Frequently asked questions about college dorm bedding.
Did you know that college dorm room Twin beds are longer than regular Twin beds? A Twin XL mattress is standard for most college dorm rooms and residence halls. Since Twin XL beds are made with saving space in mind, it does not offer any more width than a standard twin. However, at 39 in. wide by 80 in. long, Twin XL mattresses are longer in length to give more room to stretch out.
Below are the measurements for the different mattress sizes to help guide you when finding the right bedding.
You may be able to fit a Twin comforter on a Twin XL bed, but be mindful that the length of the
comforter may be short.
The most important measurement to know when purchasing Twin XL bedding for your dorm room mattress is the fitted sheet. If the fitted sheet does not account for these depths, you may run the challenge of keeping the fitted sheet on the bed.
A Twin XL flat sheet is not needed because you don’t need one! The Company Store®’s regular Twin flat sheets are generously sized to fit both types of Twin mattresses. So, to be safe, when purchasing bedding for a Twin XL bed, make sure it fits the size mattress.
When using Twin XL bedding on a Full-size mattress, the comforter and flat sheet will be too small and the fitted sheet will not be able to fit.
According to the measurements above, a Full-size comforter can fit a Twin XL mattress; however, it may be too big and touch the floor on the sides.
Our Twin XL comforters and duvet covers are 70 in. wide by 96 in. long.
