    This is a perfect item for a shared dorm room. I got it for my son and it allows him to secure his laptop and other personal items (chocolate stash!). He also uses it as a desk when he wants to sit on his bed and study. It fit perfectly at the base of his XL Twin bed.
    When I was in college – many years ago – this wouldn’t have even crossed my mind. But now these kids can have up to 4 roommates in a single room! You may trust your roommates but it’s hard to control who they bring into your room.
    This is a GREAT practical graduation gift. Great quality. Will last your college career no problem.

    My son’s bunk trunk has been a great dorm room addition. In the third week of school a student was caught after stealing from 9 different dorm rooms. Needless to say, none of my son’s items were touched. it makes a great charging station and a great secure place to store valuables while he is away at school. I would highly recommend this item.

    Wonderful concept and excellent customer support, but remember YOUR MEASUREMENTS before ordering! Amid the rush to outfit a dorm room for the first time, buy a new PC, and beat the clock during COVID shipping to buy an amazing Bunk Trunk we didn’t think to measure. Totally my bad. Got to move in during under COVID pressures all proud to set up the trunk and the PC didn’t fit by a fraction 🙁 🙁 🙁 That was major purpose of buying. Other than that, it makes a nice alternative drop down work area during these times of online classes and will secure smaller items, but bummed new PC can’t be locked.

      Karen was willing to work with us to develop a solution to get the laptop to fit and we came up with the laptop wedge. If you have a larger laptop like a 15 inch Dell the wedge may be the solution for you, just select that option at check out.

    We could not be more pleased! Ordering and delivery were on time, product quality is top notch. In fact, we were very surprised by the amount of storage inside. Fabulous addition to our daughter’s dorm room; not only for security purposes in storing/charging electronics, but it’s serving as her primary place to study as well as a TV monitor holder. Definitely worth the investment! Thank you for your incredibly designed product!

    Works great! Had some minor issues with fitting it under a light fixture, but it worked out. Nice place to keep my valuables/other important stuffs. The front door doesn’t quite work as a desk, as it has a large bump for the lock right in the middle, so that gets in the way a little. Other than that, no complaints!

    If you can only get your scholar one gift, this should be it. We got this for our grandson as a graduation and he just loves it. It is easy for him to lock his things up in a moments notice. The other kids would like one for their bedrooms at home.

    Great buy! After reading a recommendation on the SMU Parent’s Facebook Page, I looked into and was impressed with the functionality, ease of set up, the size and the cost. My son loves it. His bunk is raised all the way up, so he loves that he has what he needs without having to go up and down the ladder often. I highly recommend this purchase. I also loved that there is a YouTube video on how to set it up!

    Ok. Not only is this prduct the perfect solution for any dorm room, but I would be remiss in not explaining their customer service.

    I had placed a last minute order for delivery in less than a week as my daughter was surprisingly called up to her campus for the Spring semester. Bunk Trunk sent a unit out immediately. However, it was tied up at UPS because I had it the wrong zip code. Bunk Trunk immediately got on the phone with UPS who couldn’t find the unit. Bunk Trunk sent me another unit on 2 day delivery at no charge and dealt with the mess I created at UPS so that I could take my daughter up to college. In a world of terrible customer service, the owner of Bunk Trunk worked with me directly and demonstrated at every turn how important my patronage was. The product is amazing, the people are even more so.
