Hear that? It’s the sound of pencils being sharpened, books being cracked open and leaves crackling. That’s right—it’s back to school season! Whether you’re going to college for the first time or heading back for your final semester, gearing up for the new school year is an exciting time. There are friends to connect with, stimulating professors to learn from, football games to cheer at and study abroad programs to scour. However, this anticipatory time also carries its stresses. To make the transition easier, the Mattress Professionals at Sleepy’s have prepared the following back to school sleep basics you need to refresh your dorm room for the best school year ever. Let today’s lesson plan begin!.

Syllabus: From plush pillows and ultra-soft sheet sets to cozy comforters and a wonderfully convenient bed-in-a-box, Sleepy’s makes studying stylish. Find all of your dorm room essentials right here.



Head of the Class

After working your brain, give your head a rest with a pillow from Sleepy’s. With support for your head, neck and shoulders, a pillow is the ultimate bed for your head. And if you’re a side, back or stomach sleeper, there are position pillows to suit your personal sleep style.


Co-ed Comforters & Duvets

Settle into cozy study sessions with a style that suits you—because studying should be comfortable! Sleepy’s carries a selection of plush, soft and fluffy comforters and complete duvet sets to transform your dorm room into a haven of relaxation.


Study Between the Sheets

Sheet sets aren’t just for sleeping. And if you’re planning to go to a toga party, we recommend buying extra. Featuring supremely soft materials and moisture-wicking technology to keep you dry, Sleepy’s has sheet sets for all your bedding needs. So put on some low-key tunes while hitting the books, and slip into the comfort of decadently soft sheets.



Since you’ll be opening boxes that are stuffed with clothes and school supplies, here’s one more item to unbox—your bed! No offense to the flimsy dorm mattresses, but Sleepy’s features three fully compressible mattress options (called ZuZu) that expand into the bed of your dreams right before your eyes. We all know that your bed is every student’s all-time favorite college companion, so it might as well be comfortable.


Straight A Mattress Protectors

When it comes to protecting your new mattress, Sleepy’s has you covered. Choose from a selection of mattress protectors to keep your bed clean. Mattress protectors guard against spills and allergens, so you don’t need to worry about spilling coffee in bed while cramming for that 8 a.m. exam.


Teacher’s Pouf

Like the latest Game of Thrones plot twist, poufs are all the rage. If you’re looking to incorporate more seating into a small space, ahem, your dorm room, cotton poufs are the perfect seating solution. This trendy piece instantly adds a pop of style so you can make your dorm room feel more like you. Shop sleepys.com for one that is filled with Thermo Cole Balls for a soft, plush feel you and your friends will enjoy.


Lighten Up

And not just during finals…we offer a selection of lamp styles and designs so you can create the perfect ambiance in your dorm room. Whether you’re getting ready for class or settling in for a night of studying, lighting is everything, so make sure the mood you’re going for is just right.


Storage Studies

Dorm rooms are notoriously small, and New York apartments are notoriously smaller. Whether you’re going to live on or off campus, gain peace of mind with free delivery and save space with Sleepy’s incredible storage solutions! A nightstand or footboard with drawers is a convenient way to stow away blankets, clothes, books and more.


With the right sleep necessities, getting ready for the new school year is an autumn breeze. Sleepy’s wants to provide everything you need for a good night’s sleep so when you’re done hitting the books, you can hit the hay in style and comfort.
