College dorm room chairs are notorious for being uncomfortable and uninviting. In fact, after sitting on one for a few hours, your butt really hurts even if you have a proper posture.
Now I am not saying, having a proper posture is useless. In fact, a proper posture can help minimize uncomfortable sitting positions. Therefore if your dorm room chair is very uncomfortable to alleviate the situation first start by sitting up, sitting straight, with your feet on the floor.
While doing this won’t cushion your butt it will definitely help reduce the strain on your back and neck thereby slightly alleviating the situation.

How To Make College Dorm Room Chairs Comfortable and Inviting
Personally, I rarely used my dorm chair – my butt just wasn’t having it. Instead, I used the bed 99.9% of the time for everything sitting related including homework, reading and studying.
While it worked out fine, in the end, it wasn’t the best solution especially considering how easy it was to be less productive due to inadequate lightening, the strain on my back and neck while reading sitting upright, or on the contrary, being too comfortable and falling asleep.
