Linens/Beddings for Residence Hall Rooms

Buy online, pick it up at ISS!

Nobody wants to drag pillows, towels, sheets and comforters when moving in to Residence Halls especially when your travel involves long international flights with extra luggage fees! We will make it easy for you if you order your linens/ beddings online.

Keep in mind that mattresses in all residence hall rooms are size Twin XL which make it difficult to find perfect fitting sheets and bedding at a regular store. All residence hall rooms are equipped with a bed and a mattress, but you are personally responsible to obtain sheets, pillows, blankets etc.

Borrow First, Buy Later!

Remember, sheets you find at a regular store may not fit perfectly to the extra long mattress in your room! But I hear some of you say, "Hey, I'd rather save some $". Fair enough. There are multiple shopping trips scheduled during orientation. If you want to borrow some linens for the first few nights from us, please let us know by filling out this form. Deadline to fill out this form is: August 1 (for Fall) and January 15 (for Spring)

A set includes: a blanket (this is not super warm so please wear warm pajamas and maybe socks to bed), a pillow, a top bed sheet, a bottom bed sheet, a pillow case, a towel and a washcloth. It's not fancy but it's clean!

A borrowed set needs to be returned by 1st day of class. No need to wash them! Nice!
