Frequently Asked Questions


What size are the beds in the halls?

Carleton College uses bunkable beds with an 80" (extra long) twin mattress. Most of our mattress dimensions are: 36"x80"x8". When students arrive, the beds will not be bunked, they will be positioned at about 19" above the floor. If students would like to bunk their bed, the pins are stored in the top drawer of the dresser. Custodial staff in the buildings may have some in storage if there are no pins in the room.
