How Long is a Twin XL Bed?

Twin XL Mattress Dimensions


twin xl size bed dimensions longer than a standard twinAbout 90% of all college dorms use Twin XL size beds. The longer XL mattress is the same narrow width as a standard Twin mattress to allow for greater flexibility in the small dorm rooms but it is 80 inches long allowing taller young adults to sleep comfortable in a full length bed. Twin XL beds have dimensions of 39 inches wide by 80 inches long. Queen and King size mattresses are also 80 inches long, while Twin and Full size mattress are shorter. College dorm mattresses are usually 8 to 10 inches in height.

Finding The Right Length Sheets For Twin XL

Most Twin XL size sheets will fit mattresses 12 inches deep (tall) or more. If you are concerned that your residence hall mattress is not very comfortable and would like to add a mattress pad topper to make it feel more comfortable you should allow for another 1 or 2 inches in height that your Twin XL fitted sheet will need to cover. If you are adding a waterproof mattress protector these are usually thin enough so you do not have to take them in account when determining how deep your fitted extra long twin sheet will need to be.

Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
