College Bedding Makes a Great Gift

If you have a friend or family member who is currently living in a dorm, you might want to consider buying college bedding the next time you need to buy the person a present. Whether the gift is for Christmas, Chanukah, a birthday or a “just because” occasion, college bedding is a useful, practical and fun present for students of all ages.

College bedding can include anything from a set of extra long twin size sheets to cozy comforters. Students living in dorms don’t usually change their sheets as frequently as they should, but it’s usually not out of laziness or lack of laundry quarters. Most students simply don’t have more than one set of sheets!

When money is tight, as is the case with many college students, it can be hard to set aside money to buy college bedding. When the choice is between buying food or buying college bedding, just about everyone would spend their last few dollars getting something to eat. As a result, few students have more than one set of extra long twin sheets.

Before buying a loved one a new set of college bedding, it’s important to note the difference between standard sheet sizes and their XL twin sheet counterparts. Most colleges don’t keep standard twin sized beds in their dorms, because students tend to be too tall (or just too big) for the beds. Since full sized beds would be more expensive and take up significantly more room in the tiny dorms, they opt for extra long twin beds instead.

Thankfully, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of the right sized college bedding in stores. You can find college bedding online or retailers such as Target, Walmart, and Bed, Bath & Beyond. If you can’t find a print or thread count that you like, a good source is TwinXL.com. Just remember, you’re not looking for a regular twin size, you need extra long twin size for college bedding!

Another thing to consider before purchasing college bedding is the climate of the student’s location. If your loved one is going to college in the North East, for example, you might want to consider getting flannel extra long twin sheets – they’ll be warmer in the winter than standard cotton sheets. Conversely, if the person is in college in Hawaii, you might want to go for cooler sheet options.

Dorms Housing Problems

For college students, having a safe, comfortable place to live is an essential part of being able to focus and do good work in school. But whether it's a convenient on-campus dorm or an off-campus apartment, student housing presents challenges that students need to consider before they decide where to live each semester.  One of the clearest problems in student housing is the need students have to find places to live that are close to campus. On-campus dormitories and apartments offer one solution, but many larger universities have so many students that auxiliary campuses and buses are the only way to provide enough accessible housing.  High demand for student housing near urban campuses or large schools may cause real estate prices to rise, making nearby apartments and rental houses unaffordable for students. Off-campus housing also places the burden of paying for utility service and commuting to and from campus on the students themselves. For students who take ou
