What We Do / Why We Do It / How We Do It...
WHAT? At DormSmart, we pride ourselves in our ability to research and locate quality, affordable and attractive products that can grow with students as they progress from their small dorm room to their first apartment to their first home, smart products that just make sense. College bound students should think of us as their personal shopper.
WHY? Convenience! We provide college bound students access to the best products for campus living; all approved by our team to meet stringent university and college housing standards (i.e. dorm size, UL listed, manufactured to operate safely 110/120v plug, no hot plates or open coil...). All students need to do is shop DormSmart.com then enjoy their last summer before college with friends and family.
HOW? The majority of our inventory ships direct from our US based manufacturers and distributors, reducing our carbon footprint and yours! While ship times may vary for each product, depending on the manufacturer’s shipping policy, we believe it is more important to do our part for the environment for this generation and future generations. We do not mind a little extra work to make a difference for the environment or to make it easier for students to prepare for college life.
Our Business Model = Large Selection of Smart Dorm Room Essentials and Accessories for College Bound Students
Our business model enables us to offer college bound students an extensive selection of quality, affordable, stylish and smart dorm room supplies verses a smaller selection of cheap dorm supplies.
