In addition to clothes you should carry comfortable shoes with you. You should take with you clothes for every day wear, gym clothes and shoes, two formal outfits, rainy wear, slippers to wear in the room and a bathing suit.
Like your home a kitchen will not be available for you all the time. You will be eating in a mess or a canteen which follows a time schedule. You need to keep some snacks handy in your dormitory too for emergency. Carry some containers with you for storing snacks, a large bowl, spoon, folk, knife, drinking cups, a coffee mug, salt and pepper shakers, dishes, a bottle opener and a water filtration pitcher. You can also keep a refrigerator or a microwave in your dorm, but you need to check with your college authorities before going in for either of them.
