Sustainability & Quality

Due to the lack of recycling options and a headache-inducing resale market, most college students end up throwing out their used mattresses and foam toppers. These products are made from non-biodegradable synthetic foam and fibers, and contain hazardous chemicals that can leach into drinking water. Since mattresses don't compact well, they take up a lot of space, compounding the growing space crisis in landfills. Do yourself and the environment a favor by getting in touch with us today to hear about our mattress and topper recycling options!

We deliver at the beginning of the academic term (i.e. the first week of classes).
Please contact us if you are arriving at school very early as we can often work with you to make special arrangements.

No. It is against school policy to remove any furniture. Our bed frame actually converts your twin XL frame into a full XL frame. That means you get to keep all underbed storage!

NO! All furniture is brand new and comes vacuum-sealed.

Not a problem. We rent to any student regardless of if they live on campus or off-campus.

If we deem the issue to be outside of normal wear and tear, we will ask you to replace the part that was broken at cost.

We offer a no questions asked return policy up to a month after renting. Just let us know you don't want it anymore and we will give you a full refund.

Please put wherever you are living next year as your shipping address. If you don't know yet, please put "I DONT KNOW" as address line 1 and the approximate date you will know by for address line 2. This helps us know when to get in touch with you!

Yes. Every Northwestern dorm comes equipped with a twin XL bed frame and mattress. Many students choose to upgrade their room to fit their comfort preferences. We offer an easy and affordable way for all students to upgrade!

About Wildcat Naps

Wildcat Naps is made up of Marisa Hattler (‘20) and Troy Hattler (‘21), siblings and business partners from Los Angeles, CA. Their brother, Cole, serves as a Vice President at Duke University’s own Bull City Beds, and after learning about his experiences and success, Marisa and Troy knew they had to bring their own bed rentals service to Northwestern. Driven, motivated, and passionate about entrepreneurship, Marisa and Troy want to provide their fellow Northwestern students with a more comfortable school experience. At a rigorous institution like NU, students shouldn’t have to deal with a poor night’s sleep on top of an already chaotic schedule. Trade in your low quality KMart futons, uncomfortable dorm chairs, and narrow beds, for a cozy, comfortable full-sized bed.

On campus, Marisa is pursuing a double major in History and Economics, and a minor in French. She is involved with the Institute for Student Business Education, Women in Business, The Daily Northwestern, and Pi Beta Phi. Troy is pursuing an Economics degree, as well as the Kellogg Certificate in Financial Economics. He is involved with Northwestern Lacrosse, Alpha Epsilon Pi, and the Institute for Student Business Education. When Marisa and Troy aren’t busy in their various activities, studying, or working on Wildcat Beds, they love to go to Clarkes for breakfast together!
