Among the steadily growing list of dorm room must-haves a college student must have packed and ready to go, a comfortable twin mattress topper is at the very top of our list. Considering the stiff or creaky old dorm-issue mattress, do we really need to elaborate?
Sure, it's important to have one of the best single-serve coffee makers on hand, ambitious to bring an air-fryer (if your dorm approves it), or paying attention to the details with some peel and stick wallpaper ( in case you need any dorm room ideas). But when it comes down to it, the best topper will make your room cozy and tailor your dorm-issued bed just to your needs. Even better, you don't need to spend a fortune to find comfort. We rounded up seven mattress toppers under $150 that will suit a range of sleep habits. Don't delay, as school is just around the corner, and stock on some of these are really starting to dwindle.
After that, be sure to pick up one of the best mattress protectors, especially since that dorm-issued bed might just be older than you, and to protect yourself from bed bugs, potential irritants, and more.
