For the simplest plant to keep in a dorm or office, try an air plant terrarium.

These plants are perfect for placing in a vase or hanging bowl. They require little sunlight and because they have no roots need only to be soaked or misted about every week to stay healthy. Just place them with whatever decorative stones or sand matches your room for an instant conversation piece.
Another very simple houseplant is the marimo moss ball.
|Use sand for an exotic look|
An alternative to fish tanks that require regular time consuming maintenance and are difficult to transport during breaks, marimo terrariums are the aquatic version of a pet rock (and a little more interesting to look at!) Marimo are happiest out of direct sun in cool, shadowed areas. Just replace the water every other week and run the moss under cold water, gently squeezing out the old water like a sponge. That's it!
Of course, if you want something a little more traditional, you can't go wrong with a spider plant.
|Be warned: spider plants grow fast!|
Spider plants are ubiquitous in office spaces, and for good reason. They grow quickly, don't need large amounts of sun, and propagate i.e sprout miniature 'pups' that can be cut and potted separately. Water it as you would any potted plant, and remove the pups as they grow.
Another leafy plant that does well in dorm or office spaces is philodenron or pothos plants.
