Frequently Asked Questions

A study by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine found a direct correlation between students’ quality of sleep and their grades. Given the importance of sleep on our health and well-being, we believe every college student should consider investing in a memory foam mattress topper for their dorm bed. Placing a 2-4 inch topper on your dorm room mattress is a quick and cost effective solution to getting a good night’s sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions

Students have to provide their own bed sheets and comforter for their dorm room bed, so double check what mattress size you have before making a purchase. A lot of students save money by bringing old ones from home or purchasing a complete Twin XL bedding set.

Frequently Asked Questions

Twin and Twin XL beds use standard (20” x 26”) pillows, but a lot of students prefer the additional size of a queen (20” x 30”). Another popular alternative is using a single king (20” x 36”) pillow instead of two standard or queen pillows.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll need to check with your university to see if they provide a night stand and lamp, and if so, whether each roommate receives their own. If your dorm room only has a single night stand and lamp, you should contact your roommate and discuss how you plan to share the area. Students who want their own can suggest splitting the cost with their roommate to accommodate both parties.

Frequently Asked Questions

A common problem students experience is power outlets not being within arms reach of their bed or while studying on campus. The best way to deal with outlet problems is to invest in a 6 or 10 foot extended phone charger, preferably with a lightning cable and braided nylon. Whether you’re in the library, somewhere on campus, or in your dorm room, we guarantee there will come a time when an outlet is out of reach for a standard charger.
