Lofting or Bunking Your Bed

Each residence hall bed can be lofted, which is similar to placing the bed on stilts. Many beds are already lofted for you. If your bed is not lofted when you move in, you may check out a free lofting kit at distribution points during move in or throughout the year.

Each bed is also bunkable, which stacks one bed above the other. Bunking equipment may be checked out from the Housekeeping Office at no charge.

Unlofted beds in the lowest position have approximately 11 inches of space from the bottom of the mattress to the floor.
