Bunking and lofting your bed

 

When you first get into your room

Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 3.00.30 PMAll apartments and residence hall bedrooms are furnished with a desk, dresser, wardrobe, and adjustable bed for each student. Many beds are already set at the Standard height, while some may be at Junior.

 

What if I want to adjust the height of the bed?

There are three other options. Not all bed configuration types are available in all locations. Please use the chart to determine what is available in your building.

  • Standard height – bed springs 12 inches off the floor.
  • Junior - the most popular and space efficient set-up as shown - allowing the dresser and other items to be stored under your bed.
  • Bunked – one bed stacked on top of the other bed
  • High loft – similar to bunking in terms of height of the top bed, but instead of a bottom bed only the head board, foot board, and a support beam are used.  This allows for a desk to be placed under the bed and still be able to use the desk in its intended capacity.

In adjusting your bed, you will need:

  • A rubber mallet – available for check-out from the service desk in your building.
  • At least two people total to complete modification of your beds.
  • The written instructions below before beginning modification.

Who changes my bed configuration?

Changing between desired configurations is the responsibility of the student using the provided directions. The exception is for students living on the 2nd floor of the Honors Complex and students wanting high lofts in Bulger, Spanton, and Orr. For the 2nd floor of the Honors Complex and these high lofts, the student will need to submit a request.
