Our story

Sleepyhead is the college dream team that believes great sleep unlocks student potential

No bad nights

A great education doesn’t always come with a great mattress — a fact I quickly realized during my first days in college housing. I knew there must be a way to transform that worn-out dorm bed into a comfy place to lay my head. That’s when Sleepyhead was born, the mattress topper brand tailored to college students.

Creating comfort

To us, comfort doesn’t just mean a longer night’s sleep, but the peace of mind that can come along with it. Sleepyhead toppers are made with advanced memory-foam that is infused with sleep-inducing properties like copper and gel.

Our toppers come in college-specific sizes, have a good-till-graduation warranty, and provide a washable cover that keeps college germs out and brings the comfort of home in.

Pioneering the industry

The days of egg crate toppers are over. We know there are many options out there for better sleep, so we are constantly seeking to provide new levels of excellence for college sleep.

That means inventing new materials, expanding partnerships, and collaborating with college students to create exactly what they want and need.

Empowering students

We empower college students to make the most of their potential by giving them the opportunity to dream big and rest easy. Unlike our competition, we are uniquely noted for investing in students' futures through innovative sleep products and a commitment to making a positive impact.

Trust is everything, and that's why over 1,000 universities call Sleepyhead the topper choice for their students. Some say that students are our future, but we say they're the now. And it all starts with a Sleepyhead.

Making a positive impact

Sleepyhead is more than just a mattress topper. We are committed to hiring college students and giving back to students in need through our topper donations per ten products sold.

We allow students to bring their dreams to life through college competitions, and we implement environmental solutions by reducing our carbon footprint.
