square inch footprint!

If you only have space to store one item from the kitchen—make it a silo mug. It’s generous size is perfect for caffeinated drinks, chili after the kitchen’s closed, and yogurt with granola at midnight.

Not only are bamboo towels eco-friendly, they’re anti-bacterial…a major safety feature in dorm showers!

CB2 products will last much longer than a school year, so the quality and versatility from dorm room to apartment or house is a smart way to go green affordably. For example, the items mentioned total less than $1500. but post-graduation, their future’s priceless.
