College Apartment Must Haves

 This post has been sponsored by Brita®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


Hello loves! I'm so excited to be back for my senior year at The University of Texas! Now that I am going into my fourth and final year of college, I have a good understanding of what items are necessities in a college dorm or apartment. I'm so excited to be teaming up with the Brita team for this post because I have been using Brita products since my first dorm freshman year. I hope you enjoy this post about my college apartment must haves.


Having fresh drinking water is a must at college! I absolutely love my Brita Pacifica Water Filtration Pitcher that I picked up at Walmart. I have had a Brita in every college room I've been in over the last four years. The Brita Pacifica is perfect for reducing unwanted chemical tastes and odors from your water while eliminating the need for bottled water. The standard filter inside the Brita Pacifica lasts for two months, but there is also an option for a long last filter that only has to be replaced every six months. This water filter comes in multiple colors, so you could even get one to match your decor! Additionally, Walmart is super affordable and allows you to shop so many college must-haves in one location. You can purchase the same Brita Pacifica as me at the end of this post!

Coffee Maker

This is a must for caffeine addicts like me! Like the Brita, these come in so many different colors, so you can really customize them to your space. I've had this orange one for all four years of college and it's brightened up every kitchen I've been in.

Body Pillow

This is another item that I've had all four years of college! College dorms and apartments can feel a little sterile, and large body pillows help to make your space feel more home-y. It's also perfect to prop yourself up with taking care of homework while laying in bed (which I'm guilty of). This one has multiple pillowcase options, so it's another item that can be customized to your style. 


Cozy Blanket

Tbh, I think I own 4 cozy blankets at this point... but you can never have too many! You never know when you'll need to use a blanket. Not only do I use these in my room if I get cold but they're perfect for when you're just lounging around with friends and you want to feel cozier. They can also be used as great decorative pieces...I love anything that's both fashionable and functional!


I hope y'all enjoyed this post! Be sure to check out the Brita Pacifica at Walmart. Let me know what your college room essentials are!
