Bed Lofting and Bunking Information

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. 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 triple rooms are set up as two bunked beds and one junior loft

How do I request a loft?

The Lofting Request Form is located inside the Housing Application Portal. After logging in select "Step 2", then "Lofting Request". You will receive an email confirmation of your request. Note: you will need your username (6+2) and password to log into the portal.

If you do not submit a request by the priority date, Then it is assumed that you want your bed set up at the junior loft height.The supply of the high lofts is limited and requests will be filled on a first come-first serve basis. We are unable to guarantee your request for high lofts; however, we will give it our best attempt to fulfill all requests.

If you have any additional questions regarding the beds and lofting or if you are unable to submit your form online, please contact Housing & Food Services.
