Dorm “Kitchen” Essentials

Only in the mood for a small snack? Don’t feel like leaving the comfort of your room? No worries! Here are a few dorm essentials that are perfect to have on-hand at all times.

Peanut Butter/Nut Butter

No need to refrigerate AND it goes well on practically anything. Spread on bread, apples or bananas… or if you’re feeling it, go crazy and eat a spoonful straight out of the jar!

Cheese Sticks

Keep a pack in your fridge for a quick, easy and protein-filled snack.

Microwave Popcorn

Great for an impromptu movie night—or any other time!


A perfect option when you don’t have time for a full-on breakfast—my personal favorite is the pineapple flavored Chobani Greek yogurt.


Small, easy to peel, and delicious—and as a bonus, no need to refrigerate!

Hummus and Pita Chips

This is one of my all-time favorite dorm snacks. Both healthy and filling, you can’t go wrong—plus, you can try different kinds of hummus, such as red pepper or pine nut.

Easy Mac

While not the healthiest option, admit it, we all do crave mac ‘n cheese here and there. Just fill with water and microwave for 3 minutes, and there you have it!

Protein Bars

Another good breakfast alternative for when you’re short on time.

Whether you’re running late, low on Wiscard funds, or simply don’t want to get up, look no further than these basic items to keep stocked in your dorm.
