I have recently received this air mattress sofa for a Christmas present and I absolutely love it. I also recently moved back into college and that is where I use it and it works so well for my roommate and my friends and I. It's really comfortable and it's always nice to have another area to sit other than your beds or in a chair when doing homework or just hanging out. I would definitely recommend it to college students. The only downside is that you have to refill it about every two weeks. It's not completely deflated, but I guess it just depends on your liking of how full it is of air for when you sit on it. But I love it. It works really well, is really comfortable, and fits perfectly under my bunked bed at school. So it's really convenient and doesn't take up that much space which is also a nice aspect to it! It would also work really well for like a first apartment type thing. It's big enough to look like a sofa, especially if you cover it with blankets or get a sofa cover for it, but it's also small enough so it won't look overbearing in a smaller living room in an apartment. A thumbs up from me for sure!
