I bought this mattress pad for my daughter who was going off to college. She has found it to be quite comfortable adding an extra layer of padding between her sheets and the dorm mattresses. You could always buy a mattress topper which would be more cushion but this helps too.
Just moved my son into his freshman dorm last weekend. I wondered how all the fitted linens for his twin xl bed were going to fit. You never really know until you try them on, so I kept my fingers crossed that we wouldn't end up stuck with something ill-fitting. I'm pleased to say his Eddie Bauer mattress pad worked out just fine. Fits solidly (no sliding around) and its fluffiness adds a little something to the very basic dorm mattress.
