Creating an oasis out of a dorm room is no easy feat. College newbies share close quarters with people they've never met before, rooms come equipped with lifeless furniture, and storage solutions can be in short supply. But taking time to properly set up your dorm is an important step in the moving process—creating a space that reflects your unique style can transform your new digs into a cozy home.

When shopping for dorm decor, choosing versatile pieces is key. And because you'll most likely be moving out at the end of the spring semester, you should consider chic, timeless items that can work in any room. Luckily, Target offers a large selection of stylish bedding, furniture, rugs, and wall art that you can use to upgrade your space. We've rounded up our favorite pieces that cost less than $100 so that you can spruce up your dorm without breaking the bank.
