Your college dorm is your home away from home. It’s where you unwind after a long day of classes, study sessions, and workouts. It’s also where you and your roommates watch Gossip Girl, Loki, or Schitt’s Creek for the millionth time. While your siblings may not be down the hall like they used to be, this space can still feel safe and comfortable, thanks to all the decor you have secured. And, when you’re ready, you can show off your adorable space on social media with these dorm quotes for Instagram captions that’ll hype up your new home.
Your high school BFFs will want to see how your personal style has influenced your new space. In fact, they may already be asking if you hung up the tapestry you picked out at Urban Outfitters or put your Animal Crossing-inspired pillow on your bed. In the group chat, you may be taking and sending detail pics of your dorm to show them that the Polaroid from your beach trip has a prime spot on your desk or that you tried out a hack from TikTok for storing your snacks. On Instagram, you’ll give them the grand reveal and point out the cozy items that put you at ease, like a small bookshelf of journal and travel books, or a colorful set of string lights.
For that grand reveal, you need to be more focused on working the angles of your space than coming up with a caption to go with your post. For that reason, grab one of these captions for your dorm room pics now so you’re ready to show off your new home sweet home on social media later on.
