Settling into a new dorm room can be tricky for any college student, but learning to convert one into an effective study space is even more difficult. CliffsNotes.com suggests several ways that a parent or student can maximize the space.

First, it's important to outline the functions of each part of the dormitory. There are three essential spots, and these should be clearly divided to give each one a unique feel.

A refrigerator can identify a small kitchen area, where students can prepare snacks and meals, while a mirror should be the focal point of a grooming space and a bureau.

The sleeping area should offer the resident a comfortable bed and quiet environment, and may also double as a study space if there is enough room for a desk. If there isn't, the news source suggests lofting the bed, so that extra space is made available for storage.

Creating a quiet spot for sleeping and studying can be difficult in a loud, college atmosphere, but noise reduction shades can help eliminate outside sounds and are available in many different patterns and colors, so they can add a pleasing aesthetic to the room as well.
