Residence Life works with select outside vendors to provide additional services for Western Michigan University students. These vendors rent or sell common items students have in their rooms.
If you’re thinking of carpet, here’s a way to make it worry-free. Order your carpet online from College Carpets by Aug. 17, and it will be in your room when you move in ready for you to unroll. Eight different colors and a variety of sizes tailored to our residence halls are available. You can also order a WMU spirit mat in a variety of shapes and styles! Prices vary by size.
Instead of trying to pack a futon, you can order your futon online. Order by Aug. 11 and it will be waiting in your room when you arrive. The frame and six-inch pad are $229.99, and the futon fits under both WMU loftable furniture and Bedloft rented lofts. Just check with your roommate so you don’t end up with two!
You’ll need twin extra-long linens for WMU’s beds. Shop around and compare prices, or take advantage of the variety of packages or individual items available at Residence Hall Linens. Order deadline is Aug. 11.
