Back to College Furniture Guide - Beds, Desks & Combos

Back to College Furniture Shopping Guide
Summer is a quite rewarding time for recent high school graduates who have just finished up major exams and achieved significant milestones. Gearing up for the next chapter in life is exciting but also a little scary. (We remember all of the nervous energy involved with college preparation.) Want to simplify the furniture search for dorm and apartment life; consult our handy Back to College Furniture Guide with our best selling and most popular loft beds, bunk beds, desks and study beds for the emerging college student.

Loft Beds with Desks for Dorms and Apartments

High lofts are preferred by college students as they sit high enough off the ground, which is great for two reasons. One, students feel like their sleeping quarters in a shared room is more private with the bed elevated, and, two, there is a lot of space underneath the bed for studying and storing personal items.

Our high loft and ultra high loft study beds are very popular for this reason. The bed sizes range from Twin to Full to Queen. Add a long desk underneath for the best study/sleep combination or use the space for standalone bookcases, dressers, nightstands or smaller desks. Here are some best sellers:

And, keep in mind that all lofts easily customize to the room dimensions, so the ladder entry can reverse and change sides (even sit off the footboard) when needed for the same price.

Single Beds for Dorms and College Students

Lucky enough to get a private dorm room or off-campus apartment? Then sharing and privacy are not quite a concern, so we recommend a single bed with low panel footboards. Try a few different headboard styles out - curved, panel or slat - in your favorite finish - white, chestnut or natural - and create the perfect single bed look!

College Furniture for Students

If opting for a single bed (or bunk bed), maximize the configuration by adding under-bed storage or pullout trundle beds for friends.

And, stand alone desks are always nice! We have the perfect selection for older college students with deep drawers that will hold the massive text books!
