In this article, the author explores and weighs all the options in choosing furniture for student housing. The first step in acquiring or upgrading residence hall furniture is to research. The Internet and colleagues on campus or at other institutions are options for gathering information. After researching product choices, administrators need to consider options such as grades of fabrics, versatility of products, and the use of an installation service. Also, a college education is a sizable investment for students, and it is important that the furniture they have in their residence halls is worthy of that investment. Durability is the key to getting longevity out of products. Hardwood items may cost more upfront, but will be worth it in the end.
