Although we've offered a few tips and tricks for our college aged readers, many of us have long left dorm life. The idea of a "designer dorm room" can seem crazy when all we needed was a few posters and some good friends. See if your room resembles any of the great retro, old school and in some cases, vintage dorm rooms after the jump...

We had so much fun digging through the Flickr archives to find these great dorm rooms. Please note there are a few less than clothed women on a few of the posters/artwork in some of these shots. Not in the "Oh baby!" kind of way, but none the less, we thought it best to throw it out there for consideration before flipping through these at work.

We'd like to thank the following Flickr Members for sharing their fabulous memories with us! If you have time, click through to check out the notes and stories behind these great snapshots. Most can be viewed larger if needs be, we're especially fond of the vintage pin ups in the University of Florida dorms!
