Im brining a rug, what dimensions should it be?

<p>Instead of ordering carpet, im bringing a rug in the dorms. What is the ideal size I should be looking to buy? and It'll probably cover my roommate's side as well, cause hes not bringing one</p>

<p>bump - need to kno please</p>

<p>I'm just bringing one I already had, and it's 5'x8'. You might want something a bit larger, like 6'-8'x8'...check the floor plans of your hall just in case on the university housing website... you should be able to find the floor measurements</p>
