With some university students returning to campus and others studying remotely this fall, Walmart teamed up with Complex to create four regional vignettes representing its College Shop. Whether you're back in the dorms or learning from home, these rooms show you how to personalize your living space and maximize your efficiency for academic success and even a bit of fun.

For the West Coast Techie Studying From Home

America’s tech talent thrives on the West Coast. Whether you’re a California native or a college transplant, you’re going to want to keep that West Coast vibe flowing while you’re studying from home this fall. And that means not only stocking your room with technology like a great laptop and utilitarian router, but also leaving plenty of space for health and hygiene. Life is about balance, after all.

So we packed this room to the rafters with all the tech, fitness, and fun that would fit. From HP’s dynamic Pavilion laptop, which boasts a 128 GB solid state drive for maximum power and portability, to a Fitbit Versa 2 that reads your REM sleep and literally tells you how healthy you are, the West Coast Techie’s room melds computing capacity with wellness. We even included a phone sanitizer that doubles as an aromatherapy diffuser, because in today’s world, health has many meanings and you’re going to want to cover them all.
