Dorm Lighting That’s Multitalented and Cost Efficient

Dormitories require quality lighting that can serve multiple needs. Incorporating ceiling-mount, wall-mount and undercabinet fixtures will deliver layers of light that support a variety of activities. Dorm lighting should also be high in efficiency and low in maintenance to decrease operation costs. Long-lasting, energy-efficient LED fixtures make ideal college dorm lights. And in study rooms, hallways and other common spaces, occupancy sensors that dim or turn off lights when the space is vacant help increase efficiency and reduce costs.


College Dorm Lighting That’s Smart for Students and Schools

Dormitories need to look good and work hard. A college dorm room should be comfortable, but it’s also a multifaceted space that accommodates everything from long study sessions to hanging out with friends. Dorm lighting should be as versatile as the space while minimizing energy use in the process, including shutting itself off when no one is there.

For dorm lighting that makes everyone — students and school administrators — happy, choose:

  • Lighting designs that do not conflict with building aesthetics
  • Multiple luminaire types for versatile, layered light levels
  • Controls that turn off lights when space is vacant for energy savings

It’s important to choose dorm lighting that is durable, able to withstand many semesters of student residents moving in, moving out. Vacancy controls are especially effective in dorm rooms to ensure lights aren’t left burning for hours while the room is unoccupied – because we all know typical college students are in the habit of leaving lights on when they’re gone. Since this is a home away from home, design aesthetics are more important in these spaces. Choose lighting with a more residential feel to enhance comfort.
