MATTRESSES AND LINENS
Most residence halls have standard twin size mattresses measuring 36" by 76" by 7". Both standard size and extra-long twin sheets will fit the mattress.
Beginning the Fall of 2019 the Office for Residence Life will be working to standardize mattresses in all residence halls and apartment buildings to "extra long" length. All rooms and apartments in our new buildings in The Commons will have "extra-long" mattresses. Students assigned to buildings with "extra long" mattresses will be notified via email when housing assignments are confirmed during the last week of July.
For students assigned to buildings where "extra long" mattresses are not standard, Residence Life has a limited supply of "extra-long" mattresses measuring 36" by 80" by 7", which are available upon request and based on need. Requests should be limited to those over 6' 2" in height. These mattresses require extra-long twin-sized sheets. Students can request an extra-long mattress when they complete the housing application.
Residence Life continues to partner with Our Campus Market to offer students and families an easy way to shop for bedding, carpets and room accessories. Please visit www.vil.ocm.com to place an order directly with OCM. Bedding and accessories will be shipped to your home. Carpets will be delivered to your room prior to your arrival.
Laundry facilities are located in all residence halls, except St. Rita's Hall (residents of St. Rita's Hall have access to laundry in nearby Alumni and Corr Halls). Each load (wash and dry) costs $1.50. Students use their Wildcard to pay for laundry - No need to bring quarters! VLaundry allows students to view the current status of every laundry facility on campus, reserve specific machines, and find out when the machines in your building will be available.
Students also have the option of signing up for an off-site laundry program. Villanova has partnered with Tide Cleaners to offer this service.
