The Best Slippers for Dorm Life | Minnetonka Moccasin

 For four years, the dorm is your home away from home. Even more, it’s the main hub for sleeping, studying, and socializing. If you’re a freshman or heading back to college, you’ll want to bring along cute and comfortable loungewear and slippers. Plus, with all the traffic the hallways get, it’s a good idea to protect your feet. Our favorite college shoes for girls gathered below are ideal for dorm life. Fun and functional, these slippers for students keep feet warm, protected and offer plenty of versatility.


Stay comfy during those long study sessions and all-nighters when you need to stay focused. Fully lined with soft pile, the Cally slipper is a cozy study buddy. With a thin rubber sole and chic design, you won’t have to worry about ruining your slippers when rushing out to refuel for a campus coffee run. The Cally has style to spare with its moccasin design and fringe accents. Wear with a pair of joggers and your good to go! This versatile slipper is available in several colors – be sure to check out the latest trending colorways in Blush, Cinnamon, and Stone. 


At the dorm, you’ll be making countless trips to the community bathrooms. A plush spa slipper comes in handy to save you from those cold, hard (and maybe not-so-clean) floors. The Olivia is a thong-style slipper made with plush terry cloth. It offers a little bit of luxury with extra features such as a contoured footbed, memory foam insole, and a rubber sole. The Olivia is convenient for your post-shower rituals like brushing your teeth or getting ready for a night out. This one is a must-have!


Tahoe is a comfy slide that gives you versatility. Wear with yoga pants and a hoodie, and you have an outfit for inside and outside the dorm. Tahoe is part of our Home & Away collection, a line of slippers that can transition from inside areas to the outdoors. The secret is in the sole construction, with is heavily treaded for grip. Lined with puffs of pile, you still get the softness of a slipper. Tahoe is made with a combo of suede and sweater fabric, a great way to integrate the patchwork trend into your wardrobe. You’ll be ready for an impromptu floor mixer, food field trip, or a walk around campus to clear your mind (or, you know, running off to class!).


Easy to slide on, Chesney is something you can stash under your bed and grab for your everyday dorm living. Stay warm and cozy whether you’re lounging in your dorm, visiting friends down the hall, or heading to the common area for a movie night. Made with premium suede and constructed with a flexible EVA sole, the high-quality slipper is likely to last you all school year long. The pile lining extends out for an ultra-fluffy trim accent – cute with any of your pajama sets!


Betty is the slipper boot you will probably live in. They work for inside the dorm or when you need something quick to pull on for class. The outer is made with tipped berber, and the inside is pure softness. Feet benefit from clouds of pile lining and padded insoles. Pull on over a pair of leggings and your oversized knits for a cozy campus outfit.

Hopefully this guide gave you some ideas to prepare for dorm living. When packing for college, slippers are essential! Invest in something to last all school year. Our slippers are durable, well-constructed, and versatile enough to fit your college style. Have a great school year!
