Bed Lofting and Bunking Information

The priority deadline to submit a Fall 2015 lofting request was July 25, 2015. Requests will re-open the 3rd week of classes, pending the availability of parts.

De-lofting will take place September 15 and 17.  High lofting and bunking will commence September 22.

Due to safety considerations, the university policy does not permit residents to construct their own bed lofts or bunks for use in the residence hall rooms. Residents are not allowed to loft, bunk, or de-loft their own beds.   All beds are set to the Junior Loft Height for initial check in unless the resident requests otherwise.

Space configurations in some rooms on campus require beds to be bunked, high lofted, or junior lofted:

All beds at Stratford Heights are fixed at the junior loft height due to suite configurations.

All Daniels triple rooms are set up as two bunked beds and one junior loft. Siddall and Calhoun triple rooms are set up as three high lofts.

Quad rooms in Dabney, Siddall, and Calhoun are set up as two sets of bunked beds.

Siddall and Calhoun beds are unable to be set at standard height due to space.
