Linens & Bedding Essentials

These linens are made to last for your entire time at Boise State. Unsure of your mattress size, bed heights, etc.? See our page on bed sizes and height adjustments.

Use SwakU to help you shop by ordering everything you need for move-in and ship it to home or have it shipped directly to campus for move-in day. Sit back and relax while others travel from store to store!

The Residential Housing Association (RHA), a student-led organization, partners with SwakU to help you plan ahead in furnishing your new home, and a portion of the sales support student leadership development, and large-scale events in our residential communities. Learn more about RHA.
