Dorm Room Bedding Basics

Check with your institution first to determine whether the school-supplied beds are standard or extra-long. Moxii recommends the following for each bed:

  • 1-2 Euros (shams and inserts)
  • 2-3 decorative pillows (shams and inserts)
  • Sleeping pillow (sham and insert)
  • Top sheet
  • Fitted sheet
  • 2 quilts
  • Egg crate for additional cushion from hard mattresses and springs.
  • Zippered allergen mattress protector, guarding against mold, mildew, and bedbugs.
  • Feather topper- (Moxii recommends a down alternative feather bed with baffled channels).
  • Mattress pad to hold everything in place.
