Get yourself a microwave cookbook! You would be surprised at the amount of dishes that you can cook in a microwave such as stews and 'bakes'. It will likely take more time than regular cooking, but you can cook up a batch and freeze individual portions for later. The only consideration is making sure you have an area in your room where you can do a bit more meal prep.

If you or your parents have the extra money, you could even get yourself a convection microwave, which is a microwave that can also be used as a regular oven. An electric kettle and toaster would be useful too.

The idea of a crockpot is an excellent one, but the smell of foods cooking for 4-8 hours might be a giveaway (I'm guessing you're technically not allowed to cook in your room?).

gluten-free soups, Amy's burritos and fresh foods, breads and crackers. That is what comes to mind. See if the dorm cafeteria can work with you for preparing things for you, simple things. Maybe frozen meals, soups and fresh things. Good luck.

Artisan Bistro, E-Vol and even Glutino make some good gluten-free frozen meals.  I haven't looked at the nutritional info, but I can't imagine any of these are particularly loaded with bad stuff.  Also, I'd try and get a rice cooker in there if you can.  Someone (on here?) was talking about ways to make meals in a rice cooker by adding eggs and such as it cooks.
