This good-looking clip-on shelf is great for dorm rooms where space is at a premium, and can accommodate up to 15 pounds of stuff. It’s easy to install and remove — all you need to do is tighten clamps around the side of the bed — so no need to worry about ruining any dorm furniture, either. Reviewers note it’s especially useful for students who have medical items they may need access to at night, with one mom writing, “I purchased the larger one which is good for books, water bottle, glasses, phone….but my son uses it for all of his diabetes items. This shelf keeps a blood glucose kit, juice box, glucose tablets, phone, and glucose monitor within arms reach which is necessary during the night.” There are several different versions available, including one with a cupholder and one that slides under a mattress if there’s nothing else to clamp onto.
User review: “We got this for my daughter’s dorm room. The kids lifted their beds for more floor space, which all but eliminated the possibility of a bedside table. BedShelfie is the perfect answer. It’s nicely constructed and sturdy; she had it attached to the bunk frame in less than 5 minutes. It is a good value for the price; a nicely made shelf that will be able to go with her through college and beyond.”
