The best…dorm-room gear

Emerson Mini Fridge, The Dirt Devil Gator, Flying Alarm Clock, and more

Emerson Mini Fridge
Parents understand that a good student needs to keep “study snacks” close at hand. The door of this portable fridge doubles as a dry-erase board that roommates can use for jotting down notes.

The Dirt Devil Gator
Small quarters and big appliances don’t mix. This cordless, handheld vac tested well when called upon to inhale dirt off bare floors and carpets. It also delivers “plenty of runtime” with every charge.

PB Teen Bath Caddy
A bath caddy can be “a lifesaver” when a college kid has to pad back and forth to a communal shower. This bag provides enough space for shampoo, toilet paper, even flip-flops.

Go Vault
Reduce your worries about sketchy dorm mates: This small safe is a smart place to store valuables. Its security cable can lock it to furniture or a closet clothes rack.

Flying Alarm Clock
For every frosh who hits the snooze button “one too many times”: This clock’s propeller flies away when the alarm sounds, and the noise can’t be stopped until it’s retrieved.
