Congrats on going to college! I've attached a super helpful checklist of what you might need to move into a college dorm. One of the things that I think was very important to have was a water heater because I was able to make coffee, oatmeal, etc. with it and a bedside lamp so I could turn the big light off but still read or work.
Your college Dorm and Residence Life department might also have a list of items they provide for free, such as a dresser, or for lease, such as a microwave. These are different at every school, so I would double check with them as well.
