How to Get Here

Residence Hall Linens and Dorm Bedding Program

Specially-sized sheets, blankets and comforters are necessary in some of the residence halls on the Gardner-Webb University campus. These residence halls have extra-long mattresses, which are more than 76 inches long, so that all students will be as comfortable as possible. That’s why Gardner-Webb University has been offering the Residence Hall Linens Program for 18 years.

We want to make sure every student has the right XL bedding for move-in. Guaranteed to last until graduation, our wide selection of custom-sized linens is certain to fit every bed on campus. In addition, we also provide a variety of other residence hall room must haves, including extra-long comforters, extra-long mattress pads, extra-long thermal blankets, pillows, storage solutions and anything else you will need. Click here to place your order!

Loft Kits

The University no longer sells Loft Kits from the bookstore. If you are still looking to raise your bed, we would encourage purchasing a bed riser from a local store, online OR building your own. Please contact Housing and Residence Education if you have questions on how to do this.
