It is important to have all of the right supplies before arriving at the dorm. Arriving at school can be a busy and stressful time so having everything prepared before arrival makes settling in much easier. Some of the key materials to have for a dorm room is the right dorm bedding. The student moving in will want to sleep comfortably on their first night in the dorms so getting there and setting up the bed should be the first step. It is important to find out what size the bed is from the housing authority before buying the bedding. Dorm beds are sometimes twin size but some have full sized beds. Dorm beds also come in extra long sizes for tall people. Once a person knows what size they bed is they can find coordinating bedding that will fit the bed like a glove. Bed sets are usually the easiest way to get all of the bedding that is needed. A bed in a bag usually contains a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, a blanket or quilt and two pillow cases. A bed in a bag is also easy to carry and transport to the dorm as it is all packaged together into a neat case.
