I'm a newly employed dorm teacher. Most students have brought too many things to keep their rooms tidy. What rules will work well? ?

    Limits on amounts of things, the rest is confiscated and stored until they leave, you can let them pick what gets taken but they are only allowed so many pairs of shoes, etc.

      Thank you again. We can do that for new students who haven't arrived yet. The problem is how we can convince the students already in the dorm. Most of them are international students who can't go home when they want, and the longer they stay in the dorm the more things they keep.

    Discuss with your co-workers or senior teachers and suggest some boundaries to set. Do it nicely.

    You don’t provide the age level; it makes a difference.

      Thank you! The youngest 13 and the oldest 19. Most of them are around 17. They are all  girls. They want to bring lots of clothes and cosmetics, sometimes musical instruments,too. but the rooms are small and are shared with 4 people. They hardly have their private space.
