Guys,

I’ve just found out that my uni room in halls that I’ve been assigned to for September will have a “3/4 bed”. I’ve got a place in liberty hall.

What size bedding do people use for a 3/4 bed???

Anyone know ?!

( I know a 3/4 bed is between a single and a small double but idk whether to buy a single or double DUVET COVER? )

Normally double bed duvet but you need to by 4ft fitted sheets for matress and matress protector.

Thank You for replying!!!! Would a single look too small on a 3/4? Or should I just go for double? I’m not too bothered which I bring I just need to know which to bring hehe.

I just used double everything (including sheets, I just tucked the excess underneath the mattress). A double duvet hung over the bed slightly but a single would look too small in my opinion.

Double. Check when aldi or lidl will have them as often nearer the time they will have students deals like kettles toasters etc for the new students going to university for the first time.

I'd suggest double bedding.
When did you apply and hear back for your accommodation? I applied ages ago with an unconditional and my application isn't even "processing" yet!

Single will be too small, get a double! They fit perfectly for me when I had a 3/4 in first year

Hi There!Well done on getting your place at Uni. My daughters in the same position. 3/4 beds are also known as a small double or it is 4ft in size. Whereas a double is 4ft 6inch and a single is 3 ft, and a king size bed is 5ft. So to recap a 3/4 bed is known as a small double and that's the size you need to look for. I would defo recommend a double duvet, but a small double fitted sheet and mattress protector, as these need to be tightly fitted, to save them sliding off, for comfort and for ease of use. I would also recommend you get two, one to put on bed and use, whilst the others in the wash!! I went shopping this weekend for my daughter and they are quite hard to come by, so I also suggest you look online. I hope this helps and good luck with your studying!
