Sustainability & Quality

Due to the lack of recycling options and a resale market, most college students end up throwing out their used mattresses and foam toppers. These products are made from non-biodegradable synthetic foam and fibers, and contain hazardous chemicals that can leach into drinking water. Furthermore, since they don't compact well, they take up a lot of space, further compounding the growing space crisis in landfills. Do yourself and the environment a favor and rent a bed today!

We deliver at the beginning of the academic term (i.e. the first week of classes).
Please contact us if you are arriving at school early as we often need to work with you to make special arrangements.

It stays exactly where it is. The roomie super topper converts the twin XL provided by the school into a full XL or 46-inch wide mattress.

We try to pick up as late as possible during finals weeks, but the rental only does not last through the end of finals.

Not a problem. We rent to any student regardless of if they live on campus or off-campus.

If we deem the issue to be outside of normal wear and tear, we will ask you to replace the part that was broken at cost.

We offer a no questions asked return policy up to a month after renting. Just let us know you don't want it anymore and we will give you a full refund.

Just put I DONT KNOW for shipping address, and just put campus's city, state, and zip. We will get in touch to update your shipping address closer to move-in.

If at any point Bates has to shut down on-campus residences, orders will be prorated.
