When The Vampire Diaries returns on October 3, school will be back in session for Caroline (Candice Accola) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) — and they'll be back at the bottom of the totem pole as freshmen at Whitmore College.

And like any other show when it ventures into a collegiate atmosphere, we can probably expect some awesome parties, hot guys, no actual classes, and jumbo dorm rooms. Showrunner Julie Plec was on deck to dish on the girls' highly-anticipated college dorm days.

"Look, we can all joke about it, but in order for a scene to look good, you need a lot of space to shoot in — especially when you're a show that shoots on long lenses," Julie told Hollywood Crush recently. "So yes, our dorm room is a little bigger than the dorm room I had in college."

But don't think that Julie and her gang haven't scouted out the perfect dorm room for our Mystic Falls gals, because it sounds like they definitely have. 

"We establish a university that's old and steeped in tradition and it's been around for a while, and the room reflects that. It's got the big arched ceilings and a good, old-world feel to it. So you will laugh, because yes, of course it's a little bit bigger than it should be, but we're proud of it."

What do you think about Elena and Caroline's dorm room? Are you excited about them heading to college? Sound off in the comments below!
