Hi Everyone!

While reading an offer letter to study a program at an Indian university, I found this information below about the residential type. I am only curious to know what 'matters' mean. I know that "matter" means "all physical substances". But, here in this context, what can I understand 'matters' are?

Residential Type: Air Conditioned Room rent (Triple Sharing), food (3 times a day), Refrigerator, Matters, Curtains, Beds, Wardrobe, study table, Chair and free Wi-Fi.

Whoever doesn't own what he promises to those who do not deserve must not promise it.

"Matters" really doesn't fit in this context, which makes me wonder if this wasn't meant to be "mattress," instead.

I agree. "Matters" doesn't work, but "mattress" fits much better.

Mattress does make a lot of sense to me as well, but it's also possible that it's a local term in Indian English that none of us who are not Indian understand.


I lack the imagination for a witty signature.
