It's almost time for university classes to begin once again, and many students are going to live on campus for the rest of the year. Trying to transfer PC gaming equipment to and from different dorm rooms or other locations can be a pain, but thankfully, the market is full of PC gaming accessories that are easy to travel with and won't be a hindrance to you at all during your time at university. Here are the ones we recommend the most.

Magnetic headset mount
This genius tool is a small magnetic puck that can be attached to any metallic surface, allowing you to hang your headset over the top. In addition, you can wrap cables around the groove in the center, too.
These compact speakers don't look like much, but they sound surprisingly good for their size, and they're super easy to take with you on the go. All you need to get them to work is an open USB port.
