There’s a good reason a college dorm room first aid kit is on mostly every college packing list you read.

Therefore, you need to ensure you bring one to college because needing a pain reliever, band-aids, cold medication, and so forth isn’t far fetched. Hence it’s important to have a personalized first aid kit on hand for possible emergencies.

First aid kits can easily be purchased. However, making your own kit is better since you’re able to personalize it based on your needs.

This list helps you to create your own college dorm room first aid kit. Thus, you may not require everything on this list.

Furthermore, this list isn’t exclusive either since personalized first aid kits vary based on individual needs.

Therefore, use this list as guidance. However, personalize your first aid kit as much as possible until you are satisfied.
