Some of the newer residence halls being constructed on campuses today are more like an apartment verses the standard dorm room so students are able to use larger beds. In addition, full size and queen size comforters can be used to accommodate the additional height of a raised twin or twin xl bed in your dorm room. Lastly, if you are planning to move into your own apartment verses remaining in the residence hall beyond your freshman year, it may be a wiser investment to purchase a larger comforter or duvet set that can be used in both spaces. Your bed linens such as a your fitted sheet, mattress topper, and mattress pad must be manufactured to fit your twin or twin xl mattress size but you can definitely get away with a larger comforter or duvet and save money!
