Bed Style Information
Beds may be raised, lofted, or bunked. Students may request a loft bed or bunk bed before move-in weekend in August. Students may not bring personal lofts. We strongly recommend students contact their roommate to discuss bed needs and wants for their particular residence hall room, especially when requesting beds to be bunked.
LOFT BED: The lofted bed sits approximately 60” off of the floor. Many students set up their desk under lofted beds.
BUNK BED: Choosing the bunked beds allows for the beds to be stacked atop one another. Residents that choose this option will greatly increase the floor space in their room. It is strongly recommended that students contact their roommate to discuss bed needs and wants for their specific residence hall room, especially when requesting beds to be bunked.
RAISED BED: The raised bed sits approximately 30” off of the floor, allowing students to comfortably store their chest of drawers or other personal furniture under their bed. A picture of a standard raised bed can be found to the right.
Requesting a Bed Style

If you submit a bed request on or before Monday, July 31, 2017, the University staff will do their best to have the work complete by Move-In Weekend.
- The first request is free. Any additional requests will result in a minimal fee charged to your student account.
- If your room assignment changes after you submit this request, please contact the Residence Life Office.
- Residence hall furnishings will not be removed from the rooms.
- Due to safety considerations, the University policy does not permit residents to construct their bed lofts or bunks for use in the residence hall rooms.
- In the interest of safety and fire regulations, students are not permitted to have furniture that is fully upholstered or overstuffed such as couches, loveseats, or chairs.
- Students must remove all personal furnishings at the end of the academic year. Any personal furniture left in the room will be discarded, and a charge will be made to the student’s account for the removal of the items.
- Window screens are not to be removed; passageways are not to be obstructed; and improper use or removal of furniture or fixtures is not permitted. The placing of unneeded or unwanted furniture in hallways or on balconies is a fire hazard and not permitted.
