    Matress I had was perfectly fine, the uni put a matress protector on it as well, plus I took my own. You will never be able to fit all you stuff in you car when you go if you have a great big mattress in there!

    Almost all uni's don't allow you to bring your own mattress, nonethless you must bring your own pillow, pillow case, blanket, and bed sheets. I understand that the matresses are not good as they are quite thin followed by the uncomfortableness of it.

    My mattress at uni made the bed SO uncomfortable that I went to the liberty of ordering another mattress that fitted on the top of the standard mattress. It only cost me about 30 quid and made my bed so much more comfortable! Everybody always used to remark on how bouncy it was! :rolleyes:

    My mattress has a covering. I took my own pillow and duvet cover. Can't be bothered with anything else.

    Maybe I should do that. :p:

    I hope they will replace the thin mattresses one day with better ones, however it will cost alot.

    You can get a good mattress protector far cheaper than a good mattress, lol (Says the girl who sells mattresses for her part time job). I mean, you can get a matt for £45 (I'm so sad... I know mattress prices off by heart!), but you can feel the springs. Ick! In any case, it would be a bit of a pig to transport, surely? You can't bend them, for one thing!

    You're thinking of the delightful vinyl ones that hospitals have (where you're more likely to drown in your own sweat from having to sleep on one!!). You can get ones that are made of towelling (again rather warm) or quilted type cotton ones.

    Try Argos, Asda & places like that....

    i imagine lots of halls actually have fire regulations they have to maintain, so you probably wouldn't be allowed to take your own mattress.

    I used a mattress cover at home because I usually get hayfever from all the dust and mites that collect in the mattress. There is really no difference, I have cotton type on tho.
