Let’s be real, university dorm issued window coverings just don’t cut it. Some have terrible gaps that let light in early in the morning and others have gotten so bent out of shape over the years that they don’t provide any privacy at all.

These curtains are made with an extra tight three layer weave so the maximum amount of light is blocked, but they’ll also help make your dorm feel more like home.
