What’s the most common size mattress kids take to university for second year
Aug. 02, 2023

The mattress size a student takes to university often depends on personal preference and the size of their dorm room or apartment. Common mattress sizes include Twin, Twin XL, Full, and Queen.

Here's a brief overview of some mattress sizes:

  1. Twin: 38 inches wide by 75 inches long.
  2. Twin XL: 38 inches wide by 80 inches long (an extra 5 inches in length compared to a regular Twin).
  3. Full (Double): 53 inches wide by 75 inches long.
  4. Queen: 60 inches wide by 80 inches long.

Twin and Twin XL mattresses are commonly used for dorm rooms due to their space-saving design and availability of dorm-specific bedding. However, some students may prefer a larger size, like Full or Queen, if their living space allows it and they want a more spacious sleeping area.

Keep in mind that individual universities and dormitories may have specific mattress size restrictions, so it's always a good idea to check with your university or housing department for any guidelines or recommendations regarding mattress sizes. Additionally, roommates may decide to coordinate their bed sizes, which could also influence the choice of mattress size.
