Why Dorm-In-A-Box ® Is So Good On So Many Levels!
Dorm-In-A-Box ® is Good for your Students, Good for your University, and Good for the Environment.
Our Research! - Over a two year period, Dorm-In-A-Box ® completed three extensive student/parent surveys with feedback and analysis from well over 2000 participants. Further, we have conducted six formal focus group meetings with students from five diverse Universities across the United States. We have solicited formal input from administrators including Vice-Chancellors, and Vice-Presidents at over a dozen prestigious Universities nationwide.
Ultimately consumers vote with their pocketbooks, even for education, and we at Dorm-In-A-Box ® strive to understand the purchasing process as it relates to the freshman experience.
We asked survey respondents:
If your University provided all of your dorm room essentials priced 30% - 60% below regular retail price, was in your dorm room upon arrival eliminating the time and expense of transport to school, and impacting the environment positively, please respond to the following:
88% of parents responded favorably stating, “Yes, I would want the University to purchase this on my behalf.” 76% of blended student & parent participants responded favorably, with parents accounting for less than 20% of the mix.

We deliver over $1200 worth of residence hall essentials for as little as $399 and do it in the most unique and efficient manner anywhere in the world. In fact we’ve applied for a patent for our methodology and the comprehensive Dorm-In-A-Box ® concept.
Good For Your University! — For over two decades, college costs have risen at an annualized rate of over 6.5% far outpacing the rate of inflation. Price elasticity of education has been greatly impacted with the recent economic down-turn. Dorm-In-A-Box ® not only provides a credible marketing tool which generates enormous goodwill, it is a smart way to demonstrate quantitatively the growing concern over escalating costs.
