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
