At Apartment Therapy, every article we publish is in an effort to help our readers live their happiest, healthiest lives at home. We know how special life in your own space is, and today we’re so excited to share with you a project that hits close to home for all of us. Meet Dorm Therapy, our brand-new destination for college students! You’ll find how-tos, personal essays, roundups, shopping stories, and so much more on Dorm Therapy’s site, TikTok, and Instagram, all aimed at helping students feel at home at school, no matter what their college experience looks like.

Dorm Therapy, which is presented in partnership with Shop with Google, is brought to you directly from the writers and content creators living the experiences they’re writing about. Our team of student contributors spans all sorts of colleges and universities, majors, and locations, and they’re sharing the advice, inspiration, products, and personal stories they want their peers to know about. (We’ve also worked with so many of the incredible teams at Apartment Therapy Media to bring Dorm Therapy to life, and you’ll see every bit of our company ethos pulsing through it at all times.)

In addition to all of the content we’ll be creating and sharing day after day, Apartment Therapy OGs will spot lots of our signature content programs on Dorm Therapy. Fans of our House Tours will be able to find, share, and peek into students’ spaces with our signature Dorm Tours, launching every Monday. (Think you’ve seen small-space solutions? Just wait until you see the incredible ways students are making the most of 228 square feet.) Followers of our Before & After content will find even more inspiration through our Dorm DIYs, which highlight the impressive, creative, and budget-friendly projects students take on to transform their spaces, and we’ll always be on the hunt for more ways to deliver authentic, timely, and useful stories to students. 

We know that college life looks different for everyone, and that’s why you’ll find a range of lived experiences on Dorm Therapy. Whether you’re commuting, getting ready to move on campus for your freshman year, sharing a suite with three other people, or living in your second off-campus apartment, we’ll have something for everyone.

So even if you’re not heading off to school come fall, chances are you probably know someone who is. We’d love it if you shared Dorm Therapy with them. Even more, check out the site — we are so incredibly proud and excited to finally show off what we’ve been working on. And while you’re here, follow Dorm Therapy’s Instagram and check out Dorm Therapy’s TikTok, too. (Oh, and keep your eyes peeled later this month for details about Dorm Therapy’s TikTok contest!)

We love Dorm Therapy and hope you do, too.
